Monochrome Cameo With New Release Dies

I used a 6" x 6" card for this particular design as it fitted the frame perfectly.  The frame I used is the largest Trellis Square which I cut in black, I cut the next size down scalloped rounded corner square in white and embossed it with the Garland Fancy Embossing Folder out of the Idyllics set as it has a nice small pattern.  This was glued in the centre.

I cut the Ascot Pillbox head in black, I cut two of the hat and of the feather.  I stuck the first hat in place on the head and cut the brim off the second one before layering the top part on with silicone glue for added dimension, I also added both of the feathers again sticking them with silicone glue.  There is a close up of this to allow you to see the detail, this doesn't always photograph too well as its all layered in the same colour.  I completed my cameo by adding a punched flower to cover all of my joins with a pearl centre.  This was then positioned centrally on the prepared card base and stuck down with 3d foam pads.

For the sentiment I die cut the centre ellipse shape from the Beautiful Buckle die set in white and added the Aunty die cut in black from the Family Members Sentiments Set 2 which I stuck in place with 3d foam and finished with a couple of pearls.
