I'm really diggin' the Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations Bigz Dies, particularly the Tattered Florals. If you know me well, and know that I'm NOT a diecut person, you're probably rereading that sentence to make sure you read it correctly. I guess I like that the Tim Holtz diecuts are so versatile and alterable (not cheesy). I used the Tattered Florals for my Valentine Cards and thought it would be good for a hundred other projects. So, I had to experiment to see what I could come up with. Here's what I did:
I cut a set of diecuts out of Webster's Pages Wonderfall paper, vellum, and netting. I inked the edges of the paper diecuts, layered them all together, punched the center with the Big Bite, inserted a brad, and covered the brad up with a rhinestone.
I cut another set of diecuts out of corrugated paper. I then inked the edges with Distress Ink, and ran chalk ink over the grooves.
And, another flower perfect for a card. It would also be great on the front of a mini album, art journal, or even on a layout. Next I think I'm going to cut some out of transparencies…maybe alcohol ink them…or grungepaper…or a sheet of thin metal…oh yeah, lots of possibilities.
