It's late in the day, but I decided I couldn't wait until Monday to share this card. First, there is a little history......I saw a card that someone had made using this Lucienne Tile Border and I thought the design was just beautiful! So I headed to the Internet to purchase one. Site after site was sold out but then I found one on Amazon.com and it was the last one they had. I purchased, paid and was so excited. A few days later I got a refund for the full amount. Evidently their inventory was not accurate!!! I was so disappointed.
The first place I had looked was eBay but the only thing I found there was someone who was selling the die cuts. I decided to go back to eBay and there was ONE but it was in England. Thankfully she had a Buy It Now price on it so I jumped!!! We had quite a time getting the payment taken care of, but the seller was superb and patient. Today the die arrived and I had to try it immediately!
My yesterday's post mentioned that I had done some other background designs using Alcohol Inks. The one on this card was going to be thrown away yesterday but it was still on my table. The overall look was not good but when I put the white layer on top of the glossy paper it was beautiful with the part that shown through the die cut and just the edges.
I then cut a sprig of flowers with a second Memory Box die. After I adhered it to the front of the card, I took sections of the leftover inked background and cut individual flowers. The yellow flowers appear more orange than they are but I couldn't get a picture that satisfied me. This die is one of my favorites and I know I'll be using it a lot more.
Since you took a moment to stop by my blog today, won't you tell me what you think? I always appreciate your comments!!! Have a great weekend!
