I played with the Mason Jar Die yesterday and wanted to share what I have discovered while playing: a faux watercolor look on Vellum! The Mason Jar was screaming to be cut with vellum!

CardsDino-Happy-Birthday.jpg

Made for Silhouette Sketch Challenge. I drew the card base panel, the center window and the zigzag shape in Silhouette Studio. Silhouette shapes used: present, present tag (both are free shapes) I am very surprised how well the pattern on the small tag is cut – the smallest window is less than 1/16″! The present, dino, tag background piece, the cloud are all colored with copics: Y38, YG03, Y06, R22, BG0000; Patterned Paper: Sweet Sundress (Neapolitan – American Crafts); Stamps: dino and party hat (Party Posse – Paper Smooches), sentiment (Holiday Occasions, Everyday Occasions – Joy’s Life)

mama said… Layers

Phew… I really struggled with this card! I almost fainted when I saw myself keep adding stuff to it… Because I just need that many layers to cover the mistakes I made (sign…) As you can see in the photo, the ruffled paper is very pretty itself… I do not wish to cover it with the butterfly but it feels empty without it… Let’s just say that all the layers and textures of this Case Study Challenge inspired me… Using Play Date Cafe Color Palette and Freshly Made Sketch: Also enter for Paper Players Challenge: floral and Runway Inspired Challenge.
