DV #157 More Than One Fold

Our challenge for the next two weeks at Dream Valley is to create a card with more than one fold. We are sponsored both by All Dressed Up and by Oddball Art and we were lucky enough to get to choose an image from their fabulous ranges to play with. I went with Oddball Art and chose Sally and Charlie.

As you can see from my card below I saw this image and thought of the sea…. It wasn’t until I was colouring it I realised she was a fairy and Charlie had wings…. but ho hum. I like to think of it as fancy dress and a funky rubber swimming ring! At least that’s my excuse, lol

157 More Than One Fold 1

For my ‘more than one fold’ I started with a Spellbinders die that cuts a step card and cut the base from centura pearl. It’s a fabulous die and comes with all the toppers but I only wanted it for the base card and matting layer.

Next I stamped the background with MFT’s background stamp Whimsical Waves, with versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I then watercoloured it with the Prima Confections, Pastel Dream, selection, in various shades of green/blue.

157 More Than One Fold 2

I then cut them out with the layering die and matted them onto the base. Next I started on my image, and it was at this point I thought, heck that’s a fairy and a dragon! But hey ho I was committed now…. I coloured Sally with my copics and fussy cut her out.

The Turtle die I think is Memory Box, but I am not 100% sure. The other diecuts are from Marianne and come on one strip. I cut those out a couple of times.

I coloured them with copics and stuck them all down with foam pads. I finally added some bubbles with a cute little bubble stamp that comes on a mermaid set from Hunkydory. My favourite diecuts are those doody little Angel Fish and the Seahorses.

DV #156 Things With Wings

Our challenge today is Things with Wings and we are sponsored by Sayasaki Glitter. I have used one of their lovely digis to create my card, You Blow Me Away. The digi is show at an angle as if she is about to take off in flight, but I preferred it straightened upright so manipulated it in my graphics program.

156 Things with Wingsa

I have coloured her mainly with copics, but with touches of Sakura Koi brush markers as well. I also added glitter to the hem and collar of her dress and to her wings.

The paper behind is from First Edition. It has lovely touches of glitter in it too. The frame is a Sue Wilson Doubled Pierced rectangle die, which I cut from white card and coloured with my copics to match the colours in the image.
