Waves and Wishes
Hello to you. I hope you all had a good weekend. It certainly was hot here in Southern Ontario!
For today’s Random Act of Cardness I thought I would do cards with dimensional sentiments. For this technique we use dies and build the sentiment up from the card base. You can use any colour you wish for your die inserts, but in the case of the above card I used white.
The bottom layer is navy, as is the card base, then 2 layers of 110lb white card stock and finally the designer paper layer. In the picture below you can see the build of the dies.
For my next card I again used white for the build, but also included a black die cut and the top layer is a partially stamped layer of the white card stamped with the Aster in black ink.
First I stamped 3 of the Aster flowers on my card base using Memento ink. On another piece of white card I stamped 4 more flowers, the leaves and the butterfly, and proceeded to colour all but one of the medium flowers using Copic markers.
I colour from darkest colour to lightest colour. So in the case of the pink flowers, I started with the RV25 and ended with the RV13. The same applies to the green. For the butterfly I coloured with the yellow, then on parts went over the yellow with the RV25.
Once the colouring was complete I die cut the pieces with the coordinating dies, then arranged them on my card and attached using foam squares. I added in the sentiment, with the black die cut on the bottom, 3 layers of white card and 1 layer of the stamped Aster die. I attached using Nuvo adhesive and had the black die cut shadowing the white, with more showing as the sentiment went across. I hope that makes sense.
