Today we are featuring the Penny Black Iris die, which is so very beautiful and realistic. You can use it as a silhouette, you came colour it (watercolour is my favourite way) or you can use it as a stencil.
I'm sure there are more ways to use this die in a project. How would you use it, any ideas?
As I mentioned the other day, it is spring in my part of the world and that means the Irises are beginning to bloom - yay! Here is a picture of our garden from a previous Spring
Here is my first card...
The designer paper is from Bo Bunny - I love the colours and it is perfect for paper piecing.
I'm entering this card in the Moxie Fab World Metal, Cork and Wood Challenge.
My next one is simple, but classic...
I just love the white on white and my all time favourite colour scheme is black and white with a touch of colour.
I'm entering this card in the Colour Q #208
I was intending to do a watercolour card using the negative as a stencil and then water colouring the die cut, but it's been a very hectic few days looking at Nursing Homes and then negations.
We were offered a room yesterday and he moved in today, as the hospital wanted his bed.
So I feel relieved that it's all organised, but feel very sad because we are entering this new phase of life.
It's also difficult leaving him there with less care than he was getting in hospital, but we can only hope and pray that he doesn't have another fall and will settle in. It's a nice room with a lovely outlook, so hopefully he will at least find that comforting.
So, anyway, I'll have to do another card soon with a water-coloured iris.
