A powerful image doesn’t need much embellishment. For this Inlaid Crosses die from the new Lucky To Know You release from Simon Says Stamp, I paired the die cut with a soft watercoloured background that drew the eye to the centrepiece.

SIMON SAYS STAMP LUCKY TO KNOW YOU RELEASE
As I mentioned, the Inlaid Crosses dies are part of a new release from Simon Says Stamp entitled Lucky To Know You. Here’s a closer look at the latest release.
SIMPLICITY SPEAKS VOLUMES
On Arches cold-pressed watercolour card I created a loose watercoloured wash using Daniel Smith paints. I worked the colours in an oval shape around a centre area. I kept mainly clear of colour to draw the eye to the die-cut. I splattered the panel with white gouache and a solution of Perfect Pearls.
I die cut one of the Inlaid Crosses dies from Ivory card three times and adhered one on top of the other for dimension. I then glued the dimensional die-cut to the watercoloured panel. I adhered the panel to an Ivory card base with foam adhesive.
For the sentiment, I stamped a greeting from the Clean Line Faith set from CZ Design in clear embossing ink on Black card and white heat embossed. I trimmed to a skinny banner and adhered with foam adhesive overlapping the die-cut.
Don’t forget to check out the rest of the Lucky To Know You release from Simon Says Stamp and I’ll be joining a blog hop on Saturday with more inspiration from the release. I hope you’ll come back and see me here then.
