It is day two of Night and Day and Dawn is here today to show
us what she has been up to.
She has made two beautiful cards in different colourways.
Don't they look different??
It is amazing what changing colours can do!
This is what Dawn says.....
"I've made two cards for my project this week.
I knew straight away I wanted to use this new Celtic Dreams Die.
There are so many ways of using this die with many techniques
and mediums that I sent myself dizzy. So I decided to go
simple and striking and using alcohol inks as its been a while
since I played with them. Just a note too, these die's
are a dream to cut. Very impressed.
So to make ....
Choose some alcohol inks and blending solution and put drops
on the applicator and create some backgrounds.
For my day card I used; Pool, Sunshine Yellow, Citrus and Gold
Mixative. For my night card I used; Indigo, Purple Twilight,
Mermaid and Silver Mixative.
Indigo and Mermaid are two new colours and are very strong.
You don't need as much on your applicators when using with
older colours of alcohol inks.
Choose which backgrounds you want to use.
Next using Celtic die, cut two each from white and black card.
Glue a white onto black and black onto white. Slightly offsetting
them as shown in pic. Glue to your background and cut around
Next add details to your top die cuts. Use markers and black pen
on the white card die cut image and Interference paints and silver
pen on the black card die cut image. Punch some tiny flowers and
colour to match your image details.Glue around the branches.
Cut three squares of card going up in size for layers to go behind
your main image. I used white card and coloured the edges with
Pro Markers. Cheaper and easier to match with your focal point.
You could use coloured card. I also coloured the front edges of
the card blank and inside so it looked like another two layers of colour.
Stick all your layers together and then onto your card blank.
Finish by embellishing with some coloured gems".
How lovely are they??
