Hi friends! Happy to be here on the Hello Bluebird blog for the first time! I’m sharing a clean and simple card today using one of my favorite images and sentiment from the latest release.
To create this card I first stamped out the adorable fox, his tomatoes, and a little worm from the Vegetable Garden stamp set. I also stamped out the rock from the Jungle King stamp set to use as a little stepping stool for the fox.
Then I colored the images with a mix of Copics(C) and Ohuhu alcohol markers:
Fox orange: YR5, BR3, YR4, YR220, Y110
Fox ears: R21, R000(C)
White shadow: N1(C), C0(C)
Tomato red: R8, R3, R1, R050
Tomato leaves: G1, G3, GY1
Brown pot: E59(C), E57(C), E23(C)
Wood stick: E42(C), E41(C)
Worm/grass green: G8, GY7
Rock gray: NG06, NG03, CG020
I used the coordinating dies to cut out my colored images and added some foam tape to the back.
For the background I used the second largest Nesting Deckle A2 die and cut out white cardstock. The I ink blended some Salvaged Patina distress oxide onto the die cut and stamped the sentiment using black ink. I did cut the word “to-ma-toes” apart from the rest of the sentiment so I could easily center it underneath. I didn’t have to do it this way, but I never really use long sentiments all on one line so why not.
Finally, I propped up my images onto my background and my background onto a white card base using foam tape to add dimension. And for last touches, I added a little bit of white highlight using a gel pen.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you like my card!
