Hello there, I am back today with another card and video for Create A Smile. For my card today I am using squirrel from the Friends In The Woods stamp set. I thought it would be cute for him to hold the little heart from the Underwater Love set.
I started off by stamping the squirrel on to a panel of white cardstock, he was then masked off (by stamping him on masking paper, cutting him out and placing it over the image). I also made a little mask for a hillside. I have really enjoyed the look of ink blended backgrounds with Copic coloured images. Laura Bassen has been doing this recently and that is what I was inspired by for this card. I added a little Tumbled Glass Distress Ink for the sky and then Mowed Lawn for the hillside. I took a 0.3 Copic Multiliner to draw on the hill.
The squirrel was then coloured using Copic Markers. I took the little heart from the Underwater Love set and stamped this so that the squirrel was holding it, using Memento Lady Bug ink. The sentiment, from the Friends In The Woods set, was stamped beside the squirrel and I finished off by adding a little Pico Embellisher to the heart for a little shine. The panel was adhered to a white card base with foam sheet.
Here are the links to what I have used on the card. Please click the picture to be taken to where I purchased it.
Thank you so much for visiting me today. If you have time, please pop over to the Create A Smile Blog, there is tons of inspiration over there from the amazing Create A Smile Design Team and Video Team. Have a great day!
