As soon as I saw the sketch for the current CAS Colours & Sketches challenge, I thought of an older Memory Box die which I hadn’t used for quite a while – the Bubble Burst die. When I pulled it out, I was actually surprised to see that the date on the packaging was 2017 – I had thought it was a little older than that!
Anyway, I used the die to cut a white panel and then used Distress Oxide inks (Tumbled Glass, Cracked Pistachio and Shaded Lilac) to create a blended background. I cut a strip of the blended background and adhered it to my card base before adhering the white panel on top. I then die cut a circle and the sentiment from the unused section of the blended background and adhered them to my card. Finally, I die cut my newest Memory Box die (Daisy Silhouette) three times. I coloured one stem and then stuck the die cuts together. Originally I had planned to cut off the long stem but I liked how it aligned with the lines created by the Bubble Burst die so I didn’t!
I added some sparkle to the daisy with a Nuvo glitter gloss pen – it’s quite shimmery in real life, but so difficult to capture on my camera…
Thanks for stopping by!
