Faux Frame - Make a Wish Silhoutte Card
ombining the Faux Frame technique with the Silhouette Dies and Stamps makes great birthday cards for boys and girls.
Make as a set with the Girl on a Swing card to use the full tree silhouette.
8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Thick Whisper White Cardstock scored at 4 /14
4 x 5 1/4 Bermuda Bay Cardstock
5 x 3 3/4 Watercolor Paper
4 1/4 x 5 Basic Black Cardstock for tree
Preparing the Faux Frame Base:
Using washi tape or Painter's Tape, cover 1/2 inch in from all four sides. Make sure pressed down tight so water does not seep under.
Using the Aqua Painter, add water to the watercolor paper covering the exposed area completely.
Sprinkle a small amount of Pigment Sprinkles in the following order from the bottom to top:
Daffodil Delight; Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape. Less is more especially of the darker colors!
Using the aqua painter (without more water) or a paintbrush, spread the colors across the paper blending at the edges.
Let dry completely; use heat tool to dry quicker if desired.
Stamping and Die Cut:
Stamp the image with the plane or the telescope using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. You may need to go over with the Dark Black Stampin Blends to solidify image.
Cut out the Silhouette Tree in Basic Black and adhere sprigs the left side of the background. The ones cut from the Swing Card are used here. Be careful to only add adhesive within the confines of the frame. Trim off at the edge of the frame.
Punch out the 2 stars on the Twinkle builder punch and adhere at the right top corner of image in frame.
Stamp saying in the right bottom corner.
Stamp the inside saying.
Stamp the envelop with the branches from Rooted in Nature along the left lower edge.
Adhere the Bermuda Bay to the card base.
Adhere the Watercolor Paper to the card base. I used Tear & Tape as it is heavier than regular cardstock.
