Hello Everyone! Today I finished up Collection 3 from the April Flavor of the Month Card Kit! For 2 of these cards I was inspired by fellow design team member Stacy!
I cut down the yellow pattern paper for my main panel and grabbed 2 scraps to line on the bottom. I stamped the image out and die cut with a circle die. I saw that Stacy had use Distress Ink for this image on one of her cards and I LOVED the look so I did that here. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I then gathered the twine and tried to tie int he center for a messy bow and used Range Multi Matte Medium to adhere it to my card. As the card sat on my desk, I kept thinking I needed a little something more so I added the 3 enamel dots to the upper, right corner of the card.
This card is VERY similar to card one. I didn’t have a long enough scrap for the bottom of the card so I used a stitched sentient die with a fishtail end. I popped the image up on foam adhesive and brought in more enamel dots .
This card it nothing like how I imaged it would be when I started. I used a larger “scrap” to die cut the Camera with flowers die that was found in the banana split portion of the kit. I added that piece to some yellow pattern paper from the collection with liquid glue – and what a mess I made!! There was so much glue I either had to scrap the piece or figure out how to cover it up. I decided to press on and cover it up. I used Nuvo drops to basically “color” the piece. I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in Yellow Bird for the flower pieces, Nuvo Crystal Drops in Woodland Green for the leaves and the Camera piece I used Nuvo Glitter Drops in White Blizzard.
This is the last card I made from this collection. I decided to try coloring the image with Copic Markers (these types of images are a little intimidating for me because I tend to be too heavy handed and my colors bleed so I tried to approach the coloring of this image by not trying so hard – and I think it worked.) I used up most of the left over pieces of pattern paper and also added the last 2 enamel dots I received in this collection.
