Inspired by…

New card I was going to enter into the current Inspired by challenge…but once again I missed the cut off date! Oh well here it is anyway.

Started off with a completely different design idea but couldn’t get it to work how I wanted so decided to go literal with the theme and sketch. I used the Hero Arts Monthly Kit April 2018. Love how it all turned out.

  • Stamped cacti onto Hammermill cardstock with Momento Tuxedo Black ink.
  • Colour with Copics – YG11, YG13, YG25, G21, G24, YG67,G12, G14, G16, V05, RV66, R20, R22, R24
  • Diecut with matching dies

Background

  • Ink blended Distress Oxide Inks (Twisted Citreon, Bundled Sage and Mowed Lawn) over Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock.
  • Apply three strips of double sided tape over cardstock. Remove one strip of release tape and sprinkle glitter over. Burnish with your finger or a bone folder. Tap off excess glitter.
  • Repeat the application of glitter using different shades of green.

Sentiment

  • Stamp the banner and sentiment onto cardstock.
  • Diecut with matching die.
  • As I used a non copic friendly ink I decided to shade the banner with Chameleon pencils but any coloured pencil will do.

Finishing

  • As I wanted to make a paper bag for the cactus (as in the photograph inspiration) I used the tissue that came with the kit. Pretty cute aye!
  • Using ATG adhere background to card base.
  • Adhere the bag and cactus with the sentiment last.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good day.
