I try and play along at CASology whenever I can and this week's cue card is Number. I have had this Penny Black number die for ages but not got round to using it yet so had to have a play....
I hadn't realised until I made this card that Kymona had used the same die.....great minds :)
I inked up a piece of cardstock with a range of distress inks - Seedless Preserve, Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean and Peacock Feathers and splattered watter over it to create a mottled look. I then cut it out with the die and layered up on a few layers. I combined the die with this fab sentiment from My Favourite Things. The painted look prompted me to add some splatters in the corners.
I hope you like my inky number card. This die is great fun....
Thanks for stopping by,

Love the die and your blended colours. Such a clever card xReplyDelete
Well I do like your number card. Great choice of colors and I like how you included the splashes.ReplyDelete
I love this die - how perfect for a b'day card - you don't have to reveal the exact age!! Julia xxReplyDelete
Great colours was the first I saw and then the beautiful white edge of the wish-diecut; that works perfect! Hugs, GerrinaReplyDelete
So very artsy! Love it! That's a fun die too! Wow! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week. Always a treat to have you! ��ReplyDelete
This is simply stunning and fabulous Sarah! Love the colours you've chosen and they've blended perfectly but the awesome placement of those numbers with the wish word die make it eye popping and gorgeous! XReplyDelete
It is a fun die, Sarah, and I love the way you've inked it. The large sentiment is perfect with it.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous colours, they totally caught my eye in the CASology gallery. And loving the corner splatters, such a cool idea. Funny how we can have a die or stamp sitting around for ages before we use it, yet we can't wait for it to arrive......ReplyDelete
