more soup and nuts and stencils and die cuts (Moxie Fab, Three Cool Chicks, SSS)

You stayed tuned - good for you.  Here are cards #1 and #2 from my fun session with alpha dies and Dylusions spray inks.  Got your sunglasses on?  Here they come.

This was my first idea.  I told you I loved the color saturation on the negative so that' what I went with first.  Thought it worked best with black.  But then I punched some holes in the black to let the white card base peek through.  Love that effect.  And, a la JJ the die cutting queen, I popped some gold CS letters into the negative to emphasize the "hi".  Here's a shot of the gold for ya.

Also told you that I had a "wow" moment when I was holding both the white CS and the negative that I had used as a mask in my hand.  This is what I saw.  That cool shadow effect.

So I die cut the wonky rectangle, emphasized the "hi" by drawing white stitches around it to match the chipboard "U" I had picked out to go with the message.  Then after DD said "what's this "U" card for?" we decided I needed to make those stitches black.  Still see a bit of the white peeking out from under the black, eh?  I ran my little Cutter Bee thingy around the edges for a bit interest.  Have to look closely to see it.

And again, I'm playing with these fun groups - Three Cool Chicks, Moxie Fab World and Simon Says Stamp.   Check out my last post if you want to see more about what I did to make these.
