This card was one of the projects that I taught at Phill Martin’s Craftathon last month –
I started by creating my Bargello Background. I cut 3 pieces of A5 Coconut White Card. I added some Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide to my Craft Sheet, misted with water and then dabbed one of the sheets of card into it. I picked up a second piece and dipped this into the remaining ink. The first piece had more ink on it that the second. I dried them using a Heat Tool.
I added some Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide onto Craft Sheet, misted with water and then dabbed my second sheet of card into it. I dipped my first piece of card into the remaining ink. So, one piece had more Seedless Preserves on it and one piece had more Chipped Sapphire on it.
I chose one of my backgrounds and then randomly stamped some of the little stamps from Phill Martin’s Mystical Moments Stamp Sets using the same two Oxides.
For my third background, I dragged the same two Oxides across my final piece of A5 Card, giving a deeper coloured background.
I cut all my backgrounds up into 2cm wide strips and glued them to a piece of Copy Paper, alternating the strips.
I turned my background lengthways and cut it again into 2cm strips. I glued these strips to another piece of Coconut White Card, offsetting the strips so that the pattern squares stepped down each time.
I trimmed my background to 7 1/2″ square and matted onto a piece of Coconut White Card that I had inked around the edges with my two Oxides. I added this to an 8 x 8 card blank.
I stamped the two corners from the Mystical Moments Corner Set onto a piece of Coconut White Card using my two Oxides and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Seedless Preserves. I matted onto a piece of Coconut White Card that I had inked around the edges with my two Oxides. I added it to my background using CE Mounting Cushion.
I cut some flowers out of Coconut White Card using the outer dies in the Pinwheel Floral Die Set. I added a little of my Oxides to my Craft Sheet, misted with water and dipped my flowers into the ink. I stamped some of the little stamps from the Mystical Moments Stamp Sets, again using my Oxides. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using the Maidenhair Fern Die Set.
I completed my card by adding some White Pearls.
