This week on the Cut it Up Challenge blog we are going Old School! Yup that's right, use an old technique or even something old from your stash and OF COURSE a die cut!
For my DT inspiration I dove into my stash of original Sizzix dies (remember the red ones??) and chose the pumpkins, because after all - HALLOWEEN is coming and as many of you know it's My FAVORITE holiday to design!
The background of this card is a stencil mono print with distress ink- using The Crafter's Workshop Stencil - I just love how this pattern reminds me of a jack o"lantern smile!
The pumpkins were die cut from grunge paper, run through my Xyron Creative Station and then covered with Spiced Marmalade and Peeled Paint (stems) Distress Glitter. The best thing about Distress glitter is it can be inked afterwards so I added a bit of Vintage Photo Distress ink to the edges. The pumpkin faces were colored with Black Soot distress ink and covered with clear embossing powder for a shine. A bit of yellow Stickles applied to the eyes for a glow.
So break old that OLD SCHOOL stash or even an old technique and join us this week for the Cut it Up Challenge!
