Purple and Gold

Hello!

Still in California and using up a few more bits that I have been saving. These come from Greta  and Betty (Thank You so much).

I heat embossed the diagonal striped panel in Gold, then colored the iris's with the watercolor brush tip pens. I fussy cut them out (ya I so dislike fussy cutting...but it was worth it.) and popped a couple in each embossed panel.  Added a Hero Arts sentiment and mounted it on a layer of purple which was also sponged a bit along the edges for added depth and texture. I made two and just changed up the sentiment strip.




Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. Wow--absolutely beautiful work, Cat! I never thought to use the die cut that way--love it! Trying to talk myself into more fussy cutting so I don't have to buy all the dies, but we'll see if that works--haha!
