Today sees the start of a new challenge: Nature's Glories.
As you can see, I decided to make an accordion flip card. With the help of the Karen Burniston die these are easy to make and full instruction are included with the die and can also be found on the Sizzix blog, so I won't go into all that. Just recently I have had the seasons on my mind and when I think of nature, I often think of them. Each season has its own wonderful array of gifts to bring. I created a 4 panel card, each depicting different elements of nature through the year more or less.
The base was made from Core'dinations card, I chose a different colour for each frame and then tried to match the panels with similar colours. The base for the panels were papers from the new Tim Holtz Kraft resist paper stash. This new one has both Kraft and White resist papers, and for this project I used the white to have an easy base to add colour.
This first panel kind of depicts Summer and I used a honeycomb resist paper. Colour was added with the help of the new Wendy Vecchi Archival inks mostly. The stamped flowers are from Heartfelt Creations. The little bee is an Artemio stamp. I also added a sentiment from the Tim Holtz Mercantile stamp set and a remnant rub. The shadow around the flower was added with a Black Soot Distress marker.
All main stamps were stamped on smooth card in Jet Black Archival and then fussy cut and glued on.
HERE and many of the products I used can be found in the Countryview Crafts shop, and if you live in the UK, you will probably know that there are no postage charges!!!
I'll be back later on with a challenge piece for Our Creative Corner, so if you have the time, it would be great to see you again!
Happy first of May to you all, and wishing you all a happy day with lots of sunshine!!!
