What a funny day it has been today lol! one minute bright sunshine the next, heavy rain showers! thunder and lightening!! Never mind, it appears the weather is getting better towards the weekend. Tonight I would like to share another of my makes for Sue and Harvey of Imagination Craft's next TV show this Thursday, the 21st. May at 1pm. on Create & Craft. I do hope you can tune in.
Fold your white base card in half down the crease line to make a 7"x7" square card. Matt a piece of purple card onto the base card, leaving a narrow border of the white card showing.
Take two pieces of the patterned panel card and trim to size to fit to the purple border top and bottom of the base card. Die-cut two flourishes from purple card, using the Tim Holtz die, then glue these to the panel. Next glue the panel to the left-hand side of the base card.
Take the second piece of patterned panel card and lay the 'flourish fountain' stencil onto it and dab Versamark through the design using a piece of cut n' dry foam. Remove the stencil and brush with the lemon yellow, purple and orange mica powders from Imagination Craft's 'moonlight' set. Brush away the excess powder and polish gently with a soft brush. Glue this panel to the right-hand side of the base card.
Take a piece of light green card and cut a panel, again, to fit up to the purple border around the base card. Lay the stencil onto it and repeat what you did on the second patterned panel. Colour around the edges of the green card with seedless preserves and chipped sapphire distress inks.
Add purple velvet Detail Sparkle to all the dots on the design. Matt this onto the purple card, so the border shows only down the left and right edges.
Glue this to the base card and add a purple ribbon bow to the top right of the card. One little tip for you, to stop the mica powder being rubbed off the card, spray, at a distance, some cheap hairspray onto the design. This sets the powders so they don't rub off. Well this card is now finished, I do hope you like it. Thank you once again for visiting my blog, If you are not a card maker, I hope I may have inspired you to give this great hobby a go lol!!
See you again tomorrow night with another 'sneaky peek.'
Love and rainbows,
