Stretch Your Dies – Day 3
Kristina Werner had a fun technique to share on day 3 – Die cuts within larger die cuts. This technique was great in and of itself. But, what I really loved was the paper she created using distress inks as watercolors. I couldn’t wait to try this out and create some of my own paper. Here’s a close up of one of the sheets I made. I used some distress inks and some Kuratake Gansai Tambi Watercolors. I just loved it. I created two backgrounds…haven’t used the other one yet though.
I really liked how this card turned out. I used my silhouette to die cut the different shamrocks. I then arranged those shamrocks on some post it tape and used a circle die to cut them out as a circle shape. It was a bit tedious to put foam adhesive on all the tinier die cuts, but I think it is well worth it.
Here is a technique that may take a bit more effort, but I believe the results are fantastic!
