Here's an example of another way you can use those vintage dictionary scans (which I'm in the process of linking as PDFs, though I think I need to reformat the files, 'cuz the uploading has been giving me a heck of a time--for hours!) Emailing them wouldn't work either, grrrrrrrrrr...I'll have to try tomorrow. I'm still not well; I think I have mono, just joking I hope...LOL... so... I'm behind in emails & blurfin'--Missing Y'all!
The Label-shaped Frame:
This time the Merry Christmas text DP is a frame, that I made by...
- Folding a piece of paper in 4
- Cutting a corner in a fancy shape
- Unfolding & tracing onto the text cardstock
- Cutting away the center with a craft knife
- Edged the frame shape with silver Zig Painty pen
Usin' the templates: I made the three sizes so you could layer them if you like.
I like to print them on the back of whatever paper & cut em out. then you don't see the lines. But if you are comfortable using a craft knife (exacto or hobby blade) then that can be even better because you can use the frame & the inside label shape. :O)
- Emboss the truck in silver on Watercolour paper
- Make a mask & emboss the tree in Always Artichoke
- Keep mask on & emboss snowflakes
- Colour using SU markers & a waterbrush
- Add puffy snow with a velvet pen
- Add silver Zigpainty to the bumpers
- Add Crystal Lacquer to the window
- Put large silver brads for hubcaps
To mask the line for the snow, I just used two torn post-it notes & sponged on soft sky ink to make the sky. That technique is repeated on the main card (but sponging the ground with white craft ink instead) to have it tie in with the image, like the snow line carries off the side o' the card... :O)
