CSC187_zps039d5b48

 

I took the following from the above case study…

  • Due cut letters
  • Vellum/Glassine
  • Pink / Red
  • Teal/Blue
  • Love

and here is my card…

case 187

Supplies used :-

  • Heavyweight white cardstock
  • Daschund Die
  • Clearly Besotted “Love” Die
  • Clearly Besotted Furry Friends Stamp Set
  • Pink Iridescent Sequins
  • Zig 2 way glue Pen
  • Hexagon Inlay Vellum
  • Dylusions Fuschia and Pomegrante Ink Sprays

case 187 1

I dropped spots of ink over the Dacshund with the Dylusions sprays then sprayed once with water and dried with a heat gun, it gave the  diecut a tie dyed feel,so when the card is closed, you can see it through the vellum..
