For my card today, I featuring the new dies called Background Builders.   You are seriously going to flip over these dies.  This set is filled with all kinds of landscape shapes like hills, roads, paths, trees, clouds, etc.  So.many.possibilities!  As you can see,  I paired the dies with one of the teeny house stamps in the Bitty Bungalows set to create a little scene:)  When I'm using standalone dies, I like to match the stamped images.  So you'll notice that I used the no line Copic technique to color my bungalow.  That way you don't get distracted by the hard black lines.   

Here's a close up on how I assembled the layers.  I even reverse cut some clouds to add one more layer!  If you're wondering, I colored all my die cut pieces with blended Distress Ink.  The color is softer and more uneven (in a good way) than just using straight colored paper.  So much fun to put together!  


Thanks so much for stopping in!  Now keep on hopping!   My good friend, Jocelyn, is up next!  I'm sure she's going to knock your socks off!

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj
