At the start of the class I gave each person a card sized piece of this DSP, showed them a couple of ways to colour it and we all had a little practice. I had to drag them away from that to get started on the class projects, but we used this to fill in any "waiting time" that occurred when using the stamps or framelits. And, they all wanted some of this by the end of the night!
I made 8 of these for my customers in the class (just to save time for the main focus of the class- colouring) and it was a quick and easy job using the Gift Bag Punch Board.
Our project for the class was to create a tag for the bag and for this we started with a 2 inch wide strip of basic black card that was punched at the top with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and at the base with the Banner Triple Punch. Next we used the new and totally awesome Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder (find this on page 47 of the Occasions Catalogue)
I love that this folder gives you different textures on either side of the card stock so you can choose which ever works best with your design.
I also added some Clear Wink of Stella to the petals. Love a little Wink!
I've left some of the strokes in the flower petals un-blended (is that a word?) as the stronger colour gives greater depth. I used Real Red, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight w/c pencils over the flower image that had been stamped in Melon Mambo ink. I also added some black.
We did all our additional colouring with the w/c pencils and the blending, before cutting out the shapes using the Stylish Stems Framelits.
The tag is attached using Whisper White Thick Bakers Twine.
There is one more project to see and I will do a separate post for that one too.
