This week's Mix-Ability challenge is to create a monochrome project. A few months ago I received a fun package of dies from an ebay store I've frequented for great deals on Quickutz dies - Creating Everlasting Memories. CEM has come out with their own line of steel wafer dies called My Treasured Kutz, and they sent me a few to test out. (Keep reading for a chance to win some)!
Here's the card I made using 2 of the sets:
I treated myself to some Hydrus watercolors for Christmas, and had a little fun playing with backgrounds to cut from - I tell ya, one drop of these paints goes such a long way! This background was done with a drop of the Sap Green and a drop of Payne's Gray along with some spritzed water... actually I got 2 backgrounds from those 2 drops!
Here's the ivy die, so you can see the format - all the elements are included on a single die. The dies are steel and made in China - they have quite a variety for their first release and more on the way.
Here's a closer look at the leaves and the Garden Trellis - I was pleasantly surprised at how well the Spellbinders Craft Tool N' One worked to clean out every one of those little chads while the cut was still in the die. The sentiment I used is from my new clear set, Maya.
Just for fun, I'd like to give a couple of these dies sets away! I have a Petite Grass Border die and the White Picket Fence set up for grabs - leave a comment by midnight EST Sunday for a chance to win! I'll announce the winner in my Monday post - I'll tuck in my ivy card as well!
(For size reference, the grass border is 5.5" wide.)
Hope you have a great weekend!
