Dutch Iris Card Tutorial

well only 7 days to Christmas now, we will all be tucking into our Turkey or nut roasts this time next week, so time to start thinking about the new year, here's a really easy card to get you in the mood for spring,

The stamp is from the Heartfelt Creations range Dutch Iris Blossom 3 Collection and is called Dutch Iris frame stamp.

you will need

White card
Black card
7'' x 6'' Card Blank
Heartfelt Creations Dutch Iris Frame Stamp
Black versamark pad
Silver embossing powder
Blue and Green Alcohol Pens
Gold cosmic shimmer mica powder
Blue cosmic shimmer mica powder
Silver border peel offs
Tim Holt's Distress ink pad Broken China

Step 1
Take some white card and stamp your image onto it with a black versamark pad then cover the stamped image with silver embossing powder , melt the powder and leave to cool for a moment when your image has cooled you can colour it in
I used Spectrum Noirs on the project
Blues TB1, TB5, TB7
Greens CG2, DG2

Step 2
When you have coloured your image, cut away all the white card and mount onto some black card then onto some white card that has been dusted with around the edges with your Tim Holts Broken China blue.
I have stamped the sentiment again with black versamark and embossed that with gold and silver embossing powder and then cut out and layered on top. I also edged this with Broken China blue

Step 3
Take a piece of black card slightly bigger than the white card you just mounted your image on and cut into 4 equal rectangles then take some of your Gold and Blue mica powders ( you only need a little bit) and add a little water to them so they become paint, do this on a tile or plate not straight into the pot!!

Step 4
Scrunch up your clingfilm into a loose ball and dab this into the colours and then dab lightly all over your black card, I went with gold first and then blue, just keep going till you are happy with the look then leave to dry for a few minutes

Step 5
Mount your now painted rectangles onto some white card which has been dusted again with Tim Holts Broken China and border the edges with silver peel off borders. Mount onto black card again and then onto your card blank.
