Die Cut Colouring Idea - Bibi Cameron

Hello everyone, Simon Says Stamp launched "One of a Kind" products collection today! And I'm thrilled to share 2 easy and simple card making ideas using Floral Burst Collage Die.

The first idea is to recreate a colourful floral scene. Instead of randomly adding colour washes to the card background I selectively added colour to the die cut negative space trying to build a more defined image. 

And if you like to make your own envelopes there is another idea for you ! I love adding fun elements to envelopes, bags and boxes with dies.

How I do it!

Using the die I cut simultaneously 2 smooth white cardstock pieces (10.5 x 14 cm) on the big shot. I just put one on top of the other to guarantee perfect alignment and then I glued them together. .
I die cut a piece of printer paper using Floral Burst Collage Die to be used as a stencil on top of a scrap piece of Bristol Paper.
Then I stuck the paper stencil using washi tape on the Bristol paper and I carefully applied strokes of Nuvo Script Pens (yellow in the centre and pink and fuchsia at the edges of the die cut negative space) .
I removed the printer paper and I quickly blended and smoothed the colours using Nuvo Water brushes. 
I aligned the coloured piece of Bristol paper behind the front panel and I pasted using funky glue.
To finish I hand drew flower stems and I stamped some leaves from Roses For you Stamp Set. 
I made the envelope using the Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board and before assembling I die cut it with the die.

Key Tips:

Use the Bristol Paper Here when using watercolour pens. It makes all the difference.
Apply a stitched frame using a sewing machine or piercing tool as a fun decorative element. 
Multi stamp a sentiment using a stamping platform and 2 contrasting inks.

That's all! I hope you like this idea.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions or leave a comment I would love to hear from you.
