Stretch That Cut File!

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?
