Envelope - Easily Done!
Placed this stencil on top of the envelope.
Then with a make-up sponge, I dab it on one of the many ink pads I have and then I ink over the stencil.
Thereafter, I use a black marker and outline the pineapple.
These are the 2 stencils used
I do the same method as I did for the envelope.
For the words and lion, I use a variety of colors. I don't just stick to one color.
I then used one of the stickles - the glittery type, to give the body of the lion some shine.
I used foils for the flowers.
I run these dies through my Sizzix machine.
This is the machine.
I then use this piercer to...
pierce holes into the centre of the flowers. I then use one of the brads to secure the flowers.
I then use zots in size medium to secure the flowers on the card.
I then place some gold studs around the flower.
Now, I'm going to show you how I do this lovely flower pot.
Stencil used. As you can see, I use the middle image.
I then use my 2 of the stylus to emboss the image
and I use the metal piece to pick up the silver and gold studs.
I use my stylus to go over the back part of the paper so when I flip over,
I'll have an embossed image on the 2nd page!
I then use some stickles - liquid pearls type to color the popped up parts.
Lastly, I placed some silver studs around it.
I use a black marker to write some greetings and I'm done!
I'm going to buy markers of different colors next time. I hope you enjoyed reading this entry as much as I've enjoyed doing this card. In the meantime, Happy Lunar New Year!
