I made a Bendifold - but I will probably make a different shape because I am not very happy with it. I saw this on Splitcoaststampers and loved the one that was created by Bibiana, and foolishly thought I would have a go - here is one of hers:
It's gorgeous! Obviously way above my skill level however as I discovered when making mine!
Here is mine: what do you think?
A garden scene, using Hilde's freebie flowers for a focus!
I started off OK and had no problems following the instructions to make the base card - the tags to hold the curves need to be carefully made and remade as you add things to the front (and back) of the bends - I chose not to add to the back of my bends as I was already a bit overloaded on the front.
You can see the tags here
This is a back view
I printed out three copies of the digi's and coloured them up with Copics. I then masked them and sponged over some Memento Summer Sky and New Sprout ink to take the brightness of the white card away.
I used a lot of dies - mostly Memory Box, but not all. I cut the flowers out in white card and then coloured them straight with no blending using the Copics. The snail by MB was in grey card and I added the eye but it got covered with glue - I tried to erase it with my glue eraser but the marks still show.
The cat is MB too - isn't it cute - no glue here. Murphy's law says where it doesn't show it would be!! The fence is from Cheery Lyn and I glued some wood paper to some kraft, and then die cut it out - I was please with this effect.
The vine is Die-namics and the tree is is Spellbinders. The clouds are Whimsy.
The salutation is from SU - Apothecary Art
So - a Bendicard fold...........it was fun to make I must admit.
