Finally done my homework!

I've been very slack with my homework for the Online Card Classes I'm taking...

There has been lots of amazing different ways to use your dies... I've downloaded the class PDF's but haven't had much time to try out lots of the techniques.

I did manage to try out a couple of them.


For this one, I used some watercolour paper and stamped the sentiment then die cut the daisy die from Simon Says Stamp.  I coloured it with watercolour paints and then inlaid it back into the sentiment.  

My next card uses edge dies

This card was inspired by one from Debby Hughes and one from Karolyn. I used a Pretty Pink Posh stitched edge die and cut stripes of colours and then stacked them together on an angle.  The sentiment is a Winnie & Walter die together with W&W stamps.

I've got lots of ideas for using my dies - now just to find time to put them into practise.
