Sizzix Inspiration | Forever by Jeanne Streiff

Hi! Jeanne Streiff here today with a card using new Sizzix dies from the Tim Holtz Alterations line.

I had some good messy fun prepping my papers for this project. These dies are so much fun to mix and match!

Instead of patterned paper I decided to watercolor. I used a heavy watercolor paper (140lb) for my background and my die cut shapes. It cut beautifully with the Sizziz Thinlits and Sizzix Bigz dies.

I created stencils with my Sizzix Big Shot and Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Mixed Media. I used a scrap of packaging that was about the weight of heavy cardstock with a shiny finish on one side.

Sponge all the edges with brown ink.  I added an outline with a fine black pen. I shaped the butterfly wings a bit before I assembled for some extra dimension. Assemble the card. Add pearls.

Have a great day!
