Dandy Garden Laser Cut Blending. As we approach the end of the January to June Mini Catalogue, I thought I should have a look at which products I have not given enough love to. I was stunned to realise that I have not use any of the Dandy Garden Laser Cut Paper. Time to put that right.
I am taking part in a Team Challenge that runs for a couple of weeks. One of the techniques we can use is Ink Blending, so I thought I would use one of the pieces from the Dandy Garden Laser Cut Paper as a mask. My aim was to have colours that reflect a sunrise or sunset. I am not sure I achieved that exactly, but I do like the final piece.
The finished piece was exactly the right size to use with one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies, so I used the next size up, with Melon Mambo card, for the mat beneath. The stitching adds just enough additional detail to lift the project. I used Melon Mambo Ink for the sentiment, from the Dragonfly Garden Stamps, and die cut that with another Stitched Rectangle. I was not totally happy with the size of the card for the sentiment. The stamping did not fill the whole piece, so I repositioned the die to make it shorter.
I added the matted piece to a Basic Black card base, which helps to make the colours ‘pop’. The final touch was to add Rhinestones around the sentiment and then to add one on the head of each of the dragonflies. This really takes the project from good to stunning. I hope you like it and will give this blending technique a go with any of the laser cut papers in your stash.
