Negative Die Cut Star Fish

Hi friends! Happy Thursday! As always, I’m happy to welcome back very special guest Yana Smakula to our blog today! She’s thinking outside the box by using a die from the coordinating die set, Set Sail, to make a custom background!! She used some of her favorite Tim Holtz distress ink colors and a blending tool to get that nice sunset color combo. Love the shimmer you see? Yana used Sparkle embossing powder to get the look! She finished the card off with a die cut sentiment from Summer Greetings using Orange Peel and Sunshine cardstock! Be sure to watch the video to learn more! Enjoy!
