Tomorrow is February 1st, and we all know what that means…the CTMH Spring/Summer 2014 Idea Book is released to the public. The papers in this IB are beautiful. Today, I thought I would make something using one of the new packets called Ariana (X7179B.)
I will let the papers speak for themselves. Ariana is a vintage look collection that features Crystal Blue, Outdoor Denim and White Daisy. It also features Ariana Green, Ariana Gray and a beautiful color called Ariana Coral.
For me, cameo’s have always screamed vintage so I thought that a cameo image would be perfect to introduce this paper packet.
I used my CTMH Artiste Cartridge to make the cameo. First I cut the frame in Outdoor Denim. You can find it on the “W” key using the Accent 2 feature. I cut it at 2 1/4 inches. Next I cut out the same image but 1/4 inch larger and in White Daisy. I did this because I wanted the an oval that would be a tad easier to work with for my background. Then, with the “W” key, Accent 2 feature and shift, I cut the cameo face back on 2 1/4 inches. I positioned the cameo on the White Daisy oval and began to sponge around the cameo…I used it as a mask. I sponged heavily with Crystal Blue and then lightly with Outdoor Denim. If you try this, make sure that you do not move the cameo face or your image will be fuzzy. Lastly I very lightly sponged the white daisy cameo face with Whisper ink for a little depth. Then just adhere your oval inside the frame. There you go…your cameo is done!
Just a few more things about this card. The sparkle flourish is from the Sparkles Clear Flourishes – Small pack (Z1812) and the sentiment is from a set called Sincere Expressions (A1146.) Oh...almost forgot...that is Silver Shimmer tape (Z1799) across the tops. So, tomorrow, don’t forget to visit my website to see all the new goodies CTMH has to offer. For Now, Happy Crafting!
