A Peachy Hop!

I am SO excited about the new dies I designed for CottageCutz! These are some of my most favorite designs and seeing them in a whole new way has been a truly rewarding experience. A whole new realm of paper crafting awaits you (and me!) as you use our designs in your die machines! For my card, I used the Happy Bird. The face cuts, however, the cuts are not thick enough to see a piece of black cardstock behind them. So, to get the detail, I used Americana acrylic paint (Mississippi Mud) with a liner brush, but a thin Micron pen would work just as well and give you the same effect! I colored her originally in with Copics, and dotted acrylic paint for dimension. I used the original stamp set for the sentiment. The original was very pale so I went back and painted her in acrylics. So much more vibrant!!

Don't forget to check out all of the other designer's blogs for even more inspiration! Prizes at every stop!
