I want to thank the ladies at CAS(E) this Sketch for choosing my card as the winner of last week's challenge...you thrilled me to no end...I am so honored!!
As soon as I saw this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, I went searching through all my stamps and dies to see if I had one big, concentric shaped something that I could cut in half (that's how I was seeing the sketch)...I found a recently purchased Hero Arts chrysanthemum die and thought...PERFECT...
Then I had to think color....I decided that yellow with a black sentiment would be perfect, but didn't want just one yellow for the flower, so I used three. Scraps!! I used my My Favorite Things circle dies and die cut 3 different yellow circle/rings and adhered them together on typing paper and then die cut (I now use typing paper, because I have found that the thickness when die cutting heavyweight paper PLUS another layer of even lightweight paper can be difficult)...
I LOVE how this turned out! The different yellows look amazing, and just how brilliant are you to cut the flower this way!!?? Amazing card!!ReplyDelete
