Yes, I know I use Cottage Cutz dies a lot on my cards, but I really do like them. As a fan of punch art I find these dies perfect - I don't have to buy all the different punches to make them ! The problem is also the storage of the punches - dies are just so easy to store !
Starting from the background, I found the paper in my stash, the green leaves are from a Martha Stewart border punch called Branches and I used Distress inks Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint on them. The Cottage Cutz die - Hanging Monkey - was Distressed inked with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.
The sentiment was stamped with Archival Coffee ink and it is from the Kaszazz set called Express Yourself Occasions.
