A Simple Slider Card

i have attempted, and failed, to make slider cards a few times with the canadian penny, which is no longer in circulation anyway.

out of desperation i bought some MFT spin and slide discs and i’m happy enough with the results, although this elephant (wplus9 bubble talk) doesn’t quite spin like i had hoped. i created a very clean and simple card just to focus on the technique. for years my style has been to feature one image so now i need to practice creating scenes.

i sponged distress inks for the sky and grass but i painted the elephant with twinkling H2Os and added a sentiment from the Wplus9 unforgettable set.

i’m playing along with these challenges:

Just Peachy

i’m playing along with the My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 274 and, as usual, mine is a literal interpretation.

i did change one thing though – instead of my usual watercoloured image, i used an MFT blueprint flower die as the focal point. i’ve been practicing making crinoline flowers, thanks to the very talented Tammy Tutterow and her step-by-step tutorial.

the square and this flower are coloured with pink and yellow distress inks that mixed together to create a nice orange, which is my least favourite colour, but this one’s more peachy so i like it. i added flower soft to the die cut centre; i used the Die-Namics Dainty Lace Border Die and decided to not discard the remaining piece and use it to offset the lace. to finish it off, i attached the flower to a MFT stitched circle and added the sentiment.
