I wanted to share with you my latest card creation using Cheery Lynn Dies!
Using the dies with white cardstock allows me the flexibility to ink to match my pattern paper. I used distress ink at first and did not get the intensity that I wanted. So I grabbed three of my new Inka Golds and tried them out. It was so easy to colour my die cuts! I know that this will be a technique I will use frequently!
As you might have seen, I have been loving the look of pearls to enhance the elegance of the die cuts. On the Butterfly, I used Inka Gold in Apricot & Pink, applied a layer of Glossy Accents and then added the pearls for a finishing touch.
My mother keeps asking when I was going to make a card for her - so here Nana, this one is for you!
