Thursday Thoughts

Today I'm sharing a card I made for the CUTplorations October Challenge - cutting it a bit fine, but I've got there!


It was the colour graduation that really caught my eye and that's how I decided to go forward with my card.

So no house image on my card even though that was my first thought. Nope I went instead with a garden of flowers stamped and coloured to echo the colours from the inspiration image.

My main die cut element is the word 'gorgeous' which is cut several times to give it dimension and a little shadow effect. The colours were achieved by simply drawing lines with the fat end of my copic pens before using the die.

I also die cut a couple of lines of stitching to pick up on the stitched greeting from the inspiration photo.

Stamps: Stamplorations, Blossom Sprays #2, Bold Sentiments Gorgeous
Inks: Mememnto, rich cocoa
Pens: copic, G24, G28, Y13, Y18, V12, V17, R22, R29
Die: CUTplorations, Gorgeous; Paper Smooches, Stitched 

Huge thanks for your visit to my blog today, I really appreciate you taking the time.  And keep crafting!
