Using your hot foil plates a different way!

 Hi there.   Dawn here to share a card today I've made with products from our sponsor Birch Press Design,


My card today uses two different products from the Birch Press Design range.... a hot foil plate and a die set.
And I'm using the hot foil plate a little different way




I took the Birch Press Hot Foil plate (String Art) and instead of using with foil, I used it to emboss my card.   I then took my green ink blending brush and using the ink already on it, blended all over the panel but leaving the centre clear.  I then used the die from Birch Press (Prime Peony Duo-contour layers) to make my focal point.  I die cut the leaves from two different greens and then cut the flower from white card and used some different pink Altenew inks to colour the different layers.  There are two different flowers and stems.  The sentiment strip is a pre-printed one from Creative Expressions Everyday Sentiment sheet.  

Do come and join us at Die Cut Divas for our Anything Goes Challenge.

Watercoloring with Nuvo Shimmer Powders

 Hello... Dawn here to share a card with some watercoloring. 

Altenew is our sponsor this month, and the challenge prize is Altenew Artists' Watercolor 24 Pan Set ($49.99 value).   Altenew will issue a 100% discount code to the winner.

This month's challenge: Watercoloring


Don't forget to you also have to use a die/embossing  etc - anything as long as you use your die cut machine. 


I used Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit - Hello Beautiful in this card.   I started by using Altenew silver embossing powder to emboss the largest flower from the stamp set in the kit onto some mixed media paper.   For my watercolouring I took some Nuvo shimmer powders and tapped a small amount into the wells in a painting palette and added some water. I used a blue, pinky red, yellow and green powders.   This makes the most amazing shimmery paint.  I added the paint to the image using two colours on each flower and leaf.   Once it had dried I used the matching dies to cut it out.    Next step was to die cut a panel using Altenew's Mix and Match frame dies and add some splatters with the paints and some with black paint as well.   I layered this panel over some light green card so you can see it through the holes.   The sentiment is from Altenew's Sentiment Strips #3.  It's layered onto some silver card.

I hope you're inspired to play along, I'll see you in the challenge gallery.
