Card size: A2 (4.25 x 5.5”)
Measurements: includes the blue borders, Cheesecloth panel - 1 13/16” wide, polished stone pink - 4” x 2 ¼”, oval – 3 5/16” x 2 ½”
-The out of the box image using Nestabilites is done using a technique similar (I omitted a step or two) to Julie’s which you can find here if you need photos and I’ll explain how I achieved the technique for those that don’t wish to leave SCS for directions:
I lie the Nestabilities die cut side up over the image and mark with a pencil on each side of the image that will be out of the box (you’re marking on the inside of the die cut) and also make a couple small marks on the top or bottom for easy die cut line up. I cut the image slightly further than the mark to allow for the thickness of the metal. Flip the die over and slide it under the portion which was just cut and secure with repositional tape if needed (I use the blue painters tape). Run through the machine to cut then emboss and remove the die cut, erase the pencil marks and it’s ready to color. I color after cutting just in case I make a mistake.
-Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps were used to color the images. This is the same technique as Gamsol.
-I did the polished stone technique using Stampin Up reinkers and alcohol for the panel under the image. I then sprayed the panel with alcohol to lighten it but once it dried I wished I’d left it alone but it’ll do! This panel was also embossed on the edges using the Scor-Pal.
