Hello with Pinkfresh Studio

I've had this gorgeous Hello die from Pinkfresh Studio for a while now, and decided it really needed to get used.  Normally with dies like this, I'll do an inlay, and I'm definitely planning to do that at some point, but I was in a less fussy mood, and decided to do a bit of a twist on inlay.

I started by cutting a panel of the white and gold print from Pinkfresh's Escape the Ordinary 12 x 12 collection pack.  Then I die cut the hello from the panel, setting aside the actual die cut because I only wanted to use the negative space.  The leaf print was adhered to a plum/purple print from Pinkfresh's Indigo Hills 2 6 x 6 paper pad.  

The hello was then die cut from a piece of white cardstock and inlaid into the negative space in the gold print.  I also inlaid the letters so that the sentiment stood out more.  Note that when I inlaid the delicate die cut piece, I wasn't particularly careful about having it fully inlaid.  I left the edges without a ton of adhesive so some of the ends stand up a bit from the card creating some extra dimension.

For some additional dimension and texture, I added clear Nuvo drops in the centers of the flowers, and also used a clear Wink of Stella pen to add some sparkle to the letters in the sentiment.  It's hard to see in the photo, but adds just the right touch in person.

I trimmed the panel down just a touch height wise, so you can see just a sliver of the base beneath the panel, and popped the entire panel up with foam tape.

That's all for me today.  Hope you are having a great week.  It's finally warming up here, maybe too warm, it's supposed to be 87 today!
