Blueprint and butterfly Accordion by Rachel

Hello there! Its Rachel here today and I want to share two cards from the April shows with you today. You may have seen the second one on fb before the show but I thought I would show it here anyway.

The first card is the main event...its a 6 panael accordion card. To make this I added distress oxides and water  to my craft mat and made a large (A3) masterboard using a mop up technique. Once dry I cut this into 6 pieces each measuring 9cm by 13cm. There was plenty of card left over to be used another time. Each of these 6 pieces I then stamped an image on and coloured using water colour pencils. I also added some sentiments.

Here are the main 4 panels...

And the two panels that formed the back of the crd leaving room to write on two blank panels. The accordion itself was made by cutting an A3 piece of card in half along the short edge. This card was then folded in half and each half was folded in half again. 

This last card was made by simply inking through a stencil and then adding the stamped images on top - colouring was again by watercolour pencils.

I hope you have enjoyed reading about my samples.

Stay safe,

rachel xx
