Easy Die Cutting Techniques

Another chapter in my classes today.

I'm doing some Easy Die Cutting today which I would call 'floating die cut.  The concept is similar 
to inlaid die cutting but I actually pop the top layer over the image layer. 

Die cut image from cover layer
Lay stamp in the negative space

Now I stamp the image on paper in preparation of coloring with alcohol markers.

 I used tones of yellows and greens for this image.  

You can see the top layer floats over the base layer which adds dimension.  

To finish the card off I added splatters of metallic ink spray and some scattered sequins.

Thanks for stopping at my blog today.
