I share in more detail my Artisan Design Team Project using the Hills of Tuscany. A Box set of Note Cards and Envelopes and a dream of Tuscan Hills.
If you know me well, you’ll know that I love Italy and in particular Tuscany. To gaze into a crystal ball and that dream become reality, would be a dream come true.
Here I created a Box of Note Cards and envelopes with a Crystal Ball being the focal point for the front of the box. The Stylish Shape Dies helped create the aperture and the Hot Air Balloon Dies, the base of the Crystal Ball. The Layered Forals 3D Embossing Folder was used to emboss the die cut panel for interest and texture. Basic White Ink was then added to the raised embossed areas using a Sponge Dauber. The same was added to the raised section of the Crystal Ball base.
Stamping the Hills of Tuscany onto a basic white panel to sit behind the circular aperture, helped give the illusion of a white internal panel. A layer of Distressed Gold Foil was added and a square of vellum, which helped to soften the image making it look quite dreamy.
Watercolour paper was used to create the flowers. A wash of colour was first laid down and allowed to dry before die cutting with the Seasonal Branches Dies.
An almost exact copy of the front of the box, was recreated into a notecard with a slight difference.
The second notecard design, focused more on the trees and used the Embossed Panel as a background.
A soft delicate set with a dreamy appearance that has me dreaming of the Hills of Tuscany and my eagerness to return there.
