Less is More OLC Je pense à toi

372 ThinkingOfYouIt’s a OLC at Less is More Challenge #327 which is always a bigger challenge for me.  I adore all my dies and just can’t help using them ALOT.  I used the ones in this photo,IMG_2760 I searched for the name and just couldn’t find it, so if anyone knows what they are called, please let me know in the comments so that other card makers can find them.  First, I made a stencil with the one on the right and temporarily adhered the die cut, as a mask, onto my card base.  Then I placed my homemade stencil over top and began ink blending with DOx inks in Fossilized Amber and Peacock Feathers.  I removed the stencil and the mask and then I used the left die to dry embossed over the area that was masked off.  This created a beautiful impression of the outline leaves, but since I hadn’t perfectly lined up the die where the die-cut mask had been, some of the outline showed some of my ink blending.  To camouflage the ink, I added liquid perfect pearls in silver pearl.  “Je pense à toi” (Thinking of You) was stamped with the same DOx inks and clear heat embossed.
