1 Die 8 Looks: Part 7 - Creating a Simple Shape out of Die Cut Elements

Hi there,

this is the next part of my series over at the Karten-Kunst Blog. Part 7 is all about Creating a Simple Shape out of Die Cut Elements:

  • add some color to a piece of watercolor paper using Distress Inks (Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage, Peeled Paint, Shabby Shutters)
  • use water droplets  from your Mini Mister to remove some of the color for added texture
  • cut out the Memory Box Sketch Daisy flower and leaves several times from this piece of watercolor paper
  • cut out a circle using the My Favorite Things Stitched Circle STAX from a scrap piece of paper and arrange the elements into this basic shape
  • use a piece of masking paper to keep the elements in place and use the same circle die to cut them out
  • cut out a square from white cardstock using one of the My Favorite Things Stitched Square STAX 
  • adhere the flower and leaves circle to the square using foam dots
  • glue the panel onto a white cardbase
  • cut out the Karten-Kunst Große Texte Danke twice from black cardstock and layer both pieces on top of each other
  • add it to the center of the card and cover the sentiment with Glossy Accents for extra shine and dimension
