Hi There! It has been a while since I blogged, so here I am again. I made a lovely 'fold out card' with different Ranger Ink products.
I want to show you the video I made, below the video is a list of products and a short description how I made this.

Take 2 pieces of Dylusions Mixed Media Cardstock and cut horizontally, size becomes 4.25"x11". Prepare 2 pieces with Dina Wakley Media Gesso (white).
Think about which colours to use. Therefore I prepared 2 backgrounds with acrylic paints. I created one background in yellow / orange colours and one background in green colours. The other 2 pieces of cardstock I didn't prepare with gesso. I choose complementary colours (so, that means blue colours which I am going to combine with the yellow prepared background, and pick to combine with the green prepared background). I made the backgrounds with Acrylic Inks.
The acrylic ink backgrounds I masked with circles and black paint. For the blue background I masked around the circles, so I created 3 circles. After that I stencilled some white and sky paints on the black. Put some tissue wrap on, a yellow stamped heart and a yellow painted scribbly bird. Text stamp with embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
For the pink acrylic ink background I made black circles, and stencilled in the circles with the Bullseye stencil. I stencilled outside the circles with black and white paint. Put some tissue wrap on, some media tape, a green stamped heart and a green painted scribbly bird. Text stamp with embossing ink and embossed with white embossing powder.
The acrylic painted backgrounds I used some stencils on and after that I put some focal point images in the same colours as my ink backgrounds. So, on the yellow background I made a focal point in blue colours. And on the green background a focal point in pink colours. I attached the pink background on the top side of the green background with double sided sticky tape. And attached the blue background on the yellow background. Like this:
I attached a little piece of cardstock on the back (where the two focal points come together), to bind the 2 pieces together. I painted all the backs black, and added some white paint through stencils. This is the whole card, folded out:
The front of the card I decorated with a tag (with a leftover of blue ink), Dina Wakley tape and a Grungy Star which I stamped with embossing ink and embossed with Gun Metal embossing powder. And some 'big chat' stickers.
If you have any questions, just ask! I solemnly swear to blog more often 🙂
