Side Step card With 3D Images

Hullo there everyone .. Shaz  here again with another DT post for Bizzy Bec's. Branching out into the unknown today, with a side step card!! For a very special birthday, you see! Here is a peek!
To be perfectly honest I like simple layouts. These fancy folds are not simple layouts! Bec has a great die that makes variations on this side stepping card, it is here. Used a simple template I had for rough guide, working it out on scoreboard. Took two goes scoring to get it right, wanted it bigger than template.
Used the Frantic Stamper Dies - Chevron Borders & Edgers (2) - make a whole sheet for background of alternating chevrons. Glued down one at time, kept them in order as cut the individual ones, so as to keep *colour graduations, yes fiddly plus but great effect. *used pre-coloured sheet.
Base for image done, then cut it with largest die of SB Pierced Rectangles

Stamped two images (one for base, one for 3D image) of the Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday in Versafine Black Onyx, and clear heat embossed.
Die cut a pink scalloped base with Spellbinder Petite scallop (Disc.) and one image with Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval die (they fit spellbinder oval dies very well).
While still in stitched die, ink coloured the background to match colours used on other image already coloured with Tombow markers. Fussy cut around the coloured dragon image, cutting into the folds of the image. Lay image on shaping mat face down, shape the image, with shaping tool to get 3D effect with minimal layers. Attached to base image with silicone glue and allow to dry.
See here for Tutorial to do it this way.

Completed side step card:
 "th" is from Impression Obsession Greetings die from birthday - this set here!

**Wild Rose Stamps - Dragon Birthday 
(**bought Aug '17 from Bec, still available online, but not listed, so please ask for it)
Tombow coloured pens 
Close up of the image, the gold paint used is Finetec Watercolour metallic set. Just loved this image, right down to wee crown on Miss Mousey's head.
 Thanks for reading this far, more details if you want them are on my blog post here.

Shop 'til you drop...

Hi everyone.

 Popping in on this cold and very wild and windy day Spring day in  Perth  to share with you a new card.

I have had fun today playing with a newly aquired stamp set from Penny Black.


I stamped this cutie onto patterned paper from my stash and have coloured
her up with Copic Markers, using a little glitter from a Glitter pen to add accents
to some of the shopping bags and the balloon, together with white
gel pen for high lights.

I have used the following:

Penny Black Transparent Stamp - You're Retro
Lawn Fawn Stamp & Die Set - Hello Sunshine 


Becs Flash Sale has been extended until the end of September, so pop on over and take advantage of the sale to grab some goodies.

Happy Crafting

Karen

Watercoloured Distress inks Spellbinders Elegant Ovals

Hi there everyone, Shaz here with a another tutorial on watercolouring, with distress inks.
The best way to colour this fine lined image, was with Distress inks watercolours - no detail is lost! Plus they blend beautifully.
Smooched
Distress ink on white piece of laminated cardstock, or use a stamping block, with white paper under it so you can see colours.
U
sed two mauve/ purple, and three green with blue. DI Blue Denim was used on both purple and green for shadows.
So here is the completed image .. this was for a very special friend"s birthday. Also lightly inked whilst the die cut still in Stitched Oval die with Distress inks in two greens, Peeled Paint, and Pine Needles. Cottage Cutz Stitched ovals  fit really well the largest of the Spellbinder Elegant Ovals.
I shaped the flowers as love the 3D look, although it doesn't really show that clearly - see here to show I do it. I did this with a single coloured layer.. a cheat's way :D
Completed card. All dies, etc, used listed below.

Items Used:
 Spellbinder Elegant Ovals
Our Daily Bread Beautiful Border Dies.
(Available previously with Bec before, so check availability).
Distress inks
Dies on Small labels:
Greeting is a disc. Our Daily Bread Greeting set, and Cuttlebug disc. Olivia Alphabet set for numbers.
