It's not often that I already have a number of challenges in mind when I post
a card, usually I have to hunt a bit.
Not this time 2 cards and plenty of Challenges in mind.
This first one I played around with my new box die from Craftin' Desert Diva I loved it.
What I really loved is the fact that they demonstrate 3 different ways to use the die on
YouTube. I cut the die shape out twice, once on pattern side and once on the plain kraft side
so I could fold the box and have the same gold lines inside and outside.
I have done it so there is a slight opening giving the 3D effect and put one of
my little Fairies in it. She's jumping up out of the box to say 'Happy Birthday'.
I coloured her with Copics and a little bit of glitter pen but you cant see the glitter here.
Before I attached the box and stamped the sentiment I added this wonderful fine
washi tape that is one row of continuous hearts. I added three rows, then attached
the die cut and then stamped the sentiment.
This next card is made from two of the partial side dies I have in set. I then watercoloured a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper. I used Distress Inks and water to get a nice mix going. I added
pink, orange, red, yellow, blue and green but ended up liking the sections with the warm colours.
I cut the pieces out to fit behind and show the colours I liked best.
After I finished attaching and turned the card over I had of course added
a mark there and there (yep where I put the enamel dots :)
Finished off with a lovely Spring sentiment.
Love how this looks and a great way to use up watercolour pieces
that just don't work out to be used as a whole piece.
