It's been a while...new job, end of school year, life!
But here we are with a new card and a new technique:
Using dies to create a background.
What I used:
Digi image by: 2CuteInk
Dies: Gina Marie Wonky Rectangles
Happy Father's Day die - from my stash
Boat and oars die - from my stash
I love dies...They are one of my favorite tools.
My justification is: If I can use it over & over it's worth my money!
So I ordered the boat and oars die
and noticed it matched the Fishing cat digi by 2CuteInk.
But the boat is large so I decided to use it as a background.
I cut a few in kraft colored paper (Michaels) and loved how it looked.
I like the boats, but it needed something else to fill up the smaller spaces.
I decided to add some oars...and loved it.
The image is from the May 2017 release of 2CuteInk.
I colored it back in May so I don't have the Copic colors I used.
I used my Brother Scan & Cut 2 (great investment)
to cut my image and went ahead and added a black border to it.
Check out the glimmer - Wink of Stella baby!
I also decorated the inside of the card,
here you can really appreciate the size and detail of these dies.
A final look at the finished card.
I am flying to Puerto Rico tonight to see my family.
I am going to give my dad his card in person!!!
The card is late, but I love it that I get to give it to him in person!!!
OK, time to finish packing!!
Hope you enjoyed the card and the background technique!!
Thanks for visiting!
