The Paper Shelter Challenge #487

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Two Colours”. 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 “Wild Rose” and for my two colours I picked Pink and Green.

Step 1:

I started my project by creating the base: which is a money gift enveloppe. For this I used a Dutch Doobadoo template with number 470.713.030. I traced the enveloppe and the tag with a pencil on two different pieces of design paper and cut them out using my scissors. I edged both the enveloppe and the tag using Distress Ink in “Victorian Velvet” in combination with a foam applicator tool. For the tag I created the pocket (to put the money in) using a die from the Studio Light STENCILSL277 die set using the same design paper. I put the tag and the enveloppe together using Scor Tape. You can decorate both items any way you like! The die cut hearts on today’s project are by Crealies (Crea-Nest-Lies Small CNLS22 Hearts / Cardzz CLCZ18 Camera).

Step 2:

For my main decorations I used:

- an ivy die cut by Joy Crafts (6002/0456) which I die cut form matching dark green card stock. I found a ribbon in my stash with the same colour.

- next I printed the “Wild Rose” image onto alcohol marker friendly paper and coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique makers.

For pink I used: AP3, MG2, MG3, BP6, BP7 and Classique markers in PP05 and MG05;

For green I used: LG3, LG5, AG2, JG7 and Classique marker in LG05;

For the hearts of the flowers I used: GY1 and GY5;

Around the image I used a combination of GG1 and BG1.

After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image leaving a small border. I also cut the inner parts out using a craft knife.

Step 3:

I adhered the ivy die cut onto the enveloppe using liquid glue and adhered the coloured and fussy cut image on top using one millimetre thick foam tape. To finish the project I added some die cut hearts and sparkling clear sequins in different sizes using Ranger Medium Matte from the small bottle.
