Sorry for the lack of action here. Have been commenting on blogs but no cards. Migraines made the week a hard one with only small periods of pain free time. Gone now till the next lot so I have lots of catching up to doooooooo.
This is a one layer card. The die cut was watercolour paper that I cut with the rectangle die that adds stitch marks on both the positive and the negative. It was a scrap that I had stamped and heat embossed this little cutie. A stamp from Lili of the Valley and I think my first little girl stamp.
I have watercoloured with Zigs and water, very quick piece and lots of colour. I then stamped the sentiment 'Merci beaucoup' which is the only French thing I could find in my massive collection of stamped images and sentiments.
I think she looks like she is offering a flower with a thank you to someone. Now you might notice that thin line of gold either side on the watercoloured image and that might lead you to believe it is another layer. Well its not... let me explain.
When I die cut the watercolour piece and the card base, I didnt notice until I had cut, the watercolour piece too short on one side so it was slightly too small to stick back together without a gap.
I got some gold tape I have that I attached under the watercolour piece then slotted the watercolour piece back into place with a very slight gold line each side. I also used a stitched die to add the line of stitches to the end of the watercolour piece.
Have I confused you...... I wont dare read to see if it makes sense. Just trust me it is inset and one layer and Im happy I was able to save it.
Thanks so much for coming to visit and I hope I see you again soon.
