My Mom is off to holiday "down under" in less than 2 weeks. She and a friend are off to visit New Zealand and Australia for a month so I thought I'd make a fun card to send her so it arrives in her mailbox when she gets home.
To begin the process I cut a piece of Classic White Cardstock as my base and then stamped my little camper image from the "S'more Fun" stamp set using Memento "Black Tuxedo" ink. Then I stamped and created a mask for the camper and applied it right over my stamped image. I added a simple mask just below the camper again to help create a skyline.
Then I took a variety of shades of Copic Markers (G20, V12, BV11, BV13, B93 and B97) and air brushed them all over my sky, leaving the green tone towards to the bottom to create a "glow".
Then I took some white acrylic paint, added a bit of water, and used an old toothbrush to splatter on some stars! Awww.... love that effect and so easy to achieve!
Then I peeled off the masks and coloured my little camper setting and foreground. I used the following Copic Markers:
B0000, BG11, BV25, BV29, BV31, E08, E13, E31,
E33, E34, E47, G000, G00, G20, G21, G24, T1-6,
Y000, Y15, Y21, Y23, YG21, YR0000 and YR000.
To finish it off, I stamped the sentiment "Welcome Home" from the "On the Porch" stamp set along with some fun chevrons from the "So Distressed" stamp collection.
I wrapped my panel with a thin black ribbon, added the silver star stickers and adhered it to a Classic Clack Cardstock card base.
Thanks for joining me today! I hope you'll join in and check out the rest of my fellow design team members' creations today...
