Another Case

August 8, 2017

Recently I shared with you a card which I CASED from Heidi Baks and today I am sharing my version of a card which my lovely upline Stephanie Pike shared on her blog recently.  She has a video which shows you how to go about creating your background, which is a bit of a variation on faux silk.  Anyway I loved her card and found the video easy to follow so I had some fun getting inky and created my focal panel using the same colours as she did – Lemon Lime Twist, Pool Party and Bermuda Bay.  You need Tissue paper, a Window Sheet, ink refills in the colours stated and a spritzer filled with water.  Be prepared to make a mess while you have fun.  I think my paper turned out a lot darker than Stephanie’s, but I was still very happy with it.  The tissue paper is allowed to dry (and yes I did speed mine up a bit with the heat tool but be warned that this can make your colours a little lighter) before being attached to a piece of Whisper White paper.  The panel is attached to scored and folded thick Whisper White A4 card .  I stamped the greeting from the Best Birds stamp set onto the bottom right hand corner using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set using my heat tool.   I cut the dragonfly from Copper Foil card using the Detail Dragonfly Thinlits Dies and attached it over the tissue paper.

To decorate the inside, I used a piece of left over tissue paper which I attached to a narrow strip of Whisper White card.  Very simple, but I think the tissue paper and the Copper Foil are striking enough, don’t you? Once again my thanks to Stephanie for providing such beautiful inspiration.

Bye for now,

      Hi Wendy, if you have a look at Stephanie’s video, she uses the Window sheet to add drops of re-inker which she sprays with water and then lays the tissue paper on top. You need to be careful not to tear the tissue paper when you pick it up because it is pretty wet.

    Absolutely gorgeous Kris. Thank you for reminding me of what a great technique this is. May have to revisit again soon.

      Thanks Vicky. It is a fun technique as long as you don’t mind getting inky fingers.
