Hi everyone, today I have another Jenine’s Mindful Art Guest Design Project to share with you all and this time I’m creating a reveal wheel card!
I started my project with the reveal wheel base that is also used in this video:
(the video is in Dutch but I think it’s quite easy to follow, just don’t poke a hole in your design paper!).
The die set that is used to create the 10x10 cm reveal wheel card is by Crealies (Cardzz CLCZ303 Reveal Wheel Card + Spinning Wheel Card die set).
I used a craft coloured card base and the design paper on today’s project is from Jenine’s New Awakening line (JMA-NA-PP01). I edged the design paper with brown ink (this one is Spectrum Noir Water-Proof Pebble, use any brown ink you like) in combination with a foam applicator tool. For the wheel part I’m using dark anthracite coloured card stock which matches the colour of the text stickers nicely (the sticker quote is from Jenine’s Time to Relax stickerboek STICKERJMA05).
As my focal point I’m using the sunflower from the JMA-ES-STAMP66 stamp set in combination with the two butterfly images from the JMA-ES-STAMP67 stamp set. I stamped both the sunflower and the butterflies onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using black ink and I directly afterwards heat embossed using clear embossing powder. This way my lines stay black and crisp no matter how much water I add.
Now I can colour the images using some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals, these are pigment powders that you can watercolour with. Of course I know that sunflowers are more on the yellow site but with the desing paper that I picked I figured that a more orangy tone would look nicer. I picked the colours: Tears on my Pillow Tangerine, Glitzy Magical Gleaming Gold (you don’t really need this one for this particular image, I’m adding a yellow colour later on that already contains shimmer), Yellow Rose of Texas and Frosty Forest Green. By mixing the orange with the green I’m creating a nice brown for the heart of the sunflower. I paint the image using these watercolour paints, a small brush and water (to fade out the colours). I add as many layers until I’m happy with the result, drying in between layers.
After the colouring is done and dry I’m adding back in some highlights using a white gel pen.
Next I fussy cut the images leaving a small border.
Time to put my project together: I made some tears in the base design paper and adhered that paper onto my craft coloured card base using liquid glue. Onto this base I adhered my reveal wheel using two millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut images on top, also using foam tape (one millimetre).
And that is it for today’s fun reveal wheel card project! I wish you a creative day!
