Honey Bee Stamps Season to Sparkle Release: Shading Die Cuts with Distress Ink



 Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to day two of the Honey Bee Stamps Season to Sparkle Blog Hop! You should have arrived directly from the Honey Bee Stamps Blog

If you missed day one of the hop yesterday check that out too! Not only do you not want to miss out on all that amazing inspiration Honey Bee is generously giving away a $30 gift card for entries into yesterdays and today's blog hop! This release is so good you'll want the $30 guys :) 


If you frequent my blog you may be thinking this is very different from my usual style. Well it is and it isn't. The die cuts are but the coloring method isn't. 


Before I forced ,myself to learn copic coloring (to make good on that investment) I did all my coloring and shading with distress ink. ALL. OF. IT. 
I was so desperate to get dimension on my images I would have done anything lol. 
Thankfully the process of getting the job doe with ink blending is pretty quick. The same applies to die cuts! 


I cut all my images from the Winter Bouquet from Neenah Solar White Cardstock. Then I picked 3 color families to add some shading. Don't forget a dark shadow color or you'll struggle to get dimension!  


I layered them all together over a distress ink background and then added some spattered "snow" and glitter accents. The sentiment was heat embossed in white and cut with it's companion die. 


Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Carol Hintermeier

Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Since those early days of developing European beekeeping technique, we have only shifted the way in which we kill bees and their brood. We now kill them in open fields contaminated with pesticides. bee hives on your property
