Forgive me, I said I wouldn’t be back until Wednesday but here I am again, popping into your life and disrupting your day! But the current challenge at Less Is More is just too much fun and so I have another card for you.
If you have read yesterday’s post, then you will know the challenge is all about using bits from your box. And I have so many, that I couldn’t resist another card.
So here it is, in all it’s colourful cuteness!
If you saw yesterday’s post you will have possibly spotted the rainbow cardstock strips and also the little rainbow bellied dragons. The dragons were Copic coloured sometime last year and it seemed like a match made in heaven to pair the two together. And you know me, I just love my bright colours!
So I began by cutting a strip from one of the rainbow cardstock panels and adhering it to an A2 base card (top folding, horizontal) with DST. Then I die cut a white panel and a vellum panel with a stitched cloud border. The vellum border was adhered to the back of the white panel with wet glue.
I grabbed Concord & 9th’s fabulous Dahlia Turnabout stamp set. I adore the sentiments in this set, particularly the font size, and the “hi” seemed just right. In order to get my sentiment placement right, I first stamped the “hi” onto some acetate – I could then move it around to see where to finally stamp it on the panel. It saves a lot of time and supplies if you do this as you don’t waste the cardstock if it’s in the wrong place (ask me how I know).
Once I had the placement right, I popped the cloud panel into my MISTI, stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink and then adhered the whole panel using DST to the card base.
Lastly, I added some foam tape to the dragon and popped him onto the card. After I had photographed and was about to put him away, I added a little bit of shimmer to his wings and belly. His expression kills me!
So there you go, that finishes the card for today. I can’t promise I won’t have another but at some point I need to clean the house and do the ironing! Thank you as always for your visit, I love to hear from you and am happy to answer any questions you have about my cards. Until next time, have a wonderful day.
