Thanks


Today's quick and easy card features four recently released Die-Versions dies: Bird, Curly Words "thanks", Curly Words "friends" (I cut off the "s" at the end of the word), and Curly Fries font (the letters that spell out "my"). The Curly Fries font was specifically designed to coordinate with the new Curly Words.

The background was created with Color Bursts (Lemon Yellow, Alizarin Crimson) and a small piece of canvas paper.  After allowing the paper to dry, the various dies were adhered to the background and framed with a basic shape.  A few seed beads and sequins were added and the two curly words were embellished with a Spectrum Noir Sparkle marker (clear).  It's really hard to capture the sparkle these markers give to an image, but in person you can easily see it. 

The card base was spritzed with Dylusions Ink Spray (Lemon Zest) to coordinate with the watercolors.

If you'd like to save 15% on your next Die-Versions purchase, add the code anne15 when you're getting ready to check out.  This code is good anytime for all everyday priced dies.  Hve fun looking at all those fabulous dies.

Your colorbursts looks amazing behind the white die cuts, Anne! Like you, I enjoy the SW dies to create frames. So pretty, especially with the dancing sequins keeping your little bird company! Hope you are enjoying a wonderful week, and not doing too much driving! hugs, de
