die cut, stencil and mask!

Hello dear friends!

Good morning! Sindhu here. Hope you are all doing well.

Today I have three cards to share with you that showcase one of my favorite Memory Box dies- 'Honey blossom Spring'.

Here is how it looks..

For the first card, I used the die cuts in a conventional way. Cut a couple of pretty die cuts, colored them and finished the card with a sentiment.

For the next card I used the negative of the die cut.Using it as a stencil, I sponged distress inks and stuck the panel on the card stock base.

For my last card, I masked a piece of white card stock with with the die cut, sponged distress ink all over it. Since I didn't like too much contrast of the white masked image on teal background, I  added the sponged die cut too to achieve a more tone on tone look. The white masked image peeking beneath the die cut looks pretty, doesn't it? :)

Hope I've inspired you enough to use your dies more than for just die cutting.
