Shine - a Summer Card with a twist(ed ribbon)

A summer-card: the image is from the TGF-Set "Rain, Snow or Shine" and colored with Distress Ink. The sunglasses are coated with Glossy Accents.

The underlayed watercolor paper is stamped with Swirls in Encore Metallic Ink (Honeydew).

Eine Sommer-Karte: das Image ist aus dem TGF-Set "Rain, Snow or Shine" und mit Distress Ink coloriert. Die Sonnenbrille ist mit Glossy Accents bestrichen.

Das untergelegte Aquarellpapier ist mit Swirls in Encore Metallic Ink (Honeydew) bestempelt. 
The butterfly is stamped out of tracing paper and dabbed with metallic ink for a shiny look. The edges I distressed with blue Versamark.

The ribbon is 6 mm wide satin ribbon that I braided. You'll find small tutorial here.

Der ausgestanzte Schmetterling ist aus Transparentpapier und auch mit Metallic-Ink betupft. Die Ränder habe ich mit blauem Versamark gefärbt.

Das Band ist 6 mm- breites Satin-Band, das ich geflochten habe. Ein kleines Tutorial dazu gibts hier.

All elements are mounted with 3D adhesive pads. On the inside I added kraft paper.

 Alle Elemente sind mit 3D-Klebepads aufgesetzt. Innen habe ich Kraftpapier eingeklebt.

Deine Karte ist wunderschön geworden!
Das Motiv hast Du toll coloriert, die Idee, die Sonnenbrille mit Glossy einzustreichen, finde ich klasse, sehr schöne Farben hast Du verwendet und die Karte sehr schön gestaltet... und das geflochtene Band ist super. Danke für Deinen kleinen Workshop, werde ich mit Sicherheit mal ausprobieren.

Liebe Grüße,
