Happy Monday! I can’t believe that NEXT Monday is JULY! Goodness, the summer is flying by. And it’s been a LOVELY one here so far. This week will be high 80’s and sunshine – finally a respite from all the rain we have been having. But rain brings happiness to the flowers and makes them lovely – just like these flowers today with the LOVELY WORD DIE.
I want to show two different cards today, each using Ruffled Peony Bouquet (previously released) and one of the new word dies from the June release. First up is a watercolored bouquet.
I added layers of Kuretake Gansai Tambi paint, and then cut the word alone out of black. For easy placement, and to keep it straight, I used the negative piece of cardstock and lay my pieces in as I glued them to the watercolored piece.
Next is an uncolored image using the same Ruffled Peony Bouquet, and the Lovely Word die with its “shadow base.” It gives two totally different looks, don’t you think?
I know it’s a die I will be using often! Check out the entire June release for another fabulous new stand alone word die, along with some crazy awesome stencils, stamps, and dies!
