Escape the Ordinary & Folk Tree | Caly Person

Escape the Ordinary & Folk Tree | Caly Person

Hello!  Caly here with two cards featuring Escape the Ordinary and Folk Tree.

The first card uses the Escape the Ordinary stamp set coordinating dies.

Although the scene die keeps certain images in a stationary position, I believe that your style will still come out with the colors and mediums you choose.  For my background, I decided to play with alcohol inks to create a dusk-like scene.  

Alcohol Ink colors used:  Cool Peri, Stonewashed, Aqua, Salmon.

I die-cut the scene die using Neenah Solar White cardstock and stamped the images using Momento Tuxedo Black ink.  I then used Copic markers to color the images on this panel.  

Copics colors used: C00, C0, C2, Y0000, Y00, YG06, G03, G09

before adhering the two panels together, I also stamped the mountain using two brown inks - a darker shade towards the bottom for some added depth.  

For my second card, I used the Folk Tree stamp set.  

To create this card, I stamped the various parts in different color ink.  Then I used similar colors of Polychromos colored pencils to give it more dimension and interest.  

Polychromos colors used:  

178 Nougat, 168 Earth Green Yellowish, 156 Cobalt Green, 161 Phthalo Green, 134, Crimson, 123 Fuchsia, 129 Pink Madder Lake.

For the birds, I decided to emboss using a gold glitter powder and fussy cut around the images to add them on the card using foam tape.  I also embossed the sentiment on some vellum using regular gold embossing powder.  

To complete this card, I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops in Blizzard White in various places.

I really hope you enjoyed these projects and that you'll have a wonderful day!
