Everything Eleanor New Home


Hi Folks.  A wet day here, best stay in and craft. 

I've made a card using a new technique to me.  I have to stay I didn't find this easy and it's not perfect but I'm pleased with it anyway.

I used a Bashful Blue card base with a Whisper White panel stamped with Everything Eleanor in Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue.  I stamped a second panel in the same way and to start with tried using my Timeless Type Alphabet Junior Sizzlits (retired) to cut out.  Didn't really work.  All back to front upside down etc.  So I re stamped another scrap.  Then separately cut out the letters in Whisper White then placed over the stamped scrap and re stamped onto the letters.  It means it doesn't match exactly and I'm sure there is a much easier way to do this.  

My colour combo was chosen so I could pop this into Dynamic Duos  - Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue. 

I'm also going to enter CASology this week which has a cue card - Word.  I'd been struggling to think what to do for the new home card that I needed but then I saw this and knew immediately I wanted to try out this technique.
