The Paper Shelter Challenge #511

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

I started my project by printing this digital image by The Paper Shelter called “Berry Delight” onto alcohol marker friendly paper.

Now I can colour the image using my Spectrum Noir TriBlend alcohol markers. I used the following markers: Lavender Blend, Pale Pink Blend, Pale Pink Shades, Dark Red Blend, Ice Grey Blend, Ice Grey Shades, Light Green Blend, Gold Brown Blend and Tan Shades.

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.

From my stash I picked a design paper that went well with the colours I had going on (or you pick the paper first and adjust your marker colours to the paper that you picked) and traced the design of the Dutch Doobadoo template (470.713.142) on the design paper using a graphite pencil and cut it out using my scissors. I also traced the slightly larger design on purple card stock and the even larger design on white card stock. I edged the purple and design paper using matching inks and a foam applicator tool and adhered the first two layers together using liquid glue.

Onto this combination I stamped my sentiment (which is CLTZDFJ03 by Crealies) using black ink. I wrapped some ribbon around the combined panels and adhered on the back using regular tape. This combination I can now adhere onto my white card base also using liquid glue. And to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top using one millimetre thick foam tape.

So now it's your turn! Come and play with us over at The Paper Shelter, and you could win an amazing $30 gift voucher if you use an image from The Paper Shelter. And if you enter with a different brand image, you can still win three TPS digis of your choice (which you can then use to enter the next challenge, and so be eligible for the $30 voucher!).

That is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
