The scene was stamped onto the acetate using StazOn ink.
Colouring was added to the reverse using alcohol ink pens. Strips of copy paper were used as a mask and alcohol ink spritzed using a bulb attachment for pens. Basically air is blown across the pen tip by squeezing the bulb, creating a spray. Some colour was dabbed away from the sky area using nail varnish remover.
Double sided sticky sheet was then placed on the back and coloured glitters were dropped onto the scene, burnishing into the sticky sheet using a finger.
A die was then used to cut out a hexagon shape from the centre of the scene. A little Kristall Gel was applied to the background panel for added texture and sparkle.
White card was trimmed and glued to the back to make the images stand out. These were then backed with black card to create a border around the background and hexagon cut shape. White faux stitching was added to frame the images.
My second project uses the lovely butterfly tree as the main focus to create another dreamy scene.
Ink spritzers (pink and green) and sparkle brush pens (deep pink and clear)
Stickles glitter glue (Diamond) and PVA pearls (pink)
Large decorative square die (Tonic)
How it was done:
The background was created using ink spritzers. The image was stamped with Versamark, embossed with sparkly powder and coloured with sparkle pens. The embossing pen was used to draw in extra hills extending the scene and anchoring the tree.
The image was stamped again onto the vellum, embossed with white powder. The butterflies were cut out, shaped and glued onto the tree.
The image was then framed with the decorative die cut and finished with glitter glue and PVA pearls.
Dies: Venetian Lace Layering set (Tonic), flower pot (Trimcraft Pots & Vases), Butterfly (Sizzix)
How it was done:
Kraft card was trimmed and mounted onto the card front and faux stitching added with fine tipped pen.
The lace mats were cut from pink card and decorative background paper glued in place. The butterfly was also cut from pink card. Sentiments were stamped with Distress Ink.
The flower pot was cut from pearl brown card and lightly shaped before gluing with 3D glue gel.
The flowers were stamped with Memento Ink and coloured with alcohol pens. The floral spray and individual flowers were cut out for decoupage, lightly shaped before gluing down using 3D glue gel. A little clar sparkle pen was brushed over the flowers for sparkle.
The bumble bees were stamped with Versafine, coloured with watercolour pens and cut out.
Yellow Flowersoft was glued into the flower centres, green onto some of the leaves and onto the foreground (to ‘ground’ the pots).
Finished with touches of glitter glue for added sparkle.
The floral spray was stamped with Memento directly onto the card blank, avoiding the area of the central circle. The leafy fern and sentiment were stamped onto the scalloped circle with Versafine. Frames and mat were glued to the card front.
The leaves were stamped with Versamark onto black paper, embossed with silver powder and cut out. They were lightly shaped with a ball tool and glued in place with 3D glue gel for dimension.
