Today's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use a die cut! Easy peasy, right? and the Fabulous sponsor is Copic! Woot!
I recently received a die cut by Scrap FX and gorgeous Jillybean Soup papers in an awesome kit that I won and have used them for my design team project.
Here is the die cut and it's original packaging (isn't it adorable?):
Since the die cut is not white and I knew I wanted to color it with Copic markers, I covered it with white gesso.
I colored the tree with Copic Markers and also colored the grid for the window of the house. (YG06 - green, E47 - brown, R29 -red)
After I dry fit the papers for the roof and house, I decided I didn't like the window grid in red and painted it over with cream.
Here is the finished card:
I made it for my sweet aunt and uncle who recently put their gorgeous ten acre property on the market and moved to a much more manageable cottage in a senior community. I know this was a very difficult decision and transition for them and wanted to send them a little happiness.
I hope you will hop over to Frosted Designs and check out the other design team members projects, then join us in making a project using a die cut. Be sure to link it up for the chance to win an awesome prize from Copic!
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments!
