Julia Spiri The Little Ladybug

 

Hey crafty friends! Welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Challenge Blog for the month of June. If you are wondering how it could be June already, then you are not alone! It seems that one blink and we are past another month.

For this challenge, I used The Little Ladybug by Julia Spiri, and created a fun Summer scene card. Just in case I didn’t mention it before, but scene cards are my most favorite card design to create.

I printed the image onto a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of smooth white cardstock and used my Copic Markers. I began by coloring in the sky a nice sunset shade. After coloring the bottom part of the scene, I decided that I did not like the sky. Since I added yellow, I had to think of a way to creatively cover it without creating a bigger mess.

I added the cliffs in and that took care of half the problem but the center portion of the card was still a bit of a dilemma. I thought that my trusty Distress Oxide inks would solve the problem and Salty Ocean did the trick. 

Copic Color Combination

Water: B000, B00, B12, B14, BG11
Grass: YG03, YG17, YG67
Sand: E21
Cliffs: E70, E71, E74
Leaf: YG17, YG05, YG03, YG00
Pink: RV17. RV55, RV52″
Yellow: Y38, Y18, Y04
Black: N5, N3, N1
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E27
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R20

To complete my scene, I added clouds by using diluted white acrylic paint and a stiff stenciling brush. Since my card was printed to an A2-sized panel, I simply trimmed the panel with a rectangle-stitched die and added the sentiment.

Aviator Cat

 

Good morning crafty friend! Welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Team “Anything Goes” challenge! This month I chose to create with Aviator Cat by the lovely Julia Spiri. I encourage you to check out her amazing work here.

Taking inspiration from Amelia Earhart, I colored in the cat with my Copic Markers, after printing the image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock.

Copic Color Combination 
Cat: YR27, YR24, YR21, Y32, N7, R22, R20
Pink: R85, R83, R81
Gray: N5, N3, N1, N0

Once the coloring was complete, I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out. Next, I created the background using an embossing folder with dashed lines. I wanted to convey visual movement like a plane would make on some destination.

Using the Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers, I picked out the sentiment and added it to my card front with foam adhesive. To finish this card, I added pink clay hearts and a compass for embellishments.
