There is a new challenge over at PolkaDoodle Challenges and the theme is "anything goes" but the DT were asked to add a die cut or two to their project, which with these wonderful kits is not at all hard. Here's my project for the new challenge ...
I have layered the papers, aging the edges with raw umber pan pastel and adding a subtle glittery overcoat. . I added a further panel using the largest of the Elegant Nest dies. Again I "aged" the edges. Next I stamped and coloured the flower branch (with pan pastels), cutting them out with the matching doublet die. I also stamped some butterflies, again using the matching die to cut them out.
I have used the Elegant Flourish die to add more movement, cutting it out with one of the matching papers and added some leaf sprigs (from Birdhouse 'Doublet' set of 6 dies).
The sentiment is a stamp from the Belle Papillon set with a grey Memento ink pad. In fact on all the stamped images I have used the same ink colour. I thought that it would soften the feel. The centre of the flowers have a "dollop" of Nuvo Glitter Accents in Aztec Gold.
Please do join in with us this fortnight and remember the theme is "anything goes". If you get the chance have a look through all the DT blogs to get "lashings and lashings" of superb inspiration.
It's Friday and I am bracing myself for a busy weekend and just hope the weather doesn't scupper our plans. Have a great weekend everyone,
