Scallop Easel Valentine - Staedtler Fimo Giveaway

Inspired by this weeks sketch at Card Patterns, I created a Scallop Easel Card, using shapes from the Silhouette Library.  The Scallop Circle and Circle patterns are from Silhouette's Nesting Scallop.  I opened the image in the Silhouette Designer Software, selected the image, then ungrouped it, keeping the Circle and Scallop Circle, then deleted the rest of the images.  Working with the Scallop, I mirrored the image, moved the circles and welded to create the shaped card.  Once resized, I added an additional Scallop to the mat, and cut from Red card stock.

The Circles (also from the Nested Circles) are cut from Black and Confetti card stocks (cut 2 of each).  I created the Black Scallop panel by welding together two of the Small Scallop Border images from the Silhouette Library, the Confetti panel is a Round Rectangle that I sized to fit on the Black Scallop.  To create the background I used the Chalked Emboss Technique using STAEDTLER Chalk Pastels in shades of Red.  On the inside of the Easel card I stamped the Verses Sentiment (RR1014-C) in Black Archival on the Confetti panel.

To embellish my card I added some Clay Hearts that were created with STAEDTLER Red Fimo Effect Clay.  I love the added glitter in this clay.  To create the larger Heart, I used a Fimo Shaped Cutter, for the smaller heart I used a Fimo Push Mold.  While the clay hearts were still wet, I lightly pressed a paper doily into the clay to add some texture.  Once the clay was hardened, I painted on a light coat of Gloss Varnish

Love your heart made out of the clay! I have difficulty with fingerprints when I work with clay myself. Need more practice I guess. This new or new to me air microwave clay sounds interesting. Can't wait to give it a try.

Lovely card! That clay heart has quite the wow factor! Since Sunday is my & your Jim's b-day this would make a nice surprise gift....

I am a bit burned out on card making because no matter how hard I try, they all look the same anymore. So, I'm trying to branch out into mixed-media projects (which is difficult, as I am NOT an artist), and have considered clay for some time now. But, I'm on a fixed income, and having no idea what to purchase to start, I've been putting it off for fear of wasting my money. So, I would be absolutely delighted to win your fabulous prize! Thanks so much for offering it!

Love your clay heart and how you pressed the doily into it to create the texture!

Chabersztyna said...

Yay, great oppourtunity for me!
I haven't use fimo air before so I'm curious how it works ;) I've just found a tutorial how to make fake whipped cream with air dry clay and I'd love to try it (instead of silicone) for my polymer clay cupcakes :)
Software you used looks very helpful. I like the size of your card, it's very cute, little valentine :)
