Wplus9 - Background die-cut

Hello Everyone, I was experimenting with Wplus9 dies, creating a background die-cut from it. In this project I used the "rug" die from Wplus9 Smart Kitty Coordinating dies to create my background panel for my card. Of course there are tons for dies we could use for this type of project :)





To begin my card I first die-cut the A2 panel with "rug" die from Smart Kitty Coordinating dies. Then I used the scallop stitched from Sunshine Layers die to add a design on the die-cut panel.



Next, I distressed the white cardstock card base with Wplus9 ink pad in Beanstalk dye ink, Little Piggy, and Miami Spice to create a colored background. Then I added some splatters using the New Silver Lining Spray Mist, I added a tad of water on the acrylic block to dilute some of the colors to make it a tad lighter, and use my paint brush tool to splatter on the front of the card.


The sentiment I used was also from the Smart Kitty stamp set, I white embossed it on a black cardstock, then adhered on the panel with foam tape for dimension.




Next, I watercolored the kitty, rose, stem/leaves, and books, and die-cut each one with its coordinating dies and adhered on the card with foam tape. Then,  I added some PPP Sparkling Clear 8mm sequins to finish off the card.



I hope you guys enjoyed!

Have a WONDERFUL Week
Thank you so much for stopping by :)
