Some time ago I was faced with a challenge. The new release brought beautiful die-cuts, but I don't think I've ever been a fan of this type of work. I always thought I couldn't put together a composition, couldn't get the colors right. With markers I was going much easier. However, this time I was tempted and gave it a try. It turned out that the new layered "Luna" die-cuts from Crafty Meraki are a wonderful solution.
They give a lot of possibilities and can be combined in many ways. I, of course, was tempted to combine them with stamps from earlier releases. It was necessary for me to give something else from myself. And it is the stamps that are such "my" part of cardmaking. I think all of these supplies fit together fantastically and make great artwork.
The idea that popped into my head for this card was based largely on contrast. I wanted to use the rainbow theme and the sharp cut-off with black to accurately show the wonderful openwork patterns on the wings of the butterflies. To make the butterflies, I prepared a sheet of paper on which I applied oxide inks arranged in a rainbow pattern. I then die-cut the base parts from them. The next step was to punch out the black parts and clean them up. After combining the base and openwork parts, I added some accents with white gel pen. I also added a bit of gold, as it perfectly matched the colors of the rainbow and the black.
I colored the stamps with alcohol markers, as always. At the very end, I placed some glitter sequins on the card and finished it off. How do you like such a contrasting card?
I hope I have inspired you to prepare more works, perhaps with these beautiful "Luna" die-cuts?
I wish you a lot of creativity
