Cheery Lynn's challenge this week is a shaped card. I used a Sue Wilson die set for the shape of the card. I love it because the outside die can be used to cut the card shape. I folded a piece of card stock and ran it through the Big Shot stopping short so the back and front are connected. For the outside panel I used lavender card using the outside cutting die and the the decorative die. I left the lavender card in the die and added a piece water color paper that I created with Tim Holtz distress inks and sprayed with Perfect Pearls pewter mist which gave it some shine. I cut and embossed both the water colored layer and the lavender card which gives the water color paper more dimension behind the card stock. The picture does not show the pretty background very well. The iris is a Heartfelt stamp that I stamped three times colored with Spectrum Noir markers and layered different parts. I added some flower soft to the middle and on some of the petals for extra texture. I topped the card with a hugs die from Cheery Lynn. The pretty easel is a gift from a special friend.
