Hello Crafty friends,
All new products will be available as of tomorrow, 15/03!
My card today has an unusual format. I see more and more of these long cards on Instagram and thought of trying one too. I took an 8,5*8,25 piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock and folded in half so the ready card measures 8,5*8,125 inches. I used a thin painter’s tape to mask an even frame all around the sides. Then I applied Tumbled Glass an Twisted Citron Distress inks with a light hand, fading it out at the meeting point to avoid the colours mixing.
Then I used the Cloudy sky stencil to add some blue clouds with the same Tumbled Glass ink. I love the tone on tone look I get this way. I stamped the sentiment at this point in the top middle part of the card with black ink.
I chose 3 of the cute mice from the Garden Mice stamp set and stamped them on Copic friendly cardstock. I used Copic markers to add colour to them and cut them out with the coordinating dies. I mounted them on the scene with 3D foam squares.
After assembling the scene I added a bit of clear shimmer to the flowers and the butterfly, used a black glaze pen on the eyes and added glossy accents to the noses, the butterfly and the middle of the flowers.
I also used some flower sequins and pink jewels (Studio Katia) to make the scene complete.
