Its called "In focus" and the first one is highlighting the inlaid die cutting technique.
I have tried before and love this technique for creating a different look.
As you can see I got carried away and made two cards lol.
I first made this card and wasn't going to have any stamping but once i had coloured the masked section with my distress inks i though some gold accents would look good so stamped in gold one of the images from In Bloom Lola's Bouquet.
Then finished with some twine and gold pretty pink posh sequins.
A close up.
For my next card i wanted to change it up a bit.
The "friend" die cut is still partly inlaid, I used another one that had also been masked so there is a big contrast.
The plus side is i have another spare die cut :)
I stamped the true from the true stamp set and some silver sparkles from my precious stamp set.
I finished with some silver glitter washi tape, enamel dots and rhinestones.
You still have 17 days to join in with this on the Winnie and Walter blog :)
Thanks for looking.
