watercoloured chrysanthemum

I love stamping but I am also loving the new world I have discovered of dies and die cutting and all the different techniques that you can use them for.                                                                                                I cut this poppystamps delicate mum and had previously used it as a mask for a card I entered into the challenge at poppystamps , you can find it here if you want to check it out.                                                                                    
 I hadn't intended using the cut die after but I love how it dried and I love blues and purples too, so decided to make a card using it but it has taken me till now to decide how to use it.


I saw a card on pinterest that used a background die as a trellis so decided to make the front of my card quite open like a trellis or a window shutter using a background die from spellbinders. I added tiny rhinestones to the joints for a little extra interest and of course some sparkle.

I finished the edge of the trellis using some peel off left overs, they are the bits that were in between some peel-off decorative strips long since used.I laid the delicate mum across the front sticking to the trellis.

I really like the effect though I think when I use the card I will write on the back of the card as I think it will spoil the effect if you can see writing through the trellis effect.
