Allsorts 419 - Two or More Dies

Saturday already again and we have a new challenge for you at Allsorts. It's Tracy Mouse' week to host and she'd like to see two or more dies used on our projects. This should be an easy challenge, hope you'll join us for a chance to win!

I started out by inking up the middle portion of the card front using Wild Honey distress ink. The dark brown scallop circle was done using a Penny Black die, the white die cut was done using a Whimsy Stamps die and the bird die is also by Penny Black. The bird was inked using Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Wild Honey distress inks. The sketch was inspired by a card from a recent Penny Black catalog which are all available to view on their website. If you haven't looked at their catalogs recently, I warn you, look at your own risk, you might want everything you see!!

A few dimensionals were used to pop up the scallop circle. Sentiment is from the clear Penny Black set Sprinkles and Smiles stamped in chocolate chip ink by stampin up. Before adhering the card front to the base I paper pierced the borders. Both the card base and front are Solar Crest Linen, which gives the card a nice texture.

This card has been added to my Etsy shop if you're interested. (US shipping only.)
