Camouflaged Die Cut

The challenge at Papertrey Ink this week is to use a camouflaged die cut.  Laura Bassen has a video and great card showing the technique.

Sue McRae PTI Camouflage Challenge

I started by inking up my panel with Distress Ink in Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade and then spritzing it a few times with Perfect Pearls.  The leaf was die cut once out of the panel and 4 times out of white card stock and adhered together for one thick piece that was fitted back into the negative space.

I think my leaf piece is a bit too camouflaged. I should have stopped my inking sooner so that the leaf would have had some white showing.  Perhaps a redo is in order!

I'm also entering this for Virginia's View Challenge, All Things Distressed.



Thanks for visiting with me today!

  5. Sue, your leaves are just perfect! I think the other way would just give it a different look, not any better, just different. Would love to try your idea of spritzing with perfect pearls!
