Wednesday Words

CAS Mix Up want you to colour your die cuts and QKR Stampede have an Anything Goes challenge. Today's card is going into both.


Here's my card:

I started by die cutting the stitched rectangle and then coloured it using distress inks and a stencil.  The stencil is actually meant for water waves but I thought it looked good for sky too.

I stamped the beautiful sentiment and birds on top of the coloured die cut allowing the birds to fly off the edge and create more movement.

Stamps: That's Crafty, Motivational Word Set 1
Inks: Ranger distress, mermaid lagoon, stormy sky, chipped sapphire; Memento, tuxedo black
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched rectangles
Stencil: Heffy Doodle, bubble waves

So pleased to have you visit today, thanks so much.

And keep crafting!
