More Stamping Contrasts- Die Cutting
I promise you’ll have a break from me for a day or two! Just needed to post the last Stamping Contrast from Make The Day Special Stamp Store blog. The lovely Julia Altermann who is a real fun and talented teamie produced a gorgeous misted,layered and embossed creation here.
We were playing around with the Fresh Cut Florals set and matching dies
I drew a circle onto some card and starting with the darker colours stamped each of the matching die cut pieces with ink and the matching lead vein too.
Amazing how by using non leaf colours, it’s hard to tell they were originally leaves! After bending each petal and sticking them around the pencilled circle, I added the previous layer’s colour as the colour for the next vein and just gradually added each layer of leaves.
Once filled in I added a flower as the centre and then traced around the edges of the petals and cut out leaving a straight central piece.
I die cut the ‘happy’ twice, mimicking the flower stem as one was cut in green and used as a shadow. I then mounted it on an acetate tent base and added washi tape to accent the edges.
Finish with a green swirly dashed line to add movement and it’s done!
I loved this challenge – and it seems lots of the blog readers have too. If you’ve been inspired by any of the contrasts, there’s a linky and there’s even a chance of a small prize too!
Better let you enjoy your weekend!
See you next week.. xx
