New Seven Hills Blog Challenge

We've launched the new blog for my store today with our first monthly craft challenge for 2016 ahead of the new store opening tomorrow (fingers crossed)

All you have to do is make a project on ANY theme, using AT LEAST 3 colours from ONE of the 3 colour palettes below and there is a £15 prize for the winning project.

For my project I was totally inspired by this card by Laura Bassen.   I loved the "innie and outie" die cutting technique as it adds lots of interest really easily!

I started with a panel of 300gsm card stock and did some ink blending (not as well as Ms Bassen unfortunately but ink blending is her super power!) using shades of blue and green distress inks.  I then die cut them using some nested star dies.  The panel "waste" was then adhered to the base card and you just work to the middle adding foam behind alternate stars.

The sentiment panel was die cut from glitter card using an MFT accent it celebration die set and was popped up on foam to add to the dimension.

It's a really fun technique so I will be looking for other nested shapes to play with!

Hope you're inspired to come and play along with us.
