This month the free image for the Scrapper’s Delights progressive challenge on their Facebook page was of palm trees. I decided to combine it with anther of their images to make up a scene.
Scrapper’s Delights : Jungle Palms
Scrapper’s Delights: Funky Ashley
X-Press It card
dark creen card
mid green card
Sheena’s A4 Jungle Leaves embossing folder
white, pearlised yellow, pearlised blue and pearlised lilac card snippets
acrylic greeting stamp
black archival ink pad
Arrange the two images on the page as you want them and print out on X-Press It card. I tried to have Ashley looking as if she is hiding behind the tree ready to surprise someone with the balloons.
Colour the images with Copic pens. When I coloured in Ashley I turned her spikey hair into leaves like a leafy head-dress.
Trim the coloured image to size and mat onto dark green card.
Use the A4 embossing folder to emboss the mid green card and cut a piece to layer onto the front of an A5 white card blank leaving a narrow border around the edges.
Stamp out the greeting with black ink onto a scrap of white card and mat onto dark green card matching the topper. Attach both matted elements to the front of the card.
Confession time! The balloons in the corner are actually covering an ink splodge that accidentally got onto the finished topper! I found some scrap pieces of card that just matched the colours I had used on the image. Phew, crisis averted.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care.
