WE all had a fab time yesterday at Daisies in Coventry and the ladies came up with some beautiful variants on the workshop card! Unfortunately I can't seem to get the pictures off my iPhone and onto blogger at the moment so will try to post later in the week!
Back to today and a simple offering using the new Floral Meadow striplet form Sue Wilson for Creative expressions. I love the way that a simple cut of this die, cut solely with the striplet and not the cutting edge, coloured can be so effective.
I started by cutting the striplet in coconut white card down one side and whilst still in the die I used peacock feathers distress Ink to colour the piece. Next I cut the outside edge die in a piece of spearmint foundation card and foam mounted this over the top.
Next I drew around the outside edge of the border die and cut the aperture out with my scalpel this time in coconut white. This gave me a set of reverse mats which I foam mounted together for dimension.
I then sprayed a piece of white seam binding with Phil Martin's new Graceful Mint Ink spray to match the colour. The new Cosmic Shimmer Mint range is a perfect match for the Spearmint foundation card and is a beautiful shade of green, a colour I rarely use. I placed a strip of the ribbon behind the die cit and made a small bow with an off cut.
Finally I stamped the sentiment, form the Creative Expressions everyday set in black archival and added the bow to highlight it.
A simple card that really shows off, in my opinion, the beauty of the detailed striplet die cut.
