CUTplorations january - reminder

image source: Jørn Allan Pedersen

Popping in with a reminder about the January die cutting CUTplorations challenge over at STAMPlorations. I've another project for you today. Distress inks but without the smooshing.

For the Birds die, Hello Sunshine die, Retro Mod Shapes (retired)

Die cut the birds to make a mask and then stamped through the negative with a small square shape to create the pattern. Die cut the sentiment and stamped it in a similar manner before adhering it. Cool, eh? I was inspired by this design.

TIP: Start with lighter ink colors and stamp more of them. Save your darker colors for last and use them sparingly.

Have you joined us yet? Check out more inspiration from the DT and the CUTplorations January gallery here. Look forward to seeing you there. Thanks for coming by my blog today.
