I recently discovered vertigo and loved the effects and wanted to see just how I could use it along with the items I already have in my craft room.
Time; ¾ -1 hour
Imagine Crafts :Vertigo (breeze)
Tsukeniko Rich Cocoa Memento ink pad
Ranger : Alcohol inks - Cranberry, butterscotch and Oregano, blending solution and blending tool,
Paperbabe stamps: Sentiment stamp
Tonic studios: Rococo Butterfly die
Cuttlebug: die cutting machine
Xcut: circle dies
Green card, white card, adhesive, 4 purple eyelets, eyelet setting tool, 8x8 photo box frame.
• To cover the vertigo add drops of the alcohol ink and blending solution to the blending tool and dab over the surface, if you want a more vivid colour add more ink and less blending solution.
• Cut a circle aperture out of the Vertigo using a circle die and die cutting machine
• Cut a circle from the green card the same size as the aperture and a slightly smaller white circle, Stamp the sentiment on to the white circle with the Memento Rich Cocoa ink.
• Glue the circles into the center of the vertigo and add the butterflies one on top of the other, I glued the green one flat and curled the wings of the cranberry one using the barrel of a pen and then stuck this on top. I placed the flourishes diagonally below to balance the design.
Your finished project could be attached to the front of an 8x8 card blank or put into a box frame to use for home décor as I have below.
