Funky die cutting

 International Art & Soul, a challenge which has been put together to incorporate any type of craft, paper, wood, flowers, recycling, glass - the world is your oyster :).  Come on over an join us with you artwork :)

Challenge #15 - Layer it UP

OOOO layering is such fun especially with all the fabulous dies and die cuts around these days.  For the die cut I used Card 3 from Monica's Creative Room.  Monica is one of the most talented and generous electronic die cut creators, her dies are intricate but stunning.  For this card I started with a silver blank, the next layer was the white die cut which is almost the same as the black layer you can see in the card.  Next I used some hand made paper I collected on my travels and cut the flower shape.  The next layer is the black layer and then I added a lacy doily cut, this was a disaster as the hand made paper was not dense enough to cut properly.  In the end, to solve the problem, I glued the hand made paper to some regular 75gms copy paper and let it dry.  Cutting worked perfectly after that.  I cut the small doily out of black card and to finish off lots of glass gems.  The tag layers are hand cut and the Happy Birthday die is from Desire.
