Couture Creations 2014 Design Team Audition.

Good Evening All,

Welcome to my Audition blog post for the Couture Creations Design Team.

I have a couple of projects that I have created using some of Couture Creations gorgeous Dies, and also some of their embossing folders coupled with some easy, but effective techniques.

So here we go....... I have long been a die junkie ( as my close scrappy friends know) but have been in awe of the Couture Creations dies that I have. They cut so amazingly well, and with such fine detail they are just beautiful.

The die cuts on this layout are simply cut from car stock in black and white. The Couture Creations dies left a very crisp finished edge on all the cuts.

Couture Creation Dies used: Celestial Doily Die- CO723220, Ivy Set Doily Die - CO723222, Heirlooms - CO723490.

I have cut all the die pieces out of black card stock for this layout but have used some silver building wax to highlight the embossing on the scallop circle and the Celestial die cut.

Couture Creations dies and embossing folders used: Celestial Doily Die - CO723220, Damaris - CO723477, Mimi - CO723476, Bossa - CO72501,  Large Damask Flourish - CO723449.

Couture Creations Die used: Tattered Lace Doily Die - CO723223.

I used the Couture Creations Embossing folder to emboss foil tape and then layered up washes of acrylic paint over it, then sanded it back to give this a weathered tin feel.

Couture creations dies and embossing folder used: Marant - CO723505, Mimi - CO723476, Large Damask Flourish - CO723449.

I do hope you like them, please stop by the Couture Creations Website to see the full range of beautiful dies and embossing folders that they have to offer. You won't be disappointed.
