Today I am back with a couple cards that I recently put together using the lovely Altenew Rose Queen Die Set. I got two cards from using one die-cut.
I began by die-cutting the Queen Rose Outline Die from a piece of masking paper. I stuck this to a piece of watercolour card stock, selected some Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and used a large blending brush to blend my inks from the top of my card piece, gradually fading the blending so the bottom third of my card remained white. Once the blending was complete, I removed the masking paper die-cut, to reveal the white outline of the flower, and decided to retain the die-cut to make my second card.
- Tide Blue
I splattered some gold alcohol ink to add some extra interest and dimension.
I completed my first card by adding a lovely gold glittery "Hello" sentiment. For this I used Altenew's Fancy Hello Die.
As I said, I retained the masking paper die cut and decided to use this on some pearly blue card stock, this time placing it on the panel so that it was hanging downwards. I used quick drying glue with a fine nib to glue down the die cut.
I layered that panel onto some purple card and then applied to my 5x7" card base. Again, I used the Fancy Hello Die for my sentiment. I finished this card by adding some white irridescent sequins for extra texture.
I love that I got two cards from one die-cut.
Have your tried this technique? I love it.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
