Seasonal Thinlits

Good Day & Welcome to my blog of craftiness 

Today I want to share a background I accidentally made when die cutting a heap of branches for an upcoming swap. I was trying to conserve my card stock on each turn I was turning the die upside down.

Anyways this happened......

 

I also thought when I was doing the cuts on my Big Shot that the little branches looked like Ents - the ancient trees from Lord of Rings (love fellow Kiwi Peter Jackson and all his amazing films!)
 
The Seasonal Layers Thinlits is part of the Colourful Seasons bundle and has nature inspired images covering all four seasons. For this card I have only used 1 of the 17 dies - the tree branch. Vellum, Crumb Cake, Whisper White and Berry Burst card stock were used along with gold embossing powder for the sentiment "just breathe"



I heat embossed the Calla Lillies image from the Remarkable You stamp set in White Embossing Powder and water coloured the flowers with Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist inks. A gold doily to match the heat embossed sentiment and then a Delicate Details doily underneath.
 
Hope I have inspired you to get into your crafting space today and perhaps you too will have a happy accident like mine x
