Using a file from SVGCuts, Happy Trails Kit - I love how this turned out. As much as I'd originally wanted it to look like a rainboot, I think it turned out quite nicely.
I used glossy white photo paper (12x12) for all the pieces and used the eclips2 and eCal2 to make those perfect cut pieces. Yes, all the pieces for this project started out as white. After putting the basic boot together, setting the extra panels and taps to the side; with the help of my Craftwell eBrush with the Siphon attachment and some bright yellow ink I add some alcohol to, I sprayed all of the pieces and let dry. (check to make sure that your ink will dry on the glossy stock quickly. )
Paint all the extra pieces after you've done the embossing. When you add the color, the ink adds some extra depth to the piece. I was in the mood for some poppies so I grabbed a stencil from my stash and using some SN markers, colored in the poppies using the eBrush and the markers on the now yellow side panels for the boot.
Following the kit directions, complete the boot.
For the poppies, I cut some tissue paper circles (you could use some nesting dies to cut multiple layers) or your electronic die cutting machine. I used 2 different sizes for each poppy... make three different sizes.
Using the ebrush and the siphon, color in the poppies the desired color. You can color again once it's dried using a waterbased ink for deeper color. Crunch and add more color if you wish. The centers are white paper and colored with a black/dk gray ink. (you could use markers if you don't have the siphon adapter. Be sure to spray everything using a box to catch the over-spray. Wear a mask as well if you're mixing your ink with alcohol and work in a well-ventilated space.
The poppies were sprayed AFTER they were wired with stems. My poppies have two or three layers of tissue as petals and 3 layers for the stamen center.
Thanks for dropping by. Hoping you've got some crafting time built in this week.
