I've been trying to come up with something different and creative for the 5th Challenge over at Virginia's View. A fun idea finally popped into my head, and just in the nick of time too!
You might remember the card I created here using Simon Says Stamp's Full Card Hexagons Die. It was showcased on the SSS blog in one of their "Spotted" posts awhile back. In that card, I used two of the Full Card Hexagons die-cuts to create an optical illusion of cubes.
So, I pulled out this fabulous die again last night, cut it out a few different times and just started to play. This is what I came up with.
I inked up the background with different shades of blues and greens, using Distress Inks, before adhering the layers of die-cuts. It was fun placing them down on top of each other to come up with that cool pattern. See the circle portion in the center? That's the third layer. I just cut off pieces of the die-cut to form the circle.
The sentiment was stamped and clear embossed on Vellum. It's from Hero Arts' clear sentiment set called, Friends.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope ya have a happy weekend! ♥
