Hello! Today’s card will be quite similar to the Paper Planes card I posted earlier this month. Nevertheless, I think it is a cute card :-).
The images are from the stamp sets Elphie Selfie and Flying By (both by Lawn Fawn) and are stamped in Archival Ink, a waterproof ink. I coloured the images using ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Pens by Kuretake and some water. If you are interested, the colours that I used are 041 Light Green and 047 May Green for the paper planes as well as 093 Green Gray and 028 Pale Pink for the elephant.
I then die-cut the images with their coordinating dies and my die-cutting machine, the Cuttlebug.
I arranged the images to make it look like the elephant is sending off the paper planes. The trails are drawn by hand using a Copic Multiliner (in the width 0.3mm). I noticed that I needed a ground for the elephant to stand on and so I cut a strip from pattern paper (Lawn Fawn’s paper pack Knock on Wood) and placed it on the bottom of the panel.
This ground was also the perfect place to stamp the sentiment. For this, I took the sentiment “Happy Birthday” from Lawn Fawn’s Happy Happy Happy stamp set and used Versamark ink. I applied some white embossing powder on it and heat embossed the powder until it was melted.
I adhered the elephant and the paper plane that he just threw in the air with foam tape onto the panel. This gives some dimension to the elements. The rest is adhered with regular liquid glue.
I hope you enjoyed this card. Here are some close-up pictures:
Pssst! Please don’t tell my husband that this will be his birthday card! :-)
Thank you for stopping by! See you soon!
