…when I see your light it stains my soul with colour

Sharing a card that features the lovely Romantic Bouquet die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

I made this card using the stained-glass effect Jennifer McGuire featured a little while ago on her blog.  If you’re ever looking for inspiration or just want to see some pretty amazing cards you really need to go check out her blog, she posts loads of useful tutorials and has other resources all generously provided for free.

Over at The Crafter’s Café they want you to make your own background and use dies and/or punches.  I’ve made two backgrounds here, one was the colour for the stained-glass, well I guess that’s a background.  I used an embossing mat to give myself an outline of the die shapes to work with and then coloured them with alcohol inks.  I also used alcohol ink to get the mat I placed the die cut panel onto a similar colour to my embossed top layer, creating my second background.  I’ve also used a die as my main feature on the card.

The die is so lovely and using the stained-glass technique in the soft pinks gives a really feminine feel to my card.  As I’ve also got a sentiment, thanks to the fab chippie from Make it Crafty, I’m entering my card at Aud Sentiments.

Flowers are the current theme at Dies R Us and, as mine are die cut ones, I am linking my card up in their current challenge.
