Hello, crafty friends! I'm stopping by today to share a recent card of mine made for my turn for a daily post over at the CDD blog. I've recently got a couple of cute stamp sets from Craftin Desert Divas featuring farm animals and I've decided to pull them out to play around with this time. Here is what I came up with:
In order to create a background I first die cut 3 circles on a watercolor paper panel, stamped flowers from Just Bugcause stamp set and leaves from Build A Scene set on the panel, and then masked off all the images. I guess masking was the most challenging and time-consuming part of all this work. When this was done, the rest of the stuff was an easy peasy thing to do. Once I had every leaf and flower masked off, I colored the background with Distress inks and sprinkled it with water to get some spots. After the masks were removed, I colored all the images and left the paper to dry. I then stamped some animals from Punny Farm stamp set and colored them with Copic markers. The card base was as well colored with blue Distress inks and the animals were placed in the circles. To finish off my card, I stamped one of the sentiments from Punny Farm stamp set and added a couple of Pixie Dust sequins. And now you know all the tricks:)
This card was clearly about pops of colors, wouldn't you say?
I hope you've enjoyed today's card. Thank you for stopping by!
Have an awesome crafty day!
