I have made an easel card and a matching keyring as an Easter gift for my childrens teachers. I love this Iris image. I resized the image to 7 cm by 13cm and I added a verse from John 11:25,26 to make it relevant to Easter. You could put a sympathy greeting or a Happy Birthday greeting over the top if you wish. This image is so versitile.
I have made two projects to show you how versitile the image is. I have made a shrink plastic keyring and an Easel card.
To make the keyring I firstly punched a hole in the corner of a piece of frosted shrink plastic.
I then used masking tape to adhere the frosted shrink plastic to the image that I printed. I traced over it with a black pen. However I did not trace the writing at this point.
I then coloured in the image and background with promarkers. Once I had coloured the image I traced over the verse.
I then shrunk the plastic with a heat gun. I added my keyring and I added some ribbon to make it more funky.
For my card I used the same image that I had traced over. So this is really a cost effective gift and card.
I used the same colour promarkers to colour the image. As you can see they become much darker once you shrink the shrink plastic.
I used H2O's to colour in the background on the card. I then added some Shabby green distress ink and a stamped border.
I used K&co, papermania and MME papers. I made an easel card and added a bouquet of irises and some ribbon to finsh off my card.
This angle shows the glimmer you get with the H2O's.
