I am continuing my journey through dies I have bought but not used and today its the turn of the Press Cut Woodland Scene. I bought this die at a show when I first demonstrated for the Art of Craft as I simply fell for the frame however I never got around to using it!
I thought this technique of using Scraper board to die cut the frame and woodland scene would be perfect.
I cut the frame die in copper scraper board and lightly sanded it to bring out the embossed patterns. I mounted this over a black frame cut using the rectangular die in the set.
I then cut the same die in black and copper coloured card mounting each one behind the other slightly to give a shadow effect.
I mounted this over a background I made using dye based ink pads in red and yellow giving the sunrise effect as shown.
I finished the card as shown using more layers of black copper and white.
Ive made quite a few different cards with this die so expect it to keep popping up!
