Die Cutting a Dash and Looking Dapper

csdt25thnov 001

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Use Die Cuts.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s Billy -Mr Romantic by Crafty Sentiments Designs all dressed up.Altho’ I don’t think you need to save him for just that kind of occasion.He’s very much suitable for male themed cards too 🙂 My soon-to-be-13-year-old son (Oh!The joyful prospect of a teenage son!!Eeek!Help!) loves to don a trilby and waistcoat when he wants to look smart too.So this card is in his honour 🙂 Anyway,back to Billy…he has been coloured with Polychromos Pencils that have been blended out using low odour oils thinners and a paper stump. As you can probably tell I’ve made a shaped easel card using a set of dies that have also cut the paper layers too,the top one being a half and half concoction.I also used a die to make it look as if Billy has been torn from a sketch pad.The greeting has been cut from a die too.The buttons aren’t real either.They’ve been cut from red card using a die set.Yeah,I kinda went die cut crazy!!
