Something Old And Something New Two


I'm back with the kind of new thing again!  I created the background using a technique from my Online Watercolor Class.  I had the images from an earlier card and just changed them around a little.  Here is how this card was created:

CARDFRONT:
  1. Stamped Rose Pitcher on white cardstock with Brilliance Galaxy Gold, painted with Twinkling H2O's.  The roses and the bud with stem were both stamped 3 more times and painted with twinks.  All were fussy cut, embossed from the back and mounted on the cardfront with 3D pop-dots and w/o on other areas.  The lace tablecloth open areas were cut out with an X-Acto Knife and a healing mat.
  2. The background area was created with CAC Craquelure and Twinkling H2O's using a technique I learned in the Online Watercolor Class series.

 Building Card:
  1. Front -  White Laid cardstock was used for the base.
  2. The Craquelure BG was mounted on that.
  3. The image was mounted on die cuts from Spellbinders Lacey Squares using white and natural cardstock.  It was then mounted on the Craquelure.
  4. Inside - Die Cut edges were mounted with strips of the Craquelure BG.
  5. A small die cut was used for the Rose and a rose with stem was mounted to the right.
  6. Envy - Two of the Lacey Square edges were mounted back to back and a rose with stem added. The lacey edges were peeled to thin before mounting and so was the rose with stem.  I start the separation by flipping the edge back and forth with my X-acto knife, see it starting a little and open it up enough to gently a little at a time holding one side flat or with the free hand.
  7. The bow is May Arts and the heart pen is Maya Roads with a Czech bead added by applying Glossy Accents to the stem.
Off to clean some rain gutters.  LOLOL  No rest for the wicked....or is it the stamping.  ;-)  Thanks for stopping by to  look and share.

Oh my that is just Beautiful, I can't imagine cutting out that lace by hand with an x-acto knife but you did an amazing job with it, love the idea of using the diecuts on the inside, may have to cut out some extra borders and such to make doing my insides a bit quicker :)

Ah! What a gorgeous cup of blossoms, Shirley! I love how richly you colored those leaves. They really pop.

Cleaning gutters....hmmmm, ah, gee, would love to offer to help, but - wow, look at that - my husband is calling. Gotta run!

This is simply stunning. If this technique was in the recent w/c, I must go back and rewatch the videos! It's gorgeous. I was impressed with your Xacto cutting skills...would never have the patience to do such fussy cuts. Yours is beautiful. The gold teapot holding these lovely roses is just so pretty. What a wonderful card for the recipient with the inside decorated so pretty and even the envelope. What a marvelous card you've created. TFS & Hugs

Gorgeous image, Shirley, & I love your card! The lacey die cut is perfect for it!

Shona said...

You cut the bits out of the tablecloth???!!! Shirley, you are my cardmaking idol! This card is spectacular!

Craftyfield said...

The central image is well colored with lots of contrast, but it's the background I absolutely love... The Crackle stamp is obviously perfect for this technique but there are a couple of IO Lace background stamps that would look gorgeous too...
