Stampin'B Challenge - Diecuts & Piercing

Faith (Markie's Mom) picked a great challenge for the Stampin'Bs this week -- two of my favorite things: diecuts and piercing. Actually, she wanted us to use TWO diecuts. So I used two new ones I got recently, a Labels 13 and a Ribbon Banner.

My image is the large waterlily from Mark's Finest Papers set Floating Along, colored with Copic markers and then cut out using the Labels 13. Because I wanted a smaller mat than I could have gotten using two dies, I laid the die upside-down on a piece of MFP Aqua Light cardstock and traced around the edge. I then cut it out. The sentiment also comes from Floating Along, and I cut it out using one of the banners in Spellbinders' four-piece Ribbon Banners set, sponging inside the die with Tim Holtz Distressed Tumbled Glass.

After cutting a piece of Prima Sweet Fairy DP to fit the front of an A2 card, I glued it down and then attached my stamped, matted image, adding the ribbon banner. Then I pierced the corners. Voila! I was done. Thanks for stopping by.

This is SO pretty in pink, Lois!! Your choice of die cuts is perfect for this image, and your piercing in corners sets everything off so nicely. Lovely!
