1 Die 8 Looks: Part 1 - Black Silhouette against Alcohol Ink Background

Hi there,

I am starting a new series over at the Karten-Kunst Blog. I would like to show you how to create 8 different looks with just one die. This is Part 1 - Black Silhouette against Alcohol Ink Background:

Before I write down the step by step tutorial I would like to show you the die I used on all of my 8 projects. It is the Memory Box Sketch Daisy. It consists of 4 pieces: the outline, the flower and two leaves.

  • create a background using Alcohol Inks (Juniper, Cloudy Blue, Stonewashed, Botanical) and Alcohol Ink Blending Solution on a stitched panel of Lanavanguard 
  • cut out the Memory Box Sketch Daisy from black cardstock 
  • mat the panel onto a piece of black cardstock and create a 1/16'' border with the help of the Mini Perfect Layers Tool
  • add a sentiment from the Ideaology Small Talk Sticker set
