Thank You with Lovely as a Tree
T his week has been a week of working with reflections, i decided to play with shadows as well.
Cut all the card stock to size if not already done so and don't have one of my pre cut kits.
All measurements are in inches.
Card = 4.1/8" x 5.7/8".
Blue Panel = 4" x 5.3/4.
White Panel = 3.7/8" x 5.5/8".
Time to Stamp...
Stamp the main image at the piece of the cardstock as per normal.
Have a piece of acetate ready, Re-Ink your stamp and now stamp onto the acetate.
Turn the image over so the stamped image is now facing down towards the cardstock.
carefully place the image where it looks like a shadow toward the bottom of the card stock.
Hold the acetate firmly and gently press down on the image to transfer the image onto the cardstock.
If you wish to round the corners on your card, now is the time to use the corner punch and round the top corners on all 3 layers of cardstock.
Inking the picture give it a water cololur painting look so i used 3 different inks in this picture to give it a water colour painted look.
Using the sponge daubers dabbed in the chosen ink pad i started off the cardstock in small circles gently working onto the cardstock and across the page.
Start lightly and gradually add more colour as you go until you are happy with the picture.
Once the picture is complete and you are happy with it, it's time to dye cut the sentiment panel.
Using 2 different sized dyes from the Window Frames Collection, line them up on the right side to create the sentiment.
once lined up as per picture, run it through the Big Shot.
The middle panel can be turned over revealing the blank side to stamp the sentiment on and the outter edge can be put aside for a future project or thrown out.
Stamp your chosen sentiment and using sponge dauber gently colour the outter edge of the sentiment panel.
Now it's time to layer the card altogether.
This car has the coloured/background panel stuck on with Tombow glue, the top picture layer and sentiment are popped up by 3D Dots.
Finish with your choice of bling and maybe decorate the the envelope.
