We're cutting up over at CASology this week, so grab your dies, die cutting machines, scissors, X-acto knives, or whatever your crafty cutting weapon of choice is and join us!
When I really want to make an impact, I reach for black. Black and white, black and pops of bright colors, monochromatic shades of black and gray...real eye-catchers!
When I saw the die STAMPlorations sent to me for this challenge, I knew it was gonna be a negative space kinda day lol. I really wanted to highlight how "wonderful" and bold this font cuts. I watercolored the sentiment using the Inktense Blocks I reviewed weeks ago here and on my YouTube channel.
Tip: Sketch a super light pencil line to mark the word and borders of the negative to make sure you color the letters completely and with different colors. It also prevents coloring outside of the edges. If you're using watercolor, the pencil will not erase afterwards, so use a really light hand.
The rest of the DT is "die"ing to show you their inspirations! And certainly don't forget our guestie and fab sponsor.
