Hello all! It's AUGUST!!! Time flies by literally...! Hope you are having a great Summer so far!
The Ton Challenge for the month of August is all about SUMMER!!! Pull out your The Ton goodies and play along before the Summer says good-bye to us :) !
I played with Wave and our newest stamp set, Mermaid Vibes to create a tri-fold card. I actually crated two panels and connected them with a middle panel.
To start off I created the backgrounds on some mixed media papers for the two colored panels. For my wave panel I added the blue watercolor on the bottom area, as I wanted to widen down the wave. I used Cerulean Blue, Turquoise and Indigo Color Burst to color. And on the underwater panel I created an ocean scene using the same colors. To show the clouds I dabbed off the color with paper towel while it was still wet. I then started stamping the Wave in Cali Blue, Azurite and True Navy on the panel on the bottom part of which I added the blue watercolor. I placed the Wave stamp high to the top of the panel. I blended True Navy on the watercolored area for a continuous look and added some clear glitter on the wave. I partially die cut the wave using coordinating die. I die cut a textured light blue cardstock in the same shape to mat the wave panel and glued them together. The sentiment is from Mermaid Vibes. I stamped it in True Navy on a strip of heavyweight white cardstock, added Lemon Drop on the left end by blending and glued it on the wave panel.
For the underwater scene I heat embossed the swimming mermaids from Mermaid Vibes in Rose Gold, colored them using Sparkle markers and fussy cut them. You can use the coordinating die which is available now. I then heat embossed the fishes and sea plants in Liquid Platinum and Rose Gold, and the sentiment from Palm Tree set in Liquid Platinum. The panel was matted with the same light blue cardstock like the wave panel. I cut one more light blue panel and glued the wave panel and the underwater panel on both sides to assemble the tri-fold card. I foam mounted the mermaids under the sea. To finish off I sponged the sun ray in Lemon Drop using a stencil and added some sequins from Glass Slippers Round confetti as bubbles.
This was my first tri-fold card :) !
