Hi everyone! I’m having a little fun with a scrapbook sketch today in celebration of International Scrapbook Day with Thermoweb! I’m absolutely not a scrapbooker at all…tried, failed, moved on to cards and never looked back. Lol! So I decided to take a sketch for a 12×12 scrapbook page and see if I could turn it into a card. I’m pretty happy with the outcome and it was really fun to push myself.
When I’m getting messy, I like to start with that part first if at all possible so it had time to dry while I work on other parts. So today I inked up a panel with tumbled glass and mermaid lagoon distress oxide inks. Then I splattered it with watered down ink of both colors. Once it was dry, I used the Newton’s Nook petite flowers stencil and decofoil transfer gel over the whole panel.
While that was drying I stamped and colored images from the Newton’s Nook Monarchs stamp set. Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. Thinking ahead to filling in my card a little, I stamped and heat embossed the smaller images from the set in silver and cut them out as well.
Next, I die cut 3 scalloped squares from the Newton’s Nook slimline frames and windows die set and inked them up with colors to coordinate with the butterflies. Last, I die cut two circles from the slimline frames and portholes and inked them up with soft yellow. Then I stamped a sentiment on the bottom half of one in the same gray ink I used on the butterflies.
Once the transfer gel was dry and my laminator was heated up, I ran the flower panel through with purple sketch decofoil. It’s so beautiful and I just love the sketch line detail in this foil! I trimmed the panel down A2 size and wrapped a 2 inch strip of vellum around it before adhering the panel to a white card base. Next, I arranged the scalloped squares and circles how I wanted them and glued them together with liquid glue. Then I added foam squares to the back and placed them on the card front. Last, I added foam squares to the heat embossed butterflies and added them to my scene as well.
