Hello my inky fingered friends. Davina here sharing a slimline card that I made using the current April Mood Board and the new Hello Bluebird release. This was my first chance to unwrap these adorable stamps, and I chose to use the Picked For You set and a sentiment from Happy Wishes.
I wanted to make a tall slimline card so that I could build a woods filled portion on the top of the panel. I cut a stitched slimline panel using the middle size Trinity Stamps Slimline Series Stitched panels, from Neenah and Bristol cardstock. I stamped the trees across the top by creating a little mask for the right tree. Then using the stamped grass below the trees as a guide, I cut the Bristol panel using the curved Grassy Knoll Dies. I cut the remaining piece with the hilly grassy die to create my bottom layer.
I copic colored the trees with very light tans, and the visible strips of sky in an ombré sunset of light orange into yellow. I didn’t want to bring a whole lot of attention the green grass, since green isn’t in the color board, so I gently inked the grass layers in Old Paper and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks. Making sure to leave plenty of white space. I colored the remainder of my stamped images using the colors of the color board and giving my sweet little girl some sherbet hued strawberry blond hair, very reminiscent of my little nieces.
After highlighting my images with small white dots, I got to work building my scene. I used a variety of adhesives to create my panel. I glued the tall grass layer directly over the bottom panel and used foam tape to attach the short layer. Then I adhered the remainder of my images. I finished it off by mounting it atop of some light pink striped Doodlebug Designs paper and adding a few iridescent jewels.
