Seasonal Silouette Cameo Love

My fondness for using certain tools seems to wax and wane depending on the season. Since the sun started shining more brightly, I have been using my Silhouette Cameo to create unique die-cuts. I thought about my Momma a lot while designing this card — though I need to find a better technique for applying Delicata ink to the edges of white card stock, I think the spinning circle makes the card happy and charming, just like my mom.

This next card uses an image from Two Peas, which I edited somewhat so that the size and image ratio made more sense for my white card base. I cut the “Love” image out on water color paper twice. At first I colored directly on one of the diecuts and then spritzed it. The color was quite deep and dense; it was quite lovely but I was looking for something lighter and less precise. I colored the markers directly on my craft mat until a little bit of ink pooled, spritzed the mat with water four times, and then carefully dipped and dabbed the second diecut. The flower is from a Martha Stewart sticker pack — I love her flower stickers. IMG_0011 2

I love using the Delicata gold ink to edge the cardstock!
