Fancy folds

   Another Flourishes challenge card for you this am- the Tuesday challenge this week is for a fancy fold or motion card. This is  a 3D portrait die from Accu Cut that was designed by my friend Vicki Chrisman -
   I had some oppses on this one but in the end it turned out ok - I ended up distressing it with a bit of gesso because the background on the inside turned out too dark - I stamped the flower image as a background in walnut stain and it was way too dark so I sponged the gesso over it until it only shows a little and used red instead of walnut stain on the front which looked a lot better - a bit of gesso on the front just to tie it all together.
   The stamp is from Flourishes of course - stamped onto tan cardstock and colored with prismacolor pencils. The phrases are also from Flourishes - embossed with red onto the DP and layered to some textured coordinations paper.
   Check out the challenge here -
    Now that I am caught up on my challenges  - puppy says its way past time for her walk.....
   Take care

Tera, this is gorgeous, and you did some fab coloring on that pretty image! I had to laugh about the oopsies, though...I do that all the time! It's why I love distressing so much--it can hide just about anything. :)
