Hi everybody, welcome to our next episode of The Great Cover-Up! This weekly feature is all about how to create shaped card blanks and resist background. Today Suzie and Julianne are your guides in The Great Cover-Up so enjoy!
Let’s get started!
Sometimes you just cannot find the right size or shape card blank. Just make your own using layering dies! I have used the same layering die set to create my background mount and then card shape.
I love creating depth and dimension to my backgrounds and die cut images. Using the resist technique of stamping in clear pigment Ink, heat with clear embossing powder and then ink blending over the top creates a wonderful background with a WOW factor..no pun intended!
Ink the edges of die cuts with a complimentary ink colour to create the illusion of shadow ..works every time!
STAMPS: Dandelion Wishes,
DIES: Dandelion Wishes, Love to Layer: Torn Edges
INK: Stormy Sea, True Black, Lavender Moon, Amethyst Allure, Spring Rain, Green Parakeet, Prairie Grass
OTHER: WOW! Embossing Powder Clear
So what happens when you make a mistake? The first thing that comes to my mind is how can I fix this, how can I work with what I have?
I started out by stamping the flying by butterfly stamp set onto some Bristol smooth watercolor cardstock using versafine onyx black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored in my image with my Karin Brush marker pros with the colors gold, amber, orange red and black.
I started out created two ink blended backgrounds, but when I used one of my panels and ran it thru my die cutting machine with the Danity Deliveries frame die, my die shifted and ruin my panel. I thought about creating a new one but really didn’t want to, but had the second panel off to the side, so I decided I needed a change in plans and used the same die but this time I embossed the panel with the die to get a whole new look!
