Slimline in Blues

Blue & White Winter & COLORFUL OPTIONS CHALLENGE BLOG



When I found and used one of the small Asian style dies the other day, another idea come into my head. I had a slimline piece already die cut using an MFT triple stitched circle die and I tested to see whether the small fancy circles would fit into it. As you can see, they fit beautifully so I layered the circle aperture piece onto some pale blue mirrored card and then paper pieced the fancy circles into it. To hide the marks the die left behind I used some white border strips that a good friend cut for me a long time ago. To me this gave the look of some snow. Prior to adding the fancy pieces I also used a tiny strip of white glitter and wove it between the openings of the die cut. Then with all the die cutting I did earlier with the border die that didn’t quite work, I used the fallouts to decorate and embellish. Some I coloured and some I left white. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment which is also from MFT. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. Whether it is wintery enough I don’t know but it is certainly cool (as in cold) looking.
