|I'll be perfectly honest I like simple layouts and these fancy folds are not simple layouts!! Bec has a great die that makes variations on this side stepping card, it is here! Don't have it, but do have simple template. Used it for guide. Here working it out on my scoreboard. Took two goes scoring to get it right.. wanted it bigger than template.|
|And being me, I went for complex everything else too! I used the Frantic Stamper Dies - Chevron Borders & Edgers (2) to make a whole sheet for background of alternating chevrons! Glued them down one at time, kept them in order as cut the individual ones, so as to keep *colour graduations, yes fiddly plus but great effect. *used pre-coloured sheet.|
|Base for image done, then cut it with largest die of SB Pierced Rectangles|
|Die cut a pink scalloped base with Spellbinder Petite scallop (Disc.) and one image with Cottage Cutz Stitched Oval die (they fit spellbinder oval dies very well). |
While still in stitched die, ink coloured the background to match colours used on other image already coloured with Tombow markers, and gold watercolour. Fussy cut around the coloured dragon image, cutting into the folds of the image, and then lay on shaping mat face down, shaped the image with shaping tool to get 3D effect with minimal layers.
Attached to base image with silicon glue and allow to dry.
See here for Tutorial to do it this way.
