Dies Days 1: Daisy Collage

Bashful die collage


Penny Black released their new Creative Dies recently and are showcasing them everyday this week on the blog. I have been playing around with them so I have some “Dies Days” lined up for you this week too.

Today’s card features the Bashful Die in a collage panel. I began by masking a border then stamping a background of text in memento London fog ink. I used two stamps from Love Chapter along with the letter background stamp. I then used the bashful die to cut a mask out of a post-it note and sponged both the negative and the positive image with yellow and orange inks. I used a couple of stamps from the Lace Trim set along the top and bottom edge in memento Paris Dusk,  added some sponging and a few  feature words from the Love Chapter stamp. To finish I stamped the letter background on a dark blue die cut flower and attached that to the panel before popping it up on the card base.

Elizabeth, Jill & Peet have die cut inspiration on their blogs today
