This week I have a couple of painted die cut cards to share. To create this one I first sprinkled leaf green, sunburst yellow and rose red brusho over a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper and spritzed with water to activate the paint. The colours did blend together a little but I was able to keep some distinct red, yellow and green areas. Once dry I used the ‘bodacious’ die from Penny Black to cut several flowers. I also cut white flowers with the same die. When creating my layout I glued down a few white diecut flowers first then coloured ones over the top. I trimmed stems and buds so I could arrange the flowers at different heights and facing different directions.
I embossed a sentiment from the ‘smile today’ set in platinum, trimmed the white background panel and attached it to a white card base.
Stamps: smile today!
Paper: hot pressed watercolour, neenah solar white, white linen texture paper
Paint: leaf green, sunburst yellow, rose red brusho
Also: platinum embossing powder
très jolie carte
This is gorgeous!
Gorgeous creation, I love the layered die cuts!
The brusho flowers are very pretty Heather and I love the way you have added some of these over the top of white die cut ones which mostly remain flat to the card. A very interesting and clever design, and the gold embossed sentiment stands out beautifully too. x
Awesome use of the brusho look. I like that you added the non-colored outline blooms along with these colored ones, and how pretty at the different heights of the stems. TFS & have a good week.
So pretty Heather. Love the arrangement of white and brightly coloured flowers. xx
