Today’s tutorial was a technique challenge recently. Joan Ervin, one of our Technique challenge hostesses, was kind enough to write the photo tutorial for Splitcoast. I had fun creating this sample for the video tutorial.
The frame from Taylored Expressions New Beginnings was stamped in Walnut Stain Distress ink twice on Solar White cardstock. I cut it once by hand, once with Taylored Dies – Frame it Up 1. A sentiment from the same set was stamped also in Walnut Stain ink in the center of the hand cut frame. The edge of that frame was paper pierced and adhered to the bigger frame with dimensionals.
A butterfly was stamped in Tumbled Glass ink on the light blue Springtime paper, cut out and adhered to the sentiment panel with dimensionals and Scor-Tape. Three Recollection silver pearls were adhered to the body of the butterfly. The wings were covered in Stardust Stickles.
The rose image is also from New Beginnings. It was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink and was colored with Copic Markers (RV10, RV13, RV14, RV17). A branch is from TE’s Friendship Blooms stamp set. It was stamped in Shabby Shutters ink, cut with the Leafy Branch Taylored Die and adhered partially under the smaller frame. The rose was adhered over the branch.
For the Bargello background I used Echo Park Springtime and Little Girl papers. It was down to 4″ x 5 1/4″ and the lower corners were rounded. White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the middle before the layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Solar White cardstock, folded in half. Again the lower corners were corner rounded. Silver Recollection Pearls on the top left of the Bargello layer finish off the card.
Did you notice that I didn’t sew on this card? I wish I had. I think it’s missing the sewn edge. LOL
Here is a video for the visual learner:
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
