This is another card I have been meaning to make for a while from the Splitcoast Stampers technique section, called a Tunnel Card. The paper on the front page is from a new range just released by Papermania & they are just lovely!. The tag was cut using my Cricut and the Tags, Bags, Boxes & more cartridge. The flower image is from the Dawn Bibby clear range and the oval was cut using the XCut shape cutter system.
Inside, I really had fun making the background colour. First I stamped a flower randomly in Versamark, then clear embossed these. I then used three pastel shades of chalk ink and randomly stamped these over the card using pieces of cotton wool, I then used a paper towel to polish the ink off the embossed images, so there are faint flowers in the background (not sure if the photo does this justice). The main images were stamped using purple brilliance ink, and watercoloured using watercolour pencils.
Have had so much fun with these, I'll have to go back over to Splitcoast and see what else I can have a go at - might have to wait until after I've sorted out the easter cards, mind you I could have a go at the treat box again with some easter eggs in it & done in yellow hmm.....
