Pixie's Crafty Workshop #355

There is a super card in The Playground this time around with three adorable little pigs so I really must enter the challenge this time to be in with a chance to be the lucky person drawn out of 'the hat'. There seem to be lots of 'paper-cut' style dies around nowadays and I've used one such die on my card for the challenge. The die was cut into a snippet of black card and I found another snippet to pop behind which had been coloured with distress inks and having cut it to size I enhanced the colours a bit by brushing over lightly with more blue and green.  This little scene was then backed with a snippet of white before mounting it onto a larger design paper snippet and a larger snippet of black slightly smaller than the card blank.  Finally the words were stamped onto a tiny scrap of white.

Landscape - Paper Cut style die unbranded
Background Paper - printed from Artylicious Essence of Nature
Sentiment - from a Stampin' Up stamp set


  1. A beautiful, tranquil scene, Val. The black silhouette is so striking against your lovely inky background. xx

  2. A fantastic little scene that you've created Val, I love the die.

  3. Fabulous card Val - as ever, so perfectly designed and made as well. I love tree silhouettes and, as you say, they're very much 'in vogue' right now. A great snippets buster as well of course :)

  4. Wow, this is so striking. I like the little scene you have created. Perfect using the black card to create the silhouette. Hugs Mrs.A.
