Awhile ago Lawn Fawn came out with the adorable Magic Color Slider interactive die set and while cute I didn’t see myself using it often. However, the more and more I thought about it I realized it would be fun to create an extended scene using this interactive die. So, today I’m sharing a card I made doing exactly that.
Lawn Fawn’s Toadally Awesome stamp set is so darling and I think it makes the cutest spring and summer themed cards. For today’s card, I stamped every image, except for the cute little log, onto Neenah Solar White, 110 lb, cardstock and colored them using Copic markers.
Using Lawn Fawn’s Magic Color Slider I followed the assembly instructions however when it came to stamping the images on acetate I went ahead and stamped them onto Neenah Solar White, 110 lb, cardstock instead. When I assembled the elements together I used three frame elements to create enough hight so the back panel could easily slide in and out of the card. However, next time I think I’ll try using Craft Foam instead.
To create the water for the card base I blended the following Distress Oxide inks Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean, Stormy Sky, and Blueprint Sketch. However, I couldn’t ink blend over my images without creating a ton of masks so instead I used Copic markers to create the water on the focal panels.
Sentiment and Finishing Touches
As last steps, I used the ripple images from the stamp set to give the water a sense of movement and a Tombo’s N15 Dual Brush Maker to create trails for the dragonflies.
I hope this card gives you inspiration to use an old die set in a new way. Thanks for stopping by!
