Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Showcase to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.
Week 37 – Pretty Peacock
These projects tonight use the Art Gallery bundle and some of the coordinating products from the suite.
The Golden Garden Specialty Acetate is so pretty and I really wanted to use some but wasn’t sure where to start. I layered it over some of the Fine Art Floral DSP, but this is the reverse side that was less patterned so the gold of the acetate really shines. I cut the acetate to the same size as the DSP.
The flower is stamped in So Saffron ink and then Versamark for the second layer, heat and stick powder added, melted gently with the heat tool and then the Gilded Leafing added. I have started using a sponge dauber to rub off the excess gold leafing, as I found the oils in my fingers were leaving it a little dull. The leaves are stamped off once in Pretty Peacock so it isn’t so dark. Die cut these images with the coordinating dies. Stamp and die cut the sentiment. Add dimensionals on the back of the stamped images.
Place the square vellum doilies at an angle in the centre of the acetate then stick the flower and leaves on. Turn the acetate layer over and place Tear & Tape only behind where the flower and sentiment are, so it’s not visible from the front. Now place the acetate onto the DSP.
Wrap the ribbon around both layers of DSP & Acetate and tie in a bow. Add glue to the back and adhere it to the card base. Finally add some of the Butterfly Gems to finish it off.
For my next card I have used the Gilded Leafing to simulate the technique many call, scrappy strip. By simply cutting the DSP to size, then placing 4 strips of Tear & Tape at angles down the paper. Take off the backing paper and add the Gilded Leafing. I use a sponge dauber to brush off the excess.
The Double Oval Punch makes it so easy to create a sentiment and matt layer for your cards; one an oval and the other a slightly larger scallop oval in the one punch!
