Hello. I have a card to share today using a die set I’ve been wanting to use for ages, and some gold splattering.
I die cut a honeycomb layer from a Honey Bee Stamps layering die set, only using two of the layers. Once adhered to the white card base, I splattered with Liquitex acrylic ink – the metallic set.
The Coneflower was die cut from varying tones of blue card with some Distress Inks also blended onto each layer to create a variety of blue within each petal. The same with the green leaves – die cut from green card stock, then green Distress Ink blended onto them.
Before gluing them together, I also splattered them with the same gold acrylic ink.
The centre of the coneflower is die cut from a piece of water-colour card stock onto which I had painted the gold acrylic ink – roughly to create some dimension.
The sentiment is a light blue and dark blue layer, slightly off-set.
I added some glass cabochons for further interest.
I shall be entering this into the following challenges:
Seize The Birthday – birthday with sparkle and shine
Color Throwdown – blue, green, gold
Craft Rocket Challenge – sparkle and bling
The Flower Challenge – flowers and occasions
