I hope all of my friends and family are having a great weekend!
The Creativation Trade Show is going on right now with companies like Simon Says Stamps, Spellbinders and Mama Elephant showing off their newest product line for 2020!
I don't have a booth, but I do have a great new die product available NOW! TheDouble Dial Die 1and it's available to U.S. customers from my new storeTLCDesigns.shop! If you are not in the U.S. however, you can find it at the7KidsCrafts.com because they ship worldwide!
Created with Lavinia Stamps and the gel press with other small Lavinia stamps too!
This is what makes the magic! The Double Dial Die 1! This sample project shows Zanor the king of the Pegasus leaping through the forest over the lake to meet his queen Sirlus on the most majestic of snowy nights!
For today's project I used the cute frame that comes with the Double Dial Die and double cut it for sturdiness. Then I cut two dials and four arms. The more sound your foundation and parts, the better this interactive mechanism will work.
I used my Gel press with the Colorbox and brusho inks first and let dry. I went around the edges of the frame with coordinating ink and sponge and began my stamping. The background was designed with the bridge first which I colored in just a bit with some brown Colorbox. I tore some printer paper and used it to ink the mountains in the background then stamped some trees above where the Pegasus's were flying. The yellow was brought into the center with Colorbox ink and a round sponge to simulate the reflection of the moon in the water.
The background brings this project to life with mushrooms in the foreground on the bottom and some vines hanging from the top. Most of the trees and mountains and mushrooms were brushed over with the gel pen to give it that winter feel and the project was decorated.
To complete the project, I stamped the two illustrations on Kraft paper and embellished them with gel pen glitter and fussy cut them. Then I assembled the mechanism and adhered the illustrations! Raising the topper onto a card base completed the project!
