Let's Look at my Designs
Today, I am sharing projects made with two of the subscription kits:
The Craft Your Life project Kit-Silk Art has the 3D embossing folder, the gorgeous stamp set, stencils and the coordinating die included.
You can do anything you want, with what colours you want, with any technique you want - Winner!
My designs demonstrate what different projects can look like using the same kit.
The 3D embossing folder is mind blowing to me. I used to own a few embossing folders back in the day and I found them boring, so gave them away. I'm so glad they are much better today, 3D is incredible! I love dimension!
For the centre card I stamped the image first in coordinating coloured ink. Then, I splattered it with white acrylic paint. Once dried, I then die cut it and put the die cut into the 3D embossing folder.
To see the final embossed image is magical! (or am I just sad?...lol) Aaaaand, typical me, I just could not bring myself to cut it to the edge of the card front, so you get the whole design here.

Okay, so I went completely different with my designs for the Cape Marguerite! I think I was in a pink mood! Though I did do a little bit of research and apparently depending on the species, you can get pink ones.
One thing the photo does not do very well is show how cool the petals look in real life.
Do you know, that after I die cut each petal arrangement and leaf, I then ink blended lightly on the ends of each one and curled it? This technique has been around a long time and it is used to add dimension, and helps make a die cut looked more 'aged'.
You can see I made a slimline here, and a standard A2 card and the texture is so cool on them both.
