Morning, Hope you are well and are still enjoying the projects I am sharing from Leonie Pujol's New Collection. I have enjoyed sharing with you.
To make the background for the aperture of my card, I took a sheet of Acetate along with a selection of alcohol inks in yellow, orange and red. I also used some blending solution, 3D Crystal Lacquer and a sheet of tissue paper.
On my sheet of Acetate I added drops of my alcohol inks all over, using more yellow and orange with just a few drops here and there of the red. I then added some blending solution to allow the colour to move, sprinkled some gold mica in at the same time with a generous amount of 3D Lacquer. I then place the tissue paper over the top (I had previously scrunched this) and manipulated the colours and mica until I was happy with the result. I left this to dry over night.
I made an 8 x 8'' square card from Black Pearl card and cut an aperture using a Grand spellbinder shape from the centre. I then cut a square of the coloured acetate and secured behind the aperture with red liner tape. I also cut a rectangle of the acetate to go behind my sentiment and set aside.
On a sheet of heat resistant acetate I stamped 3 butterflies from Leonie's Flight To Freedom Set, using versamark, I embossed them with black fine detail embossing powder. I also stamped a sentiment from the collection using the same method.
I folded the acetate with the sentiment around the coloured acetate and secured it behind so nothing showed. Then I layered this onto black pearl card. I shaped this so it was tunnel shaped and attached it to my card using 3D glue gel.
I cut out the butterflies and shaped them before securing them to my card using 3D glue gel, flying free.
I have tried to capture the look of the card with the light shining through but it didn't work, even with a torch it didn't look good on camera.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today, hopefully you have enjoyed it and will stop by again soon.Take care xx
