Hidden Sentiment.

Hi there.  I've got a fun technique to share today.  It's a hidden sentiment.  Basically you die cut a sentiment from a patterned piece, even if it's a stamped piece, then added it back in with a little dimension

  
I stamped my Floral pattern with Altenew's Flower Arrangement. Lots of masking!  Despite completely messing up one of my flowers, the arrangement is quite forgiving.  I used a die from Catherine Pooler Designs to cut out the sentiment.  I cut the die several times from white card and layered for the dimension. 

This was for my NZ Crafty group swap and it is now with Suna.  

And today I spend some time working on my pencil colouring by starting a class from Kit and Clowder. 


I'm now working on the flowers.  I've used some watercolour card which has a bit too much tooth but my normal card stock is a bit smooth.  I'm enjoying the process but need LOTS of practice. 

thanks for stopping by
