Stretch Your Dies - Day 2 - Flower Dies

Today I completed the assignment for yesterday's class, which was, Flower Dies.  I chose to try Yana's technique of using flower dies to create a background from the negative space from the dies.

All the dies I used will be listed below.  Basically, all you do is arrange your flower dies on a piece of card that you are going to use for your top layer, like you would if they were stamps, then run them through your cutting machine and mount the resulting panel on to a coloured card base.

This is the card.


Inside Detail

Dies used:

MFT - 'Wild Greenery', 'Upsey Daisies' & 'In & Out Diagonal Stitched Rectangles'
Spellbinders - 'Floral Flourishes'
SSS - 'Partial Cut Flowers'
Glossy Accents for the water droplets.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and for any comments.  I truly appreciate you all and I will reciprocate where possible.  Have a lovely evening/day.  Hazel xx
