Use your Wings


Meet "Use your Wings".

I am loving this embossing folder named From Land to Sea and the Red-Crowned Cranes dies by Altenew. They are so different from anything I have ever had before.
For this card I am using Aura cardstock in a pale blue, which I made both the base and the top panel from. I lightly spritzed the top panel and ran it through my Platinum machine to emboss. I prefer to use this machine for embossing as I like the results.

Seeing as I had this machine out, I die cut the pieces for the Crane's from White Neenah cardstock and proceeded to colour the pieces using Copic markers in R27, 100, E33 and C5.
For the waves I used Pinkfresh inks in Slumber, Blue Jay, Sapphire and Stargazer. I then used a white gel pen to add foam to the tips of the waves.

Using Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleedproof White watercolour mixed with water I added splatters to the panel and set the panel aside to dry.
Once all was dry I attached the finished panel to my cardbase using Art Glitter glue. I also cut a piece of the blue along with a piece of Hammermill cardstock for the inside of the card.

To the card front I attached the Crane's using foam squares. I added a piece of Neenah cardstock behind the Tim Holtz sentiment to strengthen it before attaching to the card, again using foam squares.
I had fun making this card and can see all kinds of uses for these products. I hope you have enjoyed this card as well, and I thank you for spending some time with me today.

See you next time.
