Julia here today with a card I made using the Die Cut Relief technique for AVJ's November card making post.Here's how I put this card together.
I got out some dies that would create a layered scene: trees, a fence, a wreath and a sentiment. I also got out some dimensional sticker snowflakes. I used a background embossing folder (Weathered from Taylored Expressions) to emboss the water color paper panel before layering the die cuts over it. I cut all the dies out of watercolor paper and adhered them over the embossed panel using a Matte Medium.Once dry, I brushed over the whole panel with the Matte MediumBecause the stickers were silver I went over the panel once again, this time with Gesso so it would all be white.When Gesso was dry, I started adding layers of acrylic paint. First, I dry brushed the panel with Manganese Blue Hue, being sure to get into all the cracks and crevices and removing any pools of paint in corners or depressions.After this layer dried, I dry brushed with Burnt Sienna, just hitting the high spots and open spaces, not fully covering the blue.After this layer was dry, I dry brushed the final layer of paint using Titanium White, brushing just across the raised pieces and open spaces, turning the panel and brushing from all sides so all the edges of the die cuts were brushed with white.I trimmed the panel and layered it to a white card base.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing how I put this card together.
