I placed the vase dies on patterned paper. I positioned it where I thought the paper pattern would look nice on the vase. I taped it on the paper to prevent it from moving. I also used a very light grey Copic marker to add some shading on the left side of the vases. The swirl is the window of a diecut with paper behind it.
Here is the inspiration taken from Case Study #185
I took a black scratch paper and colored it with gold Wink of gold and put it behind the swirl die cut.
Wish me luck in winning a designer guest spot for Paper Smooches.
