This die is only available over Spellbinders.
you are amazing-001

Isn't that a LOT? However, it kind of looks OK with so many mixed elements, riiiight?
I relied on the die (stacked with black card stock and alcohol-inked vellum) and made it as a focal point. Underneath, I used the die for dry-embossing and the pattern paper for textures and added shine.
you are amazing-002

The shine and textured look derive from Alcohol Ink Gold Metallic Mixatives are unexpected and organic!

Hi Virginia, I adore both cards, I have had my eye on the die that you used in your 2nd card but now that I have seen how you colored that 1st die I have fallen in love with that die, you did such an amazing job on that first card I feel like I just have to have that now, you are so creative, I would of never thought to do it like that, I guess that is why you are the designer and I am the one reading your blog everyday, LOL. Thanks for all your creative ideas, I really appreciate it.
Congratulations, #71 Tracey Magner, please e-mail me to claim your prize by March 25th
