I love it when I try something new and it works!  This die coordinates with a beautiful stamp called Gentle Whisper by Penny Black.  The problem is that the stamp is much larger than the die, so they don’t really coordinate at all!  I sold the stamp but hung onto the die in order to try this new-to-me technique of coloring on the die cut!  As always, I used Zig markers and a water brush.  After the image dried, I sprinkled droplets of water for that speckled effect.

Next I cut a black oval using Gina Marie Designs Stitched Oval dies, then placed it into an embossing folder for added dimension.  Another oval of fuschia brings out the purples in the flower.  I stamped Stampin Up’s Dictionary in black onto a white card base; I like how the type is a cool contrast to the organic/nature feel of the rest of the card!  Lastly, I lifted the flower with bits of white foam tape, but in retrospect, I should have used black fun foam!  🙂  Nevertheless, I think this card is stunning and I’m glad I kept this die!

I just love this die which coordinates with the poppy in Penny Black’s Blooming Garden set!  I cut this from watercolor paper then colored with Zig markers, blending the colors with a water brush.  Again, I die-cut the oval in black then embossed it in a folder and added an orange layer beneath it for contrast.

I took photos of these cards in the early morning because the light is so great and casts wonderful shadows!
