PILE IT ON CHALLENGE #9 - TRI-FOLD




This week's challenge at PIO is to make a Tri-fold card.  This is the first Tri-fold card I have ever made.

It was hard to take a photo showing how the flap element when closed hooks under the middle flower of the bottom layer, revealing another decorative flower layer on top.  Again when open and standing up it also reveals the embellished flowers on main part of card.

As I'd been extremely tired this week having slepted practically for 2 days and nights I decided to use an image I'd already coloured from Mo's Digital Pencil.





Techniques:

Medium:
Copics and Prismas

Papers:
Digital paper - Polka dots
Plain - Crafters Companion

Punches:
Woodward Leaf punch
Woodward Small daisy punch

Dies used:
Marianne flourish die
Embellishments:
Pearls (Quixotic Paperie)

MY FAVOURITE THING


This is a digi image from Phindy's Place and one of my favourite digital stores.

Again this is one of the many images I've already coloured but not made into a card either because I couldn't find any papers I liked or the design didn't feel right!

This image reminds me of my little brother he was never happier than when he was hammering nails into bits of wood.

Copics and Prisma pencils
Fine liner pen for border


Papers:

Patterned papers (Digital - this scrap has been in my crafting stash so long I've forgotton where it's from)
