Happy Thursday! I am back again today with a card that I made following the tutorial from Tuesday: Watercolor on Foil.
The foil piece on this card is actually the scrap from the tag. I used a dogwood and butterfly stamp and die set by Hero Arts and Sizzix (Flowers & Butterflies) to add flowers to the foil. The left and lower edge didn’t have much paper left on it so there isn’t much color on the foil. I like that there is a lot of variation in the amount of color on the foil. It makes it feel more distressed to me. I also think it really illustrates the difference the paper makes in the color.
The upper area had a lot of paper pulp remnants. I decided to add a bit of Broken China Distress Ink there the paper was the heaviest to the create a sky.
I love stamping this butterfly in vellum and adding it as a layer. It is such an easy way to add dimension and movement to a project.
To create a card, I simply adhered the foil piece to manila card stock for stability and then matted it on pattern paper. I added an 1/8″ to each layer using my Perfect Layers Rulers. I made a card out of a coordinating piece of heavy weight double-sided pattern paper (all pattern paper BasicGrey Kissing Booth.)
By creating this card while I already had the supplies out for my tag from the tutorial, I was able to make this card in about 30 minutes. Most of that time getting lost in the magic of coloring with markers and selecting the pattern paper. I am loving how quick it is to create a second look from the tutorial. It has definitely increased my productivity!
Now, I am back to creating for CHA. I can’t wait to show you what I have been creating! I’ll be back here Saturday with Quotes for Art. I hope to see you here!
