Don’t ask me what it is, but for some reason I love cutting paper or fabric and find it very relaxing. So I thought I’d do a bit more cutting for the Cutting & Trimming Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I’m also submitting this card into the current Hero Arts Challenge.
Stamps (Hero Arts) Designer Woodgrain, Everyday Sayings & Large Flower Background
I started by embossing the Large Flower Background in white and cut around the outside of the image leaving a small border. Then I just cut around the flowers and leaves to my heart’s content! When I started making cards I didn’t have a craft shop anywhere near me. I needed a scissors to cut out images and came across a curved nail scissors in a local chemist and that’s what I use to this day.
After all that cutting I was left with a framed image of the flowers which I then watercoloured using dried marigold and shabby shutters distress inks. I applied walnut stain distress ink to a piece of white card and using the same ink stamped the woodgrain background. As the white border was around the image, I just adhered the border to the woodgrain background so the flowers are floating free. I only had to use one tiny foam dot to keep one flower in place. The sentiment is stamped with walnut stain distress ink.
Hope you are all having a brilliant weekend:)
