I LOVE this die. So detailed that all you need to do is create a background and add the die cut. But then if you want do some colouring, then you can die cut the die using watercolour paper and watercolour the details. The coloured die cut will look gorgeous against the white background. You can create a shaker box out of the die by putting the die on a rectangle or circular frame. In short, it is a beautiful detailed versatile die. Must have in your collection 🙂
I created two different cards by creating my own background and adding the die cut. Here is the first!
On my second card, I wanted to create twilight sky where there is still sun on the horizon but night sky with stars starting to appear on the other side.
This time, I sponged distress inks. So I used Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserve, Milled Lavender, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch distress inks I went back and forth with the colours to get a good blend. Then I spattered large droplet of clean water. Followed by spray of clear shimmer. This gives a nice stary effect. Just beautiful in real!
