Can't believe it's Monday already...the weekend went by way too fast!
But the good news is we start a new challenge at Paper Makeup today! We want to see your die cuts and punches!
I use my Silhouette for most of my die cutting. It used to be my Cricut until that decided to die on me a few years ago. While I may not use it to it's full potential, it definitely opens a lot of doors in creating for me that I never had access to before.
Frames images and turn it into a cut file! And it was the perfect placement and size to use one of the images from the Dandy Wishes set!
Before printing and cutting out my image, I added a little wash of watercolor to some paper. When it cut out, I was a little bummed that not very much green made it into the cut, but it ended up lining up perfect for the image!
My background paper was a little brighter than I wanted, so I found this cool patterned vellum in my scraps pile to cover up a small section in the middle. Then just stamped a little sentiment flag and added a few blue flags under it to help pull that color across the card from the watercolor.
Then I want a little crazy with the gems. I wanted them there so I had a place to add some glue to the vellum...but I may have added a few too many? Maybe not, but sometimes I'm not sure where to stop when it comes to gems and pearls :)
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
