Love Doves


It's Anja here. I'm still inspired by the wedding theme, that's way I have another wedding card for you today. This time I used Fancy Doves die and new Distress Oxides colors.

- Cottage Cutz Dies (Fancy Doves with Vine, Nested Stitched Scallop Oval Set, Love Phrase),
- Distress Oxides (Abandoned Coral, Twisted Citron, Antique Linen, Peeled Paint),
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock (for die cuts, 14,6x14,6 cm square),
- black pen,
- soft brush,
- Sizzix Impressions pad and Silicone Rubber,
- paper glue,
- foam adhesive pads.

First I cut a square from white card stock and embossed the largest oval from Nested Stitched Scallop Oval Set on it. I sprinkled a bunch of drops on the paper. I used Abandoned Coral mixed with water. I dried it with heat gun. I also cut a smaller oval from white card stock.


The I die cut all the pieces and colored them with Distress Oxides. I used a brush to color the vines. I wanted a softer touch of green and the brush is great for that. I cut two doves of each. Later I glued them together on one side (where the head is). 

When I had all the pieces colored I put the card together. I glued the smaller oval and the doves with adhesive foam pads. 

Have a nice week and see you again on Sunday.

Anja - I really like your embossing using dies and your splatter background. I've been meaning to try embossing like this and now I know it works with CottageCutz dies. - Janet

So pretty Anja- love how you have used the dies on this card- the distress inks and the background embossing make this quite a standout- creative work

So very pretty, Anja! I like the way you took created a "frame" for your oval panel by using the various pieces from the dove die. And the splatters on your background look very nice.
