The Paper Shelter Challenge #477

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Going Digital”. You can find all the details for the current challenge here!

For today’s project I choose a digital image from The Paper Shelter called “Laundry Day”:

I started my project by printing this image onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I die cut around the image using one of my square nesting die sets. Today I’m colouring with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator alcohol markers and a few of the SN Classique markers.

For skin I used: FS7, TN1, CR1 (and HB3 for eyeshadow);

For hair I used: MB1, TN4, GB8 and EB8;

For green I used: LG1, LG5, JG7 and Classique GT05;

For purple I used: HB3 and Classique HB05;

For yellow I used: GY1 and GY3;

For blue I used: BT1 and BT3;

For red I used: PP3 and DR2;

For cool grey I used: IG2, IG5 and IG8;

For warm grey I used: FS9, BG1 and BG4.

When the colouring is done I can add back in some highlights using a white gel pen. As you can see I have a smudge on the left hand side of the image, I will put a sequin there later on, no reason to start all over again!

Now that the colouring is done I can work on the rest of the card design: I stamped one of the sentiments from the Clearly Besotted “Mini Calligraphy” stamp set on the right hand side of the coloured image using black ink. I also die cut a slightly larger square panel from red card stock and I adhered both panels together using liquid glue.

The background is partly a piece from a recycled birthday card. I also die cut a square panel from a peach coloured design paper, two sizes smaller than my card base. And lastly I die cut a square panel from purple card stock, one size smaller than my card base. These two large square panels I adhered together using liquid glue.

I wrapped some green ribbon around these combined panels and adhered on the back using regular tape. Now I can adhere these combined panels onto a white square card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.

Next I can adhere the other square elements on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape and to finish my project I’m adding some sparkling clear sequins in different sizes using Ranger Medium Matte in the small bottle.
