Dream Valley #61 Fancy Folds

Our challenge to you at Dream Valley for the next two weeks is ‘fancy folds’ and we are sponsored by Whimsy Farm Twine with three spools of their fabulous twine.

DV 61 1I started with some Hunkydory Adorable Scorable (jeez that phrase irritates me!) but it does what it says on the tin and scores beautifully with no cracking. I cut it to size and shape and then scored it to create a spring card.

I then cut a couple of layers of card with some Marianne dies and also cut two lengths of a fancy lace die from Magnolia’s Doohickey range called Coffee Lacing and overlaid them one on top of the others. I also used a Joy die which is a butterfly edge die. The lighter shade of card in both butterflies and lace is from a HUGE set of foiled diecut shapes from Kanban. If I live to be twice Rip Van Winkle’s age, I will never get through it all, and certainly not in the way it was intended so I have started diecutting the diecuts to make different shapes that I can use. The small corner diecuts are the waste from a Cuttlebug corner die, as I only wanted a small accent on the corner and not the original corner it cut.

My image was coloured with copics and promarkers. You can’t see it too well here, but there is diamond glaze on her glasses, her flower in the centre of her top (which I then sprinkled glamour dust over) and her hair bobbles.
