Dancing shadow


Taking one image from the Dancing with Shadows CD I've created a selection of cards trying to make them all a wee bit different. 


 Front of card completely covered in a background bluebell paper which is inked around the edges with Tim Holtz plumice stone distress ink. the main topper is layered to give a thin blue frame. 

A plain while card with the edges distressed with stormy sky ink. The topper consists of three layers cut using nestabilities labels seventeen dies.

 Pretty in Pink ... Same bluebell image but mounted on pearlised pink on a distressed milled lavender card.

Better get tidying ...

This little corner has been very neglected of late. Studying and work have gotten in the way of a lot recently so not much happening.  In the mean time I have bought the Shapez component for the Creatopia as the latest toy for the craft room. Shapez is basically a die cutting machine so having fun cutting and embossing scraps of paper and card. There's something very definite and satisfying about that crunch as the die cuts through the card. I don't know sometimes it's the little things that amuse. 

Background is embossed, die cut flower shapes in different colours and textures layered.

Layering multiple die cut shapes.

Multiple die cut shapes using x-cut and nellies dies.
