Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a great day! Today I’m sharing an easy way to add color to die cut backgrounds.
All you need is some markers and some packing tape. I started by cutting the Waves Layer A die from white card stock. I applied packing tape to the back of the card stock before running it through my die cut machine. The packing tape prevents the die from cutting all the way through so you’re left with a clean white outline of the die.
I used five shades of blue to color the waves. You don’t have to be clean and stay in the lines. When you’re done coloring this panel will be topped with a second panel cut from white card stock.
I left some of the die cut pieces in place to add more interest. The Big Sugar Script sentiment is cut from gold glitter paper and white card stock. The solid background die helps keep the sentiment from fighting with the busy background pattern.
This technique will work with any of your background dies! I hope you give it a try. It’s a great way to add color and use your stacking dies in a different way.
