Magic color slider (Lawn Fawn inspiration week)

Hi there!

Welcome back to another day of Lawn Fawn's inspiration and summer release week! Today, we're showing off a very cool new die: the Magic Color Slider.

Everything is black and white... until you pull the slider to reveal a colorful scene!

I used Dad + Me to show a straight-laced dad hanging with his kid.

But the sentiment and the "pull here" tab tell a different story...

Maybe Dad isn't so serious...

Definitely not. Those joke glasses are hilarious.

Here are my tips for making a magic slider card:

- use Staz-on ink for stamping on the acetate.

- a stamp positioning tool (like the MISTI) is a huge help. I wanted a good impression on the acetate and it took 2 or 3 inkings to get that.

- think of fun things that could be added as the slider pulls back. I did that with joke glasses on this card!

- saturate your colorful background. In hindsight, I wish I had done that. When you pull back the slider tab, the wow factor is revealing a completely colorful panel and I kept mine too light. I will definitely be making another one very soon!
