I saw this technique done last week, and fell in love with it, and knew I must give it a try. I started by cutting an A2 size card front from Neenah white card stock. I centered the Texas shaped die on the white card, and ran it through my Cuttlebug machine. I shook out the "innies" and set them aside. I then stamped the bluebonnet flowers on the card front, using colors the flowers are grown in; blue(most common), burgundy, and white Memento inks. To highlight them, I used my twinkling H2O's and gave them a darker shade, and a little sparkle. While the H2O's were out, I used the rainbow colors of ROY G BIV (described in a previous post) to color each of the letters punched out by the die. Again, I put these aside to dry. I drew three lines of barbed wire through the images to look like fencing, and added some light blue dots across the top of the card to represent clouds in the sky. I also used my white Posca paint marker to highlight several of the bluebonnet flowers.
I trimmed 1/4" off two sides of the white card, so a small border of the Lapis Metallic base card would show, and attached the white panel to the dark blue metallic card. I then adhered the multi-colored letters back into the die cut image, as you would place pieces in a puzzle. To complete the card, I stamped the phrase "Mosey on over, friend!" to the lower right corner.
The following supplies, available in the Classy Cards N' Such online store were used to make this card:
TPC Stardream Lapis Pearlized Metallic Paper
Twinkling H2O- Basic Rainbow Set #H2kit13-28412
I hope you will pop on over to the challenge blog, and check out the inspiration, and maybe even submit a card or two of your own. Enjoy, and I will visit again with you soon.
