(2019 c73) Tim Holtz Inlaid Garden


Ok today I am following my inlaid card design from August 14 2019 (2019c70) Tim Holtz & Color Burst.  You can see how I creatd it on that post if you want the details.

But on today’s card I added 2 more die cut flowers and cut them out of the base that had the 2 pink and deep blue flowers already cut and inlaid. I first did the purple holly hock in the left central position and last I cut & inlaid  the yellow flower so that it looks like it is closest to the viewer.  The paper is FLAT and SMOOTH. Truely it is a one thickness of watercolor paper.  I really love this, but in the future I will choose dies with less tiny stems and petals, pretty hard to keep all the tiny bits from flying away especially when you get to the last inlay because you are also cutting the previously cut flower underneath!  (Makes me think of corralling cats – not an easy thing to do)

    Beautiful garden scene.

  3. Lagene, I can really appreciate the work that went into this card, and I think your inlay work is brilliant! The end result is quite beautiful! I’m so happy you pulled out this technique again–it is well worth a repeat! Both of your cards are stunning! Thank you so much for playing along in our Let’s Do It Again challenge at The Funkie Junkie Boutique blog! Hugs! Sara Emily

    That is such a cool technique and the resulting flat surface makes it perfect for mailing without incurring extra postage, which is always a problem for me. Love the bright colours and the sparkle. Thanks for joining us at The Funkie Junkie Boutique Blog.

    Wow… beautiful and must have taken a lot of time… awesome!
