Good morning and happy weekend! Today I’m popping in to share a card I created using more of the images I’ve colored for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge! I just love the Book Worm set from Mama Elephant and used the image to create a card for a certain book-loving friend of mine! 🙂
I decided to stick to a bit of a rainbow theme for this card resulting in a bright and cheery card!
To start I die-cut the Peekaboo Backdrop from Lawn Fawn with white cardstock. I placed it over a piece of strathmore bristol cardstock and used purple tape to mask off the various openings so that I could add blending. I used shaded lilac, wilted violet, cracked pistachio, peacock feathers, squeezed lemonade, mustard seed, spun sugar, and picked raspberry distress inks to create my panels. I also spritzed them with shimmer spray and water and blotted off the excess. After the distress ink was dry I stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant’s Good Reads with versafine on the purple panel and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder.
Next I adhered the peekaboo frame die over the blended background and then figured out the arrangement of all the images. I paired up critters for each panel except for the sentiment panel and adhered them under and over the frame for more visual interest. Then I added little accents to make things more interesting. I die-cut a few hearts from a Lawn Fawn die set, colored them with copics, and adhered one in each panel. Then I added accents to the images with a white gel pen and finished the card by adding a thin layer of crystal glaze over their glasses! I just love these reading critters and I hope my friend does, too! 😉
