Color Throw Down Challenge #473
For my card I decided to try something I haven't yet done, which is try my hand at making a slider card. I know I know I am really late to the game on this one, but to be honest I was a bit intimidated by them and rightfully so, I had a heck of a time with it. The little figure on the slider disk just does not want to stay in side. I don't know what i did wrong but man oh man was it a learning experience.
I love how the card turned out but frustrated still that I haven't got the slider to stay in properly.
I started out with the snow background , I cut down a piece of Neehna Desert storm card stock to 5¾ x5¾, pulled out the Newtons Nook snowflake stencil my texture pasts both opaque and transparent and some glitter. I mixed the transparent and opaque texture paste together to make the paste more pliable, then I added a lot of glitter to it as I wanted to make sure it really showed up.
Once I was done with the snowflake background, I set it aside to draw and stamped out the cute images from the “You melt my heart”set from My Favorite things, Then I pulled out my Zig Clean Color real brush markers and a water brush and went to town. Once the coloring was done I fussy cut the imagines out and set them aside as I worked on the rest of the card.
The card took shape with the die cutting,I used the lawn fawn stitched squares, the smaller stack to cut the base of my scene. Once that was die cut out I used the stitched hull side to cut my square panel in half creating the snowy hills. I did this twice so I would get the right hight and shape for the hills. I took some olive card stock from mys stash and die cut some trees from the forest border die, all in creating my scene. All of the above dies were from Lawn fawn and linked below.
I then took my mist and stamped the ice image from the stamp set on to what would be the top portion of the hills, using earmark and then heat embossed it using some silver embossing powder from ranger. From there I die cur the track for the slider in the middle of the ice also using the lawn fawn slider die
Now it was time to assemble the card, and let me tell you I used a lot of foam tape for this card. i used it for the back of the scene, to create the slider panel and to adherer each layer to the card base. It really pops in person and wow does it weigh a bit.
Finally to finish off the card I decided to do the inside, I pulled out a couple of my distress oxides, twisted citron and warn lipstick and stenciled some snowflakes in opposite corners and then adhered another little kitty on skates just to finish it off.
I was really really happy with. how it all turned out. I hope you enjoy and get inspired and
