Hello everyone! Today I have a pop-up card to share which features a bunch of fun techniques: dies, clear elements, inky watercolour paper, stamping and molding paste. I was sending something to Karen Burniston (for a project you'll have to wait a while to see), and I sent this card a long. She received it yesterday, so now I can share.
I added two molding paste butterflies on the inside, using both of the Mini Butterfly dies.
A Darkroom Door sentiment stamp, from the Bright Blossoms Vol 1 set, was stamped on a label die cut from ledger paper. I used watercolour paper as my base for the card, applied Distress Stains to my craft sheet and misted the paper heavily with water before dragging through the inks. It was stamped with a new Hero Arts ledger stamp and one of my favorites, the alphabet stamp from Tim Holtz School Desk set.
Love this layered stamp look. The small sentiment stamps come from Darkroom Door Wildflowers Vol. 1 set.
This is the front of the card. The flowers were die cut from scrap papers using the Tattered Flower Garland die and layered together with a brad in the middle, the flowers on the inside of the card were done in the same way. A Simple Saying was stamped on a Tattered Banner die cut from ledger paper.
I had some left over paste, and used a Mini Mosaic stencil on the front of the card to apply it through. You can see that the blue and yellow paints have mixed more at this stage, giving a greener colour. This was left to dry before colouring the background with Distress Stains.
I stenciled a third butterfly on acetate, cut it out and adhered with foam dots. On this butterfly, you can clearly see that the acrylic paints weren't completely mixed.
Thank you for looking!
