Hi everyone... i hope that you had the chance to join us for our hop this week to preview Becca Feekens newest line of die called Romancing the Swirl. Each of us had the chance to use a few of the new dies to create something special to share with all of you, and wow was it ever fun! And now we all get to mix and match and create even more inspiration for you.
My die i chose for this week is called "Card Creator A2 Corner Cotillion Etched die set". In this set you get this beautiful swirled back round die and the center oval and also some brand new flower dies. I wanted to do something a little different with this one so i used muted tones of ivory and yellow and then added in some tan card stock to match a bit of print that i used for the base of the card behind the sentiment. This really popped out the colors.
And then for the sentiment i used a matching brown ink to stamp the beautiful sentiment and inked the inside rim of the die ever so slightly with tea stained ink and a sponge dauber to give it more depth. All the flowers are handmade so the colors for them matched perfectly with all the other gorgeous pieces in the set. This is one of my favorites and i have lots more to share in the weeks ahead so be sure and check back soon!
Have a wonderful day ..... Teresa
