The CAS Mix Up Challenge for July is
Colour Your Die Cuts.....
The design team and our fabulous guest designer Susan Joyce from Cat's Ink Corporated
have wonderful inspiration for you over on the blog.
There are video's links too, to inspire you further......
This is my card....
Colour your Die Cuts and keep your card CAS.
Include some stamping and your choice...My choice is ink blending and splats.
I die cut the flower out of watercolour card.
This gave me the shape and confidence to free hand draw my flower inside the die cut.
I coloured my flower with a light wash of grey watercolour, charcoal pencils
and black Indian ink.
I die cut a further five flower shapes to add dimension.
The leaves have been stamped, colour washed and hi-lighted with a black pen.
The background has been masked and blended with distress inks.
I finished off with stamping the sentiment, silver foiling in the centre of the flower
and white splats.
So many techniques to use to colour in your dies.
By using the die cut as a template enabled me to try,
for the first time drawing my own flower.
I am looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.
