This is one way to use a die that highlights a sentiment. It's just one technique, and there are so many others, but I liked the look and was playing with a new stamp set from Altenew, Leaf Canopy. I also used the dies from another stamp set I love: Altenew Framed. For the sentiment I used the words 'Thank Your' from Altenew Floral Frames.
To create this A2 card I began by using the solid Leaf Canopy images on Bristol paper. I stamped them each with two colors of Distress Oxide inks; using a lighter color and then a darker one. First I just stamped the lighter ink and then directly after, I cleaned the stamp and then inked it with a darker color and sprayed it with water to achieve a watercolor look. Once this dried I stamped the sentiment and the little curved line image. I loved the frame that was included with the 'Framed' set and I die cut this image 3 times total, stacking them together and adhering this in place for framing the sentiment. This gave it a 3D look and it's really pretty in real life. I then took a piece of cheaper cardstock and rubbed it directly with the distress ink pad to create a matching layer behind the bristol panel. I adhered everything together at mounted it on some Neenah Desert Card stock. Thank you very much for hanging with me to read all of the (-:
