I hope you have all had a good week? I can't believe that it is the end of July already!!! How quickly has the year gone by?
I'm just stopping by today to share with you another card and step-by-step tutorial I created for 13 Arts.
'For Someone Special'
Lot's of dimension!!
And here is the tutorial:
Step 1 and 2: Cut a piece of paper from the mental vacation Collection to fit the front of your card. Distress the edges and attach with double-sided tape, then use a palette knife to spread gesso over the front of your card.
Steps 3 and 4: Mix some Modelling Paste with Magic! Powder to create a nice thick paste that will crack when applied, then use your palette knife to spread the paste through your stencil/stencils. When the paste is dry add some random stamping with archival ink.
Steps 4 and 5: Now it is time to add color. I have mixed Pearl Turquoise light with a tiny bit of Vivid Violet paint to get this gorgeous Deep Blue. I have painted it onto my background in a roucgh diamond shape adding some of the Pearl Turquoise light on its own as well. Give everything a few sprays of water and let the colors run.
Steps 6 and 7: Add some Washi Tape and Cut your papers. Distress the edges and attach with foam tape and glue for added strength.
Steps 8 and 9: Tear a piece of Calico and add it to your layers then glue some Hemp Twine in a circle on top. Next I have covered a chipboard frame with Washi Tape and placed it on top before adding a flower and another circle of Jute Twine in Apricot. I have then added a few splashes of Pastel Salmon Mist to the background.
Steps 10 and 11: Add some more flowers brushed with Gesso, a resin clock, and metal leaf painted White. I have also decided to lighten up the edges of the card a little by rubbing some Gesso into it with my finger. I added some more paint flicks of the deep blue I mixed up for my background. Add some Light Grey Grit randomly to your card using Gel medium to hold it in place.
Step 12: Finish off by writing your sentiment on white card with a black pen, cutting it out and attaching firmly to your card. Then use your black pen to draw an outline on the Washi Tape chipboard frame and to draw a zigzag stitch around the edge of the card.
I hope you like my card and that you enjoyed my tutorial!!!
