I mean, just LOOK how wonderful!!
- Start out with 2 cut-down pieces of Solar White card stock.
- On each piece of white card stock, apply a soft layer of Distress Inks using the Picket Fence Blending Brushes. Start with Mustard Seed, then Twisted Citrone, and finally Broken China. Remember to apply a VERY soft layer...
- Next overlay one of the new Tim Holtz stencils on the papers and apply a darker coat of the Broken China and Twisted Citrone.. you will end up with BEAUTIFUL tone-on-tone designs across both pieces of paper.
- Next, use your Tim Holtz stamp platform to stamp the farm animals and their words on the back side of ONE of your stenciled papers. Wendy used Versafine Clair, Nocturne ink.
- On the other stenciled paper, die-cut the holes. Wendy created a nice guide for cutting out the circles.. She used the Hero Arts nesting circles and cut out the paper in 4 areas with 4 sizes of circles. The holes she cut out line up PERFECTLY to allow you to see the animals peeking through the holes!!
- I LOVE how clever this hinge is!!! To make the 2 pieces of paper fold like a card, she took 2 of the larger circles she cut out and adhered them to the 2 pieces of paper so one half of the circle is on the front of the card and the back half of the circle is on the back of the card...
- The 2 leftover circles Wendy cut apart to add interest to the INSIDE of the card!! HOW FUN!
- Start with a piece of light blue card stock. On the front of the card, use the clear, Versamark Ink to stamp the Round Sponge stamp image across the paper.
- Next, use the Versafine Clair ink, Twilight, to stamp the Seahorse image 3 times on the front of the card, it is ok if the seahorse images overlap the sponge images you just stamped.
- Now, apply Detail Clear embossing powder to the ENTIRE card front, shake off the excess, and heat-set using a heat-gun.
- Then, use the ALL NEW Dream Drops from Nuvo (Wendy used the green ones, Dragon Scales) and apply small drops along the edge of the Round Sponge images.
- Next, take the Tim Holtz Stencil, Gradient Circles and lay it around the edge of the card. Apply a small amount of Nuvo Expanding Mouse, Boatyard Blue using the new Silicone Media Spatulas. Heat-set the image using your Heat-gun and watch as the Expanding Mousse expands and raises with the heat!!!
- Start out with a coral-colored card base. Use the Nesting Oval die cuts from Hero Arts to cut out 2 sizes of ovals, one larger one out of Dark Coral card stock and one out of Ice Gold Stardream card stock that is a little bit smaller. Adhere the 2 ovals together using double-sided tape.
- Stamp the Llama image with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto the Ice Gold card stock. Use Detail Clear embossing powder and heat-set the image.
- Use Tombow Markers and a Waterbrush to colorize the Llama image.
- Use one of the filagree stamps to stamp a fun flower filagree in each corner of the front of the card base. Use Tombow markers and the Waterbrush to also colorize the little flowers
- Use pop-dots to adhere the oval to the front of the card base, centering it between all the filagree stamp images you did in the corners.
- Finish off the card by applying a few drops of Copper Crystal Drops to the crown of the Llama!
