Hi everybody. I have a more complex card...well, complex for me anyway, using this design I saw on Sam Calcott's Mixed Up Craft You Tube site here. Her waterfall card was for a new baby but mine is a birthday version made for a friend and using papers, an embossing folder, a stencil and a sentiment die that came from the latest Crafters Inspiration magazine called Timeless Florals. This is how it looks standing up.
I started by constructing each of the three pages of the waterfall. The outer one covered in one of the papers, the next using the embossing folder, inking the raised side by rubbing the Dusty Concord Distress Ink pad over it and then just putting the snippet of white card inside and pressing the folder together to transfer the ink. I then decided to line it up inside the folder and run it through to emboss it. I used Dusty Concord Distress Ink for this, and then I ink blended using this same ink and also Victorian Velvet DI. The third layer I stamped onto another snippet of white card and clear embossed the sentiment with the Dusty Concord and added some stencilling but with Spun Sugar DI because it is paler and I just wanted a little bit of colour in the background. I then matted and layered these three with snippets of blue on to the white background.
Here are the second and third layers so you can see what they look like.
...and a close up look at the stencilling on the sentiment layer.
I am entering the following challenges:
Snippets Playground Challenge - No. 450 Where we use our snippets of paper and card etc. This card used up lots of snippets of white and blue card and also some leftover bits of the patterned paper.
NBUS Challenge - No. 48 Where we use our Never Before Used Schtuff. Everything was having its first outing apart from the Clarity set which I have used before though not that particular frame.
Beautiful Blossoms Challenge - No. 3 Anything Goes with Flowers/Florals.
Triple B March Challenge - Birds, Blooms and/or Butterflies (any one, two or all three).
The Flower Challenge - No. 78 Die Cuts or Stencils.
