Strawberry Delight

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

I had so much fun making this card which I did for a challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The diamond background is made from two different colours of inks, a green and a mustard shade. Once I had finished the diamond background I then cut the negative shape of the strawberry die in my background and then cut two other shapes and coloured using Chameleon Markers. I inserted one of the coloured images into the cut shape of the diamond background, then styled the other shape and adhered over top so there is much depth to this card. I added bronze glitter pen to the strawberries for the seeds. I did cut extra flowers and styled and added to my design, and added a product known as Stickles to the flower centers. A few sequins and crystal gems finished my card.

Life is ...

I was inspired by all the storms Southern Ontario has had in the last couple of days.  The background raindrops come from a designer paper series. The image is hand painted with Chameleon Markers which adds wonderful hues of bursting colour. The raindrops on the image also have Crystal Effects on them, which when you see in real life, adds shine to the drops. The image is triple matted, and matting is added to the designer paper. The shape is a tent fold. I added the sentiment which I made in Photoshop.


This little Panda wants to have a look around. Isn't he cute? To show off this the Panda I used the same embossing folder for both the top panel and the background. I coloured the Panda using Markers and Prismacolor Pencils. The fur texture on his face I created using gesso. I added the Bamboo die branch, some ribbon and some sequins to finish.
