Bright Flowers

Flowers always make me happy. Unfortunately we only have green leafy things growing in our garden, no flowers, so I have to make do with those I create in my craft room.

This is one of my friends dies that I cut out some copies of on camp, but she had thrown away the packaging sorry and couldn’t remember what company it was from. I used the same technique as I did for the alcohol ink poppy die cards I made recently, except that I used dye inks to create the colourful backgrounds.

Shown is my new giraffe die from Couture Creations, which I made 3 different cards from. I hope they provide you with some inspiration.





The backgrou20161222_101724nd for this card was made by swiping alcohol inks across some gloss card, then the giraffes lifted out and used individually on the card.






20170101_135548For this card I used the silhouettes of the entire tower of giraffes. The background was again made with alcohol inks (using the marbling technique) which was then placed behind the black card cut out.



20161230_17504620170101_140153When I was cutting out the die for this card, the giraffe legs got stuck and wouldn’t cut out properly, so I left them in and slid a piece of patterned paper behind their heads.
