Custom Background using dies

Hello Friends

Back again with another card for a crafty friend hope she likes it however i will be giving it to her in person as she does not have a dedicated blog or page for her work only her facebook profile but that is personal however i will be linking to one of her albums where her work is dispalyed, her name is Amishi Unadkat and she does amazing work in 3dorigami and other indian crafts.

 This is one of those cards that are extremely satisfying as they make you think and stretch your mind. For this card i used Stiched rectangle frame dies from Peek-a-boo designs to create a background of my own.

 Once I had the background frame ready, I traced it on another piece of card stock. and coloured in with  water colour pencils from Faber Castell.  I kept it very sketchy to keep a very artsy look. and the shading is in different directions to add interest.. also left areas blank for the same reason. Then went over the entire panel with Wink-of stella clear glitter pen to add some shine.

Added double sided tape to the panel which was tedious but i wanted to add dimension to the panel. Then stuck the panel onto the the coloured piece and added it to a blue card base. Next added the Best friend using the My Best friend die set from sizzix. added shimmer and coated it with glossy accents.

Hope you enjoyed :
