BSS IDEA - Beautiful New Die Cut

Welcome to the Buffalo Stamps and Stuff Monday Idea.

I purchased the Sizzix Die I used in today's card thinking I would make a pretty multicolored background using my
distress inks and the sponge applicator.

Die - Sizzix 661800 (Tim Holtz)

Instead, I ran the die through my cutting machine
twice with black card stock. I then cut a piece of
white card stock slightly bigger than the die and
taped one of the die cuts to the white card stock
with removable tape.  Then, using my Copics, I colored
in the spaces on the die cut like you would a stencil.
When I was finished coloring, I  removed the die
and sprayed the colored image with perfect pearls
mixed with water in a mini mister. (Gold).
When it was dry, I adhered one of the black
die cuts over the colored image.  The other black
die cut, I cut out the bird and the flower at the top
right and popped them up over the original.
Adhered to the Aqua card, added the black stones
along the edges.

I loved the die when I bought it, but I really loved the finished
card.  Hope you do too.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day.  Until later..

It's terrific, Sue! I love the shading you have accomplished - this is a new die to me, and I'm enamored with your use of dark shades and drama in it - like a story unfolding. Have a wonderful week. hugs, de
