I've been playing about recently with 'map-fold' cards and this one is made using 12 x 12" cardstock. However, I have adapted one to fit on an A4 piece of card, more of that another time. My original inspiration came from a tutorial on the Whiff of Joy site. They are full of brilliant tutorials so go take a peek and learn some new skills.
So onto my card. The top picture is the front as the card is closed. I've used the current Truly Scrumptious sketch to base my design on. The doorway is from Lavinia Stamps and I've used copics to give it some colour : E40, 41, 43 and RV02 with blender. The curly gardenia flower is from Crafty Emma's Store as are the wonderful DP from a Prima pack called 'Sweet Fairy'.
This next piccie is the inside, again I've followed the Truly Scrumptious sketch for the middle section. The image is Sweet Pea, Blue Eye Fairy and I've coloured her with copics: E21, 93 Promarker Satin (skin), E50, 51, 53, 43 (hair), B02 (eyes) RV02, 06, Promarker Maroon (flowers and gems), BV02, 04 (choker and dress). I placed some skeleton leaves behind to represent her wings.
For the purpose of this next piccie I've laid the card on its back cos when it is stood upright the centre panel automatically flops down.
So as it is now, the top panel is the reverse of the middle section with the Sweet Pea fairy on. I've edged it with a mini fairy from Crafty Indivudals, and flower sprig by Bo Bunny.
Apologies but another verse that I can't remember its origin.
I'm entering this into the following challenges:-
Truly Scrumptious #50 - sketch
Charisma Cardz wk6 - Mythical/Fantasy
Moving Along With The Times - Photo Inspiration
