The Male Room - #61 Die Cuts

A really fabulous theme for the new challenge at The Male Room - Die Cuts. And who doesn't have a few of these tucked away in their stash?

I wanted to make use of a Spellbinders set of dies I've had for ever and don't get out often enough, so on went the thinking cap and this is what I came up with:

I prepared a watercoloured card in some beautiful blues and left it to dry. While waiting I cracked on and prepared the die cut amazing by die cutting it once in black and several more times in white to make it really pop form the card. I also stamped and die cut the little stitched circle which got popped up on a foam pad.

Dies: Spellbinders, Sprightly Sprockets; CURplorations, amazing; MFT Die-namics, inside/out circles
Stamp: Stamplorations, bold sentiments
Inks: Ranger distress, meramid lagoon, peacock feathers, cracked pistachio, blueprint sketch; Versafine, onyx black 

Well that's me done for today! I just need to remind you to go feast your eyes on what the rest of The Male Room's DT have created using dies - HERE - and then I'll bid you good-bye.

Thanks for visiting and keep crafting!
