Happy Monday everyone!! It’s time for a new Bi-Weekly Challenge and this week it’s all about Creating a Scene!
Create a Card with a Scene using any brand of products and Markers or Watercoloring mediums that we carry in the store. You may play along with other challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (more than 10) will result in disqualification for “The Prize”. This week we have a Mystery Box filled with Crafting Goodies!
One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize. Three additional entries will be chosen for the ”Top 3″ based on their creative use of the Challenge theme. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see!
The Linky will close on Sunday, August 7th at 12 pm CST. The winner will have TWO weeks to claim their prize. *International winners will be responsible for shipping costs if they choose to claim their prize* Check out what Keeway created using this week’s Challenge theme below!
Hello! It’s Keeway today sharing a card featuring the Lawn Fawn Dad+Me stamps. I was immediately drawn to this set when I first saw it in Lawn Fawn’s release previews because the classic funny nose glasses was just too cute and hilarious. With this stamp set I wanted to create something like a family portrait with the moose and did so by stamping the little ones twice and the adult moose twice: once as is, and once without the antlers. I took out the antlers by wiping off the ink with a Q-tip.
I then colored my moose family with copic colors. The females were colored with E00, E02, and R20. And the males were colored with E11, E13, and R21.
The background was also fun to create. The background is creaetd with the WPlus9 Tree Border Die, which I’m absolutely in love with! They are so unique. The die set comes with a few extra stitched tree pieces that allows you to add a little more depth. And after I die cut these pieces, I wanted to add just a tad more shading with my copic markers. Here I used G00, G02, and G03, but your colors are going to be dependent on the color of your cardstock. I also used the same colors to add some grassy textures to my hills.
For the sky, I created a soft blended morning with distress inks. I used Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, and Scattered Straw. I then stamped my sentiment from an older Mama Elephant stamp set, Sunday Sentiments, in black ink and finished off my entire scene by framing it in white.
Now my moose family portrait is done! Hope you enjoy today’s inspiration!
