{Spotlight Project} Ombre Shadow Words with Cornelia



Hi, Cornelia here today, playing with my CUTplorations word dies.


I made a small set. And here is how I did it:



I used distress inks and some of my CUTplorations dies.
Inked up some white card stock and die cut the words.




I then die cut the words out of my card base and randomly stamped in the same colors around the negative space using the mixed media stamps, Scribbly Splattery Grunge and Mixed Media Elements


I glued black card stock under the negative die cut to give my words more depth, or a shadow if you will and make the words easier to read. 


Did the same with the other cards.


Added various embellishments


or splatters - my favorite type of embellishment!



My supplies:

  10. You could get two cards out of each
    cut - using the negative and the
    positive. Great cards. Very
    colorful.
    thanks for sharing.
