Hello – a little crafty playing and I’ll like to show you the resulting card:
I had this panel which was a result of playing. Tissue paper, glued and scrunched onto card, Brushos and water, and I experimented with different colours to create what you see.
I rubbed gold over the creased side to catch the light and shine – shown better on the ‘veins’ in the second photo – and was just waiting for an idea in which to use it.
I then ‘found’ this die set in my stash when looking for something else (isn’t that what we all do?) and thought this would be fun to use.
I thought the corner die was best suited to a 5×7 inch card, so I cut a panel slightly smaller, and then used the die.
Onto the back of that panel I adhered the piece of tissue paper and colourful card and then adhered them both to a white card base with w3D foam tape.
The sentiment – and I played around with placement for ages – was also adhered with a little strip of 3D foam. This is a foiled sentiment from another playtime and foiling session a few weeks ago.
No gems, no sequins – just the colour behind the panel to showcase the effect of the technique.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
