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.
