Composing the Cards using Die-Cuts & Stencils by Halak Shah

Hello dear friends! ^__^
I'm Halak and today for my inspiration post, I have two projects to share with you using die-cuts.
Let's check out the first project.

This project showcases the Chloe Butterfly cutting die and the Rhapsody stencil, both by Memory Box along with the Happy Birthday stamp by So Suzy Stamps!

To color the butterfly, I've used the Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed distress inks.

Added a coat of sparkle to the butterfly and set it amidst a stenciled background using the same distress ink colors. (Tip : You can use Wink Of Stella (Clear) to do the same.)

Matted it onto red card base and added a couple of locally sourced rhinestones + sequins and some golden thread!

Here's project #2:

In this project I've used distress inks with stencils by The Crafters Workshop (Art Is) and Andy Skinner.
The die-cut used is Chloe Stem die by Memory Box.
In this die-cut I've used crackle accents instead of sparkle to give it a slightly different look.

The sentiment is by So Suzy Stamps stamp in black Archival Ink.

Finished it off with some ink splatters of Wilted Violet and mint colored enamel dots!

That brings us to and end of this post.
Hope you liked my projects and they inspired you to get crafty!

Till next time! *Hugs*
