Ukens utfordring hos Creative Fingers #58. er sponset av Rick St.Dennis! Jeg endte opp med å lage to DT-kort, siden det var så mange flotte motiv! Denne gangen er det 'Anything Goes' som betyr 'Lag-hva-du-vil' :) 


I ended up making two step-cards as my DT project for this weeks challenge #58. at Creative Fingers. Rick's motifs were so awesome I wasn't able to just do the one!

Techniques: I always use my Scor-Pal to score n fold my cards. I prefer Canson Montvale aquarelle paper (200 g/m coldpressed). My distress tools from Ranger Ink is always in use! ~ Tim Holtz® Mini Ink Round Blending Tool & the Inkssentials Ink Blending Tool and Foams. I used misc. Luminarte Twinkling H2o's Shimmering Watercolors, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink pads & markers to watercolor and distress image and papers. The Frantage embossing enamel has to be heated from under the paper with a heatgun, as it's going to go poof all over your workdesk if you apply heat on top of it like a regular powder! Yep, I did it! LOL :)
The card is a three-step-card, I took a 12x12 cardstock, cut it about 6", and I have scored at 1",2",4",6",9". You fold it alternating ways, kind of like an accordian with mountain/valley folds (up and down). If you go on YouTube, Google or Pinterest and search for 'Stair+Step+Card+fold+tutorial' etc. you will find hundreds of tutorials! Like this one: Stair Step Fold by Beate Johns.
