So lets get stated. The kit this month was color me happy. Included in the kit, besides the wonderful paper and stamps, was 2 sheets of 12 X 12 Yupo paper. Yupo is weird paper that is really a plastic that is porous. It accepts Alcohol inks like no other. So, after my laborious task of creating the pop up, in my previous post (take a look if you haven't) I decided to Yupo my way through this blog hop
I love this card, it is classy, elegant and perfectly flat for mailing.
I started with the top image, but 1/2 way through I lost one of my panels and started over with the bottom one. I should not be so messy and I wouldn't lose things!!
I cut this panel into 4th, then chose the parts that I like and using a 1.5 " square cute out the Yupo background. I mounted this onto slightly smaller fun foam and centered them on a blue cardstock from kit, using a 1.75 inch die. Placed the 4 squares onto a white card base and then onto the same blue cardstock in an A2 size. I added some sequins in blue. Lastly Stamped and embossed the Thank you on Velum and centered it between the top and bottom panels. Lovely I think.
Well this was the most fun and little "out there".
I doodles all over the background with a black pen and a silver pen.
Then I glued little gems and enamel dots onto the "flowers".

I found a blue "dot or circle" in another panel, cut it out, doodled it into a flower and popped it into the corner on a wiggler. Added a dragonfly (made the same was as in the pop up blog post, added a sentiment. Placed it on a white A2 card base. Voila!!
The background on this card said it all. Nothing else required. That is often the hardest with these cards. When you just want it that background to be the whole card. Trying to add something, often detracts from the background.
Let's see what I did.
How did I make this. First it is mostly Copic Various liquid. My secret tool to create this flowing image. . . . . .
So you drop on your ink and blow like crazy. It dries rapidly and does not pool. A dry air can, the kind you use to clean electronics works as well, but moves things way fast, sometimes too fast.
Almost looks like a flower. Very soft, and subtle compared to the Ranger Alcohol inks.
Trimmed it up a bit, added a black ribbon and sequins.
The sentiment is perfect!
Stamped and fussy cut the tag, using the letters to guide the shape
This was popped up on fun Foam . Done!!
