Hi and how did it get to be Friday already?! This week has been so mixed up! hoho holidays! I have a card that I started a few weeks ago…made a prototype first and then neglected to keep after it! It’s finished now though! yay and I like it!
The very background/back is Ranger Distress Oxide ink ink blended in 4 colors, Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick….can’t stop using these inks! haha New colors coming…can’t wait… SLS has them coming too…check her coming soon category…first one on the left.
Everything is cut from XL watercolor paper, colored with Ranger Distress Markers and a waterbrush. Marker colors I used are Wilted Violet, Picked Raspberry, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade. Very fun… I do like these markers for watercoloring…along with every other kind of medium! lol We’re doomed to own everything aren’t we?!
Here’s the dies I used to create the foliage and butterfly scene…
in the middle…
on the front top…
the largest butterfly from the Leavenworth Butterfly Trio
I’ve made this type of card before and just go off the top of my head…I’m bad about that. It will fold flat and fit in an A7 envelope. I am conscious of envelope size whenever I’m making something out of the ordinary though.
I die cut the rectangles, all the same size with the Memory Box Rectangle Basics Rectangle die set in three pieces of watercolor paper. ’bout can’t make a card without them! 😀 I did all the same size rectangle but you could easy do larger to smaller for a tunnel type card…I see your minds racing with ideas! lol
Then just score the ends and trim then to layer inside the front and back pieces, I did ¼ inch increments. Sides of the front and back are scored at ¾ inch.
Linking up to some challenges…
Great NEWS! Starlitstudio has the new release from Memory Box/poppystamps in stock and ready to ship! I know…it’s so exciting but how could it be time for Christmas in July already! hehe
Holler if you have any questions! So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed this little piece of Summer in a diorama.
