Hi everyone. I have a flip-it's card and gift card folder to share today made using sizzix dies to cut out my mixed media paper.
Lots of Paper Artsy Fresco Finish chalk paints in opaques and transluscents (Mermaid, Beach Hut, Snowflake, Blood Orange, Very Berry, Inky Pool, Lilac) were added to build up the colours in several layers and then the stenciling was done with the transluscent shades of the paint. The final layer of stenciling was done with white paint mixed with Paperartsy matte glaze to knock it back a bit and all the colours except blue were used through the Tim Holtz heart stencil.
I stamped over the card base with various stamps from the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous set Bitty Grunge but left the centre extra panel piece free from stamping for contrast apart from the Tim Holtz Hashtag sentiment and the stamping on the heart die cut with a Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers heart die. All the edges are doodled with dots of white, black and Sakura glaze pen, the glaze pen adding a bit of shine and the heart has also been given a layer of Ranger Distress Rock Candy Crackle paint.
The little gift wallet is coloured in the same way but with less colours of paint and less stamping. The sentiment panel has been coloured with the same colours as the card and stamped with another of the hashtag sentiment stamps before doodling and adding the distress crackle paint.
As I've used a stencil for the hearts I'm entering my card and folder into the July Country View Crafts Challenge of 'stencil it'.
