Here is my take on the
Sketch & Dare Challenge...

"Love Struck"
 Handmade Card to share with you all.

I used the following Die~Namites Dies!!

Love Arrangement

(This die I cut apart and only used the cherub with arrow....see photos below.)

Love Struck

Here is a collage of photos of how I colored my Die~Namites Dies.

Simple Steps

Step 1. Die cut out of white card stock.

Step 2. Color the die cut pieces with your favorite 
I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, I used a paint brush to give 
me more control where the color went on the die piece.

Step 3. Make sure you dry the die cut piece in between each color.

Step 4. Have fun with your dies (see last photo) I decided I only wanted 
the cherub with arrow and not the I simple cut the die cut piece apart.

Here are close ups of the steps I just shared.

"the vines peeking out" 

Tip & Technique

I am sharing with you here in this collage photo...
I took Petaloo flowers and cut them apart, inked the ivory flower
up to match the color tones of the card.
As well as cutting it apart to snuggle around the red flower...
this gave depth and color tones to help balance the card out.

Lastly here is one more collage photo 
to gaze upon how pretty and how easy it is to use your Die~Namites Dies 
in your crafty it is cards, scrapbook layouts,
altered art...etc. The Die~Namites Dies can go a long way...

Thanks for stopping by today,
Big Hugs
Peggy Lee
