I am back again with this Birthday Wishes Frame Die.
This time I am using just the sentiment. My photos below shows you how I colored the die with gradient of colors. I think the best way (for me) is to make the die cut and then blend in the inks (see top right).
I tried to create colored paper first and then die cut. However, I ended up ruining the sentiment. I think it's because that the paper was still wet from the ink-blending. Since the sentiment is quite intricate, I ruined a few of them.
I am pleased how it turned out with the ink-blending.
I also added some gold stripey color paper for this festive design. The stamping of the balloons was done with MISTI. The new-to-me Nuvo (the gold ink droplets) is really neat. I now want to collect every colors!
It truly is a versatile die if you see my last two posts (here and here).
This is not the last time you see me using this Birthday Wishes die... :)
I hope my samples are helpful if you ever shop over Simon Says Stamp.
Your encouragement and support mean so much to me. Thank you!
