Here's another attempt for the challenge at CAS Mix Up to print using die cuts.
Congrats and many thanks again on your special celebration, it's quite a milestone!
Here I used some either Poppy Stamps or Memory Box leaf dies (not exactly sure which). I slopped a little Peeled Paint and |Forest Moss Distress Oxide Inks onto the cuts, and spritzed both the paper and the die cuts with water before taking a print.
The panel was cut with an MFT fishtail die, cut part way from both ends to make it rectangular rather than have the pennant shape. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.
