Celebrate (Memory Box Die cuts)

 

2019-03-07 01.01.59

Hello and welcome

It’s time for the March Happy Little Stampers – Anything goes with Dies Challenge!

A couple of weeks ago, I had some fun playing with some alcohol inks, so one of these  pieces features as the background for this week’s challenge card.

After selecting my alcohol ink panel, I added a frame using the 2 largest hexagonal dies from ‘Fancy That’.

I added die cut Memory Box Shrewsbury Stem die cuts – one in black and one in gold cut to fit in the frame. I selected the colours to stand out against the pink / white background.

After adhering this panel to the card front, I added the  sentiment using Winnie & Walter ‘The Big, the Bold and Party Cutaways’ dies, again cut in black and gold.  They are joined to give the look of the black shadow behind the gold, similar to the flower stems inside the frame.

I was pleased with the way this card turned out, as it’s perfect for several occasions, not just birthdays.

Please head over to our blog and check out the wonderfully inspirational work by the rest of the Design Team!  I hope you will find the time to join our challenge this month.  Good luck!

Thanks so much for visiting
Cheers
Helen
Challenges:
Time Out Challenge #130 – Unique   (An alcohol ink panel like  my background is truly unique as it can never be made exactly the same.)
As You Like It Challenge – Layers – one or many (and why)? I like to layer with images, die cuts or sentiments rather than larger layers as gives a little more detail than a one layer card can.

I live in sunny Queensland, Australia with my husband and daughter. Since I was a child, I have always loved to create and have enjoyed all kinds of crafts, sewing and painting. China painting helped develop my understanding of colour and design. Over the last few years card making has taken up a major part of my crafting time as I love to play with new techniques and mediums. Since beginning my blog, entering various challenges has encouraged me to grow my skills and creativity.
