I’m really pleased with the card I have to show you today.
I was very blessed with a gift voucher from a friend of mine and she said she would collect and post me the craft goodies all the way from the USA. Talk about a child in a candy store. I chose some dies 2 by Tim Holtz and one Spellbinders. As soon as the package arrived I wanted to play and this is what I have made.
This was a great card to make and I think I will be playing with this die and stamp set in the future. Such a clever concept, dies, stamp and embossing folder all in one package.
This is a small card for me5x5, but it works well. I stamped the images using some Staz On and then die cut what I wanted. You cannot see it but the right hand cup is die cut. The pieces left over I used to test my colours. I then stamped the image on to a piece of 4×4 watercolour card. I coloured in my images using Spectrum Noir Aquablends Naturals (Clay, wheat, Beeswax,Pesto Green,Oregano, Blue Marine, Cobalt Blue, Lagoon). I then stamped the sentiment and die cut that and used Clay to colour that in and to run a dash of watercolour around the edge. I then mounted it on Adorable Scoreable but only showing a thin sliver of colour. Whilst the watercolours were drying properly, I used the cup stamp to make a background on my card, just with the ink and no colouring in. Once these were all dried I mounted the cups onto the card and placed my sentiment.
I am really pleased with this card and I shall be trying to come up with some more card ideas using this set.
Thank you once again for stopping by.
