November Leading Lady Alice Wertz | Take One

As it is the first Saturday in November, we have the pleasure of the dazzling debut of our November Leading Lady Alice Wertz!  I have been an admirer of Alice's work for several years.  Her coloring skills, artistry and ability to create vignettes are phenomenal.      

I am really excited to see what Alice will be creating this month as she takes us on an adventure of her own design on Saturdays in November on the w&w blog.

Please give Alice a big round of applause to welcome her as she steps onto the stage for her first performance as our November Leading Lady!

Happy weekend, all! =) I am thrilled to be the November Leading Lady for Winnie & Walter! It's such an honor and I have been having a lot of fun with some super cool products!


For my first project as the Leading Lady, I am sharing my love for texture and dimension.



I love adding textures with tone-on-tone die cuts for backgrounds on my cards. I know this process could take time sometimes, but it's well worth it! =) The background is created using two layers of In a Word: Birthday Tiles Cutaways cutouts. I usually use a negative of the cutouts as a guide when I glue them down.


The sentiment is cut using In a Word: Celebrate Cutaway and colored in rainbow colors with Copic markers.

This is probably one of my most favorite ways to create a clean background and I hope you find it worth trying!

Thanks so much for stopping by! =)

supplies:
cardstock: (white) Papertrey Ink
color medium: Copic markers
accents: sequins
dies: (In a Word: Celebrate Cutaway, In a Word: Brithday Tiles Cutaways) Winnie & Walter

  1. I've used die cuts for a "faux embossed" background, but never stacked for dimension. Love the look of this card, Alice--thanks for the inspiration!
