Hi Friends! Welcome to Altenew's new Summer Adventure release! I hope you have some fun summer adventures planned. We have lots of baseball games in our near future, but will be sneaking in some college visits for my oldest when we can!
First up, this must-have word die set in a fun and loose script font, called All About You Word Dies. Seven different words, with coordinating shadow dies.
I've used three of them cut in gold metallic with a white shadow on this card.
The background of this card is from the last big release, the Polk-a-Dot Buds Layering Stencils. There are only two stencils in this set, but if you use an ombre ink blending method, you get a much richer result. I used dark to light for the flowers, and light to dark for the leaves.
Because I really liked the colors from the ink smooshing, I decided to leave most of the pieces in the leaves. I took out a few of the pieces to make the design a little more interesting. Another benefit of leaving all those pieces in the die ... all that luscious texture!
You can trim these leaves down however much you like to get different results. I took one of the taller leaves off the top die, and added a smaller leaf to fill in the hole on the very left on top of the sentiment.
It was fun not knowing exactly what you're going to get. And it was a relatively quick card once I settled on how to arrange it. This would be a great candidate for making multiples.
