Ready? Here she is:
I warned you!
This is for the current Friday Mash-up challenge:
This week's Mash-up Challenge is:
- Create a project with the "Triple Layer Technique" Tutorial HERE.
- Create a project that's "Floral".
- or Mash it Up! and create a "Floral Triple Layer Project".
Please note: I did not follow the tutorial; instead I made up my own way to get a similar effect.
Traditionally, one makes a background by stamping and coloring images, but not me. Oh, no no no. I went with a floral lace background stamp instead. I stamped it with Unicorn white ink and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder.
Then I added three colors of Distress ink: Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade, and Tumbled Glass. I chose these three so I'd get some orange, green and purple where they overlapped.
Then I lined up two rectangle dies and cut the base:
If you try this, you can cut yours straight.
And this is what the base looks like after it was hacked up:
I added a layer of blue Bazzill card stock under each of the center panels. The cool thing about these layers is they hide the opening under the layer. I put the larger layer on foam tape, but stuck the smaller layer directly to the one under it. No need to make this card an inch thick.
I was originally going to put a bold sentiment, stamped with black, on a banner across the center, but I couldn't get it to look right, so I went to Plan B and used a die-cut sentiment, cut from a remnant of Hero Arts Charcoal paper. I cut a white sentiment, too, so I could stack the sentiment a little. I dotted the i with a drop of Silver Pearl Liquid Pearls.
This was quite labor-intensive, and probably won't happen again any time soon, but I'm happy I made it.
I have one more challenge card to share, then I might take a nap.
Thanks for stopping by!
