Hey crafty friends! How many times have you heard that classifying yourself as a beach or mountain person says something about your personality? Apparently, beach people are more of an extrovert and mountain people are more introverts.
I’m not sure if there is any truth but it’s been a dream of mine to visit the mountains of the rainforest and the inspiration behind my card.
For this card, I used Toucan Do It, Stitched Mountain Borders, and Meadow Borders Die all by Lawn Fawn. I began by stamping the images onto smooth cardstock and using my Copic Markers to color everything in the following color combinations.
Copic Marker Combination
Cheetah Body: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
Cheetah Spots: E29, E23
Toucan: N9, N7, N5, N3, Y35, YR00, Y00, YG05, B05, B00, R39
Butterflies: B05, B00, N7, RV19, RV52
Tropical Palm Leaves: G28, G07, YG25, YG11
Tropical Foliage: BG57, BG32, Y06,
Tree Branches: E27, E25, E23, E21, YG01, YG05, YG17
Hibiscus Flower: RV66, Y06
Flower: RV00, RV55, Y06
After coloring all of the images and using my ScanNCut to cut those out, I set them aside to work on the background. Using Distress Oxide spray in Mermaid Lagoon and Dylusions Ink Spray in London Blue, I sprayed a panel of watercolor paper for the background and then began working on the background elements.
I die cut the Stitched Mountains using kraft cardstock and added a little Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink for dimension. Next, I die-cut green cardstock and added Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink to the bottom edge.
Once all of the elements had time to dry or set, I used glue dots or liquid adhesive to create my little scene.
I was inspired by the current LawnFawnatics Challenge to create this card featuring my dream getaway destination to the mountains.
Thanks so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
