My latest fun... I'm playing with Three Cool Chicks and their trendy ideas. Days 3 and 4 were about stencils and die cuts. Ta da. I am (since summer) the proud owner of an alphabet die. And before I busted a couple individual letters out of the pack, I die cut the whole caboodle a couple times from chipboard. Cuz ya never know, right?
Enter my luscious Dylusions ink sprays. I sprayed over the negative and onto white CS. Ta da.
My plan had been to use the white CS to make a card. But my wannabe-artist-heart beat faster when I saw this abundance of gorgeous color plus typography. I was almost more enthralled with the color-intense negative than the positive. What to do? Then after taking these photos, as I laid the negative on the positive on my way back to my ironing board (read: crafting space), I had a lightbulb moment. Intrigued? Stay tuned for more - I got three cards outta these bad boys.
Here is #3, which was actually the third one I made but you get to meet him first ;)
Let me just say this was what I had leftover after #1 and #2. Now the "hi" in the midst of other letters is no new thing. Just new for me. Thought about die cutting some shape out of this piece but I couldn't bring myself to cut off any of that scrumptious color except for a teensy bit around the edges. So I cut my card base down to be a bit more square and attached.
I had cut the "h" and "i" out of some gold CS (like I said, stay tuned!) and decided I liked the shape of the negative. Looks kinda like a house, doesn't it? Stuck it on and stitched for some interest. The bottom edge needed something. Not sure I like my solution, but oh well, now it has "something"! Popped a little scrap of gold behind a few of the holes too. See?
So, once again thanks to Yvonne, Amy and Julie for all the fun I'M having ;) Check them out if you haven't yet.
So that's my Soup and Nuts for the Tuesday Trigger photo over at Moxie Fab.
