Hi there, it's Laura from Make Life Lovely!  Today I've got a fun and easy unique art hanging to share with you, made from the new Amore Thinlits Plus Die Set.

I love how intricate and detailed this beautiful die is.

I knew it would like so pretty turned into a piece of art with pretty colors in the background and a piece of paper cut from the die going over the top, so that's just what i did!

First, I made a Sizzix sandwich with my Big Shot Plus Platform, Big Shot Plus Adapter A, a Plus Cutting Pad, a black sheet of paper, the Amore die, and the other Plus Cutting Pad.

I rolled it all through my Big Shot Plus, and ended up with this perfectly cut design.  Isn't it pretty?

Next I took a piece of white cardstock and just added different colors of water color paint all over the page.  I tried not to think about it too much, just to paint and add color.  I let it all dry.

One the paint was dry I added some glue to the back of my black paper design, and placed the cut sheet right over my painting.

Now all the pretty colors pop with the black over the top, and I have a pretty piece of artwork that just took a few minutes to make!

This would be a great activity to do with kids.  They could even paint on a canvas with the die glued over the top too.  The possibilities are endless!

I hope you enjoyed this project!

Happy holidays!

XO, Laura
