Grungy Monday 12
Studio L3, but I think we're settled in Oregon enough to do a little art. This week's challenge is a cool resist technique from our friend Tim Holtz. I don't have all my TH supplies with me, but I think I have enough to at least give my interpretation. This is going to be my mom's birthday card next month (shhhhh....don't tell her). I started with some K&Company paper and cut a tri-fold card, leaving the front a solid 4x5.5. I stamped some chinese lanterns on the front for the resist tech and then added some more paper, a doily, some Recollections bling and one of my favorite Happy Birthday stamps from Club Scrap's Be Wonderful UM sheet. On the inside panels of the trifold, I stamped some more lanterns; raised a little bird, added a rub on swirl and a torn panel from a scrap at the bottom.
Thought I'd add some quick and dirty instructions for the folds and cuts on this card for those of you interested:
Start with a 5.5" x 12" card base (this will fit in a regular A2 envelope when folded up)
score at 4", 6", 8" and 10"; make a cut with your craft knife and ruler 1 1/2" from the top and bottom edge starting at the 4" score line and ending at the 10" score line. Fold the score lines in opposite directions and decorate the panels.
