Sketch 42 Day 4

Sketches come in all different shape and sizes, and don't have to done strictly to the design they can be turned upright, sideways, upside down in fact any way you want.  So with this sketch the world is your oyster.  For my design I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the left and changed the size dimensions of the design. I also thought I would used different patterned papers so that the colours blended together.

So here are the products I used:-

Dreamweaver stencil LL375 Rose.

Silver embossing paste
Palette knife / spreader
Low tack tape
Stampendous stamp set SSC1122
2 sheets of Craftwork cards 8 x 8 paper pad Butterfly Parade
Quickie glue pen
Glossy accents
Silver mirri card
Black card
Turquoise patterned card
8 x 8 white card blank
Craftwork cards - In circles everyday messages
Black Momento ink pad 
Stampendous ultra fine crystal glitter

and the steps to make the card:-

1 Take the Butterfly Parade piece of paper with the overall roses and butterflies pattern and trim to 71/2'' x 71/2''.  Cut a piece of black card 73/4'' x 73/4'' and matt and layer these 2 pieces together.

2 Next take the Rose and Butterfly single design sheet and trim this down to 41/4'' x 53/8'' so that only the design is used as a panel and go around the edge of this with black ink - either a pen, alcohol pen or ink pad will do for this.  This piece is then matted on to a piece of turquoise patterned card and then black card.  All these layers are attached flat.  I used double sided tape.

3 Continuing with this panel the next step is to cover the 3 butterflies with glossy accents and allow this to dry completely. Once dry take the quickie glue pen and add highlights to the rose and buds.  (I went around the edges of some of the petals just to give sparkle) when the glue has gone clear take the ultra fine crystal glitter and cover the sticky glue, remove the excess and return to the pot.  Place this panel to the side.

3 Cut 2 strips from the leftover pieces of the large rose and butterflies measuring 13/4'' x 41/8'' and also cut 2 pieces of black card 17/8'' x 41/4''.

4 Use the Black Momento ink pad and stamp the flourish border stamp.  Stamp the 2 small pieces of the paper making sure that the straight edge of the stamp goes right along one of the edges of the paper.  REMEMBER to stamp the design on opposite sides of the paper so that on the finished card the edge of the border runs along the edge of the card.  These 2 pieces are then matted on to the black card but only 2 edges of these panels have a black border . These panels can now be attached to the background.

5 The Rose and Butterfly panel is now attached to the background approximately 1/2'' from the right hand side and 1'' from the top.  This is also attached flat to the card.

6 Next cut a piece of black card and piece of silver mirri card slightly bigger than the black. The black card has the Rose stencil and the silver embossing technique completed on to it.  

7 The paste  embossing technique is completed by using low tack tape around all 4 sides of the stencil attaching it to the card, Using the palette knife or spreader, apply the silver embossing paste, any excess return to the pot and seal the pot.  Remove the stencil  and place in water ready for cleaning.  The stencil image should now be put to one side and allowed to dry totally.

8 Once the paste is completely dry attach to the silver mirri matt and attach to the card using 3 D foam or silicone glue.

9 The final embellishments to be added to the card are 2 self adhesive gems on the right top and bottom corners of the Rose and butterfly panel and a ribbon tied around the top of the card.

The card is now finished it takes a little longer than some to make as your waiting for different parts to dry, but I think its worth it.  I hope you like the card.
