Tutti Designs - Through the Ivy Gate

Happy Sunday Everyone!
Today it's my turn to share a new, inspirational creation using dies from the Tutti Designs Store.  Tutti has come out with so many amazing dies recently and today's I'm using a die from their October release called Garden Trellis #TUTTI-183.


I love creating 'scenery' card and I thought this 'Trellis' could also be used as a gate with a few little snips of the scissors.  Here's what I've created:


My background was created using Stampscape stamps and ink.
I love how this 'gate' opens onto the path.
Here's a few steps I took in creating today's card:

 First I colored the ivy on my trellis using various green Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.

Next I colored in my 'trellis' pieces using another alcohol marker of a different color.  I probably should have used a gray or black color but I remembered the flower trellis we had at home when I was growing up and it was never a dull dark color.  

My dad had a green thumb and not only were the flowers he grew beautiful but so were the containers or trellis they grew on.  He liked color and I guess I do too!


 Next came the 'snipping' to turn my trellis into a gate that opens.  Note the white dotted lines on my image ... that is where I made my cut then gently rolled the 'gate' back around a pencil to give it a bit of a curve.




Positioned my trellis gate onto my card front and VIOLA!


I've seen some of my team mates use their dies in 'different' ways 
so today I thought I'd give it a try too.  I must say, I'm very pleased with myself right now!  LOL
