PTI MIM #193: Camouflaging Die Cuts

Laura's technique of camouflaging die cuts was this week's challenge on Nichole's blog for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. Having only a little bit of time between baking and watching the Seahawks' game today, I managed to review her video and make my attempt. My blending obviously needs some practice, but here it is anyway. Sorry for the poor quality photo, but it's late at night.

I blended (I guess you'd call it that) Spring Rain, Winter Wisteria and Royal Velvet after masking off the top part of my white panel. Then I die cut the word "thanks" from Wet Paint Cuts Dies so I could stack three more under it so it would be raised up and stand out as the focal image. In the white space above I stamped small snowflakes from In The Meadow using Spring Rain and Winter Wisteria inks. Punching each side with a 1/2" circle punch provided the perfect place to wrap twine and tie in a bow. I used SU dimensionals to adhere this to the white card base. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: White
Ink: Spring Rain, Winter Wiseria and Royal Velvet
Stamps: In The Meadow
Dies: Wet Paint Cuts Die
Other: Twinery Twine, SU Dimensionals and 1/2" circle punch

What a great idea for thank you cards for Christmas gifts Kathy. Those wintry colours look great with the snowflakes and thanks for the tip on using the circle punch for notches to tie twine round. Wishing you a great 2015.

What a fun way to use the camouflage technique. Love the purples.
