Altered Dies #8

Hi Everyone! I hope you are enjoying your day. I am back with another altered die card. I altered two dies for this card to make a boat, clouds and waves.

For the boat I started with the Spellbinders labels 9 die and cut from wood grain patterned paper.

I cut the die in half to make my boat.

Next I used the Spellbinders Labels 20 die and cut from navy polka dot patterned paper.

I also cut these in half to make the waves. As I layered these on the card, some hung over the edges. I cut off the edges and used the left overs for clouds.

To make the waves and clouds stand out more, I inked the edges with Distress Faded Jeans ink. I also used Memento Rich Cocoa ink on the edges of the boat. These cute cats from Sparkle N Sprinkle fit perfectly in my boat! I used Elephant Gray and Amber Wheat flocking on the cats' spots. Sparkle N Sprinkle Brown Fizz embossing powder was used on the decorative border on the boat.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the altered die card today. I trust your day will be a wonderful one!

Cute way to stretch your dies. I like how you used patterned paper for these ones and I like the sponging applied to the waves. Very cute cats!
