Creative Ideas With Couture Creations – “Peace”
Time for a little peace and calm among the madness, don’t you think? Tenuous link but you get where I am coming from, I am sure.
This one didn’t end up quite the way I had expected but it turned out right nice anyway. *happy sighhh
Using the Parquet Tiles cut, foil and emboss die I chopped out a piece of black cardstock and then chopped that down into two halves with scissors.
These bits were then stuck in two corners of some patterned paper that I have already layered onto the front of a rectangular card – YES, not square, lol.
I made the sentiment panel with some offcuts of black and white card. On this I stuck some die cut leaves and flowers, keeping a couple back for some titivation – apparently a real word and not just a gigglefest – later on.
The Peace sentiment cut, foil and emboss die was then inked up with two different shades of green ink and ran through the Cut’n’Boss with a bit of white card. This gave a lovely ombre – shaded – effect to the sentiment.
If you’d like a more animated idea of how this was achieved, it’s similar to this video that I shared a while back.
Finally I used some of those left over flowers to add some little spots of loveliness.
Not entirely sure that using black cardstock was the right move for a card that was supposed to have a “soft” feel so I was surprised how well it works.
What do you think?
