Colouring Saturday...

Happy Saturday,

I thought I should share a card made with the new Stamps to Die for to match the new Die release from Sue Wilson for Creative Expressions.  I started with the Sunflower trail designed to match the shapes within the Indonesian collection.

I stamped the image twice in moment black in and coloured all of one image.  I added the sentiment to the second image, cut out the oval central die from the Sumatra die and coloured just those flowers showing in the die cut.  I then foam mounted the central oval over the fully coloured image ( all coloured using the Graphmaster alcohol pens.

To make up the card I cut the outline die in the Indonesian background and add the largest die in the Sumatra die to this.  I then cut the centre out using the next die in the Sumatra set.  I placed the die cut and stamped image, with mounting cushion, in the centre.

I made up the card as shown adding n embossed panel using the dahlia garden 8x8" embossing folder on a piece of DCWV core card.

Enjoy...

  32. Hi John. Lovely happy colours today. Perhaps the sunflower stamp will encourage the sun to come out for a bit - it is meant to be spring after all.
