Last month I shared a layout made with the Pansy cut file from Pretty My Page. I had one extra pansy cut left over which I made in to a card...
I added some Shimmerz spray to the background, cut some wonky shapes to fill in the pansy and leaf apertures and stamped a greeting.
I nestled the pansy cluster on some tangled thread and embellished with sequins.
But I STILL was not done with that cut file. As I removed the cuts from my sticky mat I noticed that the negatives left behind were just as pretty as the positives. I used a piece of transfer tape to save the negatives to use on the background of another layout.
I started off my background with texture paste and the blossom stencil. (Psst, the stencil is currently in the sale!) I added water colour and more stencilling in layers until I liked what I had. I then added glue to the reverse of each piece on my transfer tape and applied them to the layout. Of course this would have been much easier to adhere if I wasn't trying to stick it over texture paste but hey ho, patience and all that!
I gathered a few bits from my Pink Fresh stash (LLP is my dealer!) and fiddled around until I liked the composition.
I added doodling around some of the texture paste areas for added colour and definition.
As textured backgrounds can be tricky to adhere things to I made sure nothing was moving with a few lines of zig zag stitching.
A now I'm finally done with this cut file. I love that it stretched so far! Right, what can I cut next?
