Stencilled Blossoms & Diamond Frames

Playing with the Altenew Hill Blossoms stencil & Fine Frame Diamond dies and the Spellbinder All the Stars stencil.

I've done it in 3 different colour combinations, and used different techniques with the dies ...

  • as an embossing folder, 
  • as a panel and 
  • as a frame.

I started with my favourite colour - blue of course! The die was used as an embossing folder using the rubber mat, then I masked it and distressed around the edges to give some depth. 

My second has turquoise flowers. Kept the die cuts together to create a panel. The flowers didn't flow as I wanted, so I cut off the top 2 and tucked them behind the panel.

Third option I really wanted to use the Altenew Sugarplum and Nature's Wonder Ink sets. I used just one of the frame dies and inked it with the same ink so that it would match the flowers.
