Endless Possibilities Day 5

For this final day of the hop I thought I'd go back to card making (its more me).  The new Dreamweaver Die LG745 Tree line was my choice as I could imagine being out walking on a summers day with the sunshine  and flowers at the edge of the woods.  I also thought it was a way of using the Versafine ink pads for colouring the scene. 

Heres what I created:-




For this project you will need:-

Cream card, black card, Dreamweaver Die LG745 Tree line, Versafine ink pads :-Olympia green, Spanish Moss, Crimson Red, Vintage Sepia, Smokey Grey, Majestic Blue and Toffee, Finger daubers, Black micron pen, Die Cutting machine, and adhesives.

and this is how you create the project:-

1 Take a piece of cream card and a piece of black card and cut the Tree line die.  I use a Big shot machine

2 Using the Versafine ink pads and daubers colour the cream die cut shape, the Versafine colours blend together and I was able to achieve the colour tones and shades I wanted.


3 Take the black die cut piece and lay this behind your coloured piece, make sure that the black edge is visible, this will add depth to your design as well as shadow.  Stick these 2 layers together.

4 The next step is to take another piece of cream card slightly bigger than the panel you have created, you next need a piece of scrap paper (I used photocopy paper) and you need to tear so that you form a hill shaped edge. These pieces are then used as masks to create the background of the design.  As ever the colour choice is yours, I used the Crimson Red in the foreground as I had imagined colourful floral bushes. to add a little more interest to the 'bushes' I used the black micron pen and groups of 3 small dots randomly over the red areas.

5 The outer edge of the piece I edged with the Vintage sepia ink pad, again this gave definition to the panel.

6 The final stage was to put all the layers together and then finish off with a green bow.

Hope you like my design.  

Heres what the rest of the teams have done



Hope you have enjoyed this weeks Endless Possibilities

  13. I love that you did NOT go sunrise or sunset with the Tree Line die, as most of us do. Love the soft lilac colors and rolling hills. Just needs some little sheep dotting the hillside to make me feel I'm in Yorkshire again!
