"I love the elegance of a black, white and one other colour card. I didn't want the background image to overpower the rest of the card, so without mounting it on an acrylic block, I simply inked up a part of it and rolled it onto the card front. The result is subtle, with no harsh edges."

"I looked around for something to build a little fairy house with, and came up with this tiny little tin. Mine had tomato paste in it, but any tin would do (eg baby food). The roof was made by cutting a slit in a circle, then overlapping one side over the other. I embossed it with one of the new 3D M-Bossabilities folders - I'm amazed at the detail! The door is a Labels Twenty Eight die cut with a brad for the door knob and embossed to look like woodgrain."

"Playing around with acryclic paints, and I came up with this faux copper effect. It turns out so realistic, people will have trouble believing that it's just paint and cardstock!"


Products Used:

Bazzill Basics Cardstock:

9-960D Kraft
7-7116E Simon
10-1037E Blackbird

Spellbinders:

E3D-003 Delightful Daisies

JustRite Stamps:

CR-03885 Grand Sentiments

Other Materials Used:

Blue and Copper acrylic paint
Tsukineko Java Walnut Stain
Black German Glass Glitter

Step 1

Emboss two pieces of cardstock using the new 3D M-Bossabilities Delightful Daisies folder. Fussy cut two daisies, one butterfly and the banner from one piece.



Step 2

Paint all of the pieces with the blue acrylic paint, covering all of the kraft cardstock.



Step 3

Once dry, paint a very light coat of copper paint. This can be left streaky to show some of the blue paint underneath. While it's still wet, wipe over it with a damp paper towel. Allow to dry.



Step 4

Spray lightly with the Walnut ink, and wipe all over the embossed pieces with a dry paper towel. Flick some water droplets onto the piece and watch the water clear spots in the walnut ink layer. (Pic 3 below): See the difference the Walnut Ink has made to the paint finish. It's like a patina.




Step 5

Stamp the sentiment onto the banner. Assemble the card, adding some black German glass glitter to the flower centres.
