Die'sire Classiques Dies In the Park

My design today features a sneak peek of a new release of
Die'sire Classiques - Spring / Summer Dies.

 The tree is from Die'sire Classiques - Spring/Summer Metal Dies - Four Seasons. It was cut from Kraft Cardstock using my eBosser.  I saved the negative cut of the tree to use a stencil.

I colored the tree with Spectrum Aqua Markers Chocolate. I used a combination of direct coloring and pallet coloring to achieve the shading. I edged the die cut with the Chocolate marker from the back - in case my hand slipped, it would be on the back. :)

To create color in the background of the scene, I used a waterbrush with Spectrum Aqua Markers Aquamarine, Moss, Topaz. I painted in a horizontal motion onto High Gloss Cardstock. NOTE: since I was not working on watercolor paper, I was careful that my waterbrush was just damp, and not too wet.

For the trees in the background, here's is where I used the negative cut as a stencil. I applied color with Distress Ink Pad vintage photo and a Sponge Dauber.

The lovely bench is also from the new release - Die'sire Classiques - Spring/Summer Metal Dies - Garden Bench cut from Shimmering Cardstock black pearl. TIPs: for cutting detailed, place a piece of wax paper in between the die and the cardstock. If your machine is not cutting out the design completely, use a piece of cardstock as a shim in between your plates.

Collall All Purpose Glue was perfect for adhering the tree and all it's branches. The sentiment is from Sentimentals EZMount Stamp Set - Love is all you need. For the shadow under the bench, I used a waterbrush with Spectrum Aqua Markers Slate. 

Crafter's Companion has had several new releases. For more ideas, be sure to pop over to the Crafter's Companion Information Blog, as well as visit the Crafter's Companion Education  and Inspiration Team members.

Shout out: I learned about the wax paper from Lori's post on Splitcoast.
