One more post for today - Waltzingmouse Fanatics Challenge
Disclaimer: These photos are stinky, but I gotta get this posted tonight since the challenge closes so, just kind of squint and pretend they look fabulous.
I wanted to play along with the new Waltzingmouse Fanatics challenge - this challenge was a sketch, and I got to do some experimenting with new dies and some coloring (which I am always nervous about), but I think this came out OK.
Overall a pretty straightforward card. I added outdoor denim ink to my cardstock with a foam blending tool and then cut the squiggly line for the slider. Colored in my little spaceship with Spectrum Noir markers, and then added some stars/moon with Platinum Brilliance ink. I colored those shapes in with a metallic pen and added a little bit of that metallic pen coloring to to the image too. I also swiped the Brilliance ink around the edges of the card base to add a little shine to that. The sentiment was embossed in silver.
Since I blended the ink onto the cardstock before I die cut the squiggle, I could adhere that to the card base, then I popped up the whole piece and adhered the image to the spinner element and inserted it into the slider.
My first slider card, these are really fun, and a lot easier than I thought.
OK, I am off to bed!
