The Paper Shelter Challenge #519

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” (when you use a digital image/stamp this will do just fine). 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 “The Saxophonist” onto alcohol marker friendly paper.

Next I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique alcohol markers. I used the following colours:

For skin I used: Classique marker in CR05 and Illustrator markers in FS7 and TN1;

For brown I used: FS9, MB2, GB9 and EB8;

For yellow I used: LY1, GY3 and GB4;

For red I used: FS3, CR5 and DR7;

Warm grey: BG2;

Cool grey and black: IG1, IG5, IG6 and IG8.

Around the image I used brown and a Classique marker in LY05.

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.

Next I die cut a rectangle panel two sizes smaller than my card base from a design paper covered with music notes. I also die cut a black rectangle panel one size smaller than my card base. These rectangle panels I adhered together.

I also die cut two circle shapes, one from white card stock and one, slightly larger, from vellum. Onto the vellum panel I stamped my sentiment using black ink and I heat embossed directly afterwards using clear embossing powder. When you place the circle shapes behind each other it looks like the musician is in the spotlights.

Now I only have to adhere the different elements onto the card base using liquid glue and one millimetre foam tape and my card project is done!

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!
