SHOPPING OUR STASH #443 - Plant Life


Happy Tuesday and welcome crafty friends!
We have a new challenge starting today at SHOPPING OUR STASH:
Plant Life. We are looking for all things leafy!
I uncovered a die that I bought last year, and it's the first time using it:

My leafy panel was created by sprinkling three colors of Magenta Nuance
powder dyes onto mixed media paper that I taped down. Then I just
spritzed water over it, letting the colors blend and do their thing.
It looks like a hot mess, but once you die cut it, it becomes 
this gorgeous green border!

Before gluing it down, I placed it onto my card base, and lined up
the sentiment stamp inside my MISTI, removed the border, stamped
and heat embossed the sentiment in gold, then adhered the border.
Super simple! The hardest part was leaving the inked panel alone to dry naturally. LOL!

I hope you'll join the SOS Crew and link up your leafy project at
Shopping Our Stash! We'd love to see what you come up with.
Need more ideas? Simply check out the blogs of my teammies to
see what they created!

Thanks for visiting. Have a great day!
