The Paper Shelter Challenge #527

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Buttons and/or Bows”. 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 Cutest Wizard” onto alcohol marker friendly paper.

Next I die cut around the image using a rectangle die two sizes smaller than my card base and leaving room on the right hand side for adding my sentiment. Next I stamped my sentiment using the Hero Arts “Make a Wish” stamp set in combination with black alcohol proof ink.

Now, onto the fun part: I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique alcohol markers for colouring the image.

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

For brown and yellow hues I used: Classique marker in GY05 and Illustrator markers in FS9, GB2, MB1, CT4, GB5, GB8, TN4 and TN8;

For teal hues I used: Classique marker in GT05 and Illustrator markers in BT4 and BT8;

For blue hues I used: Classique marker in IB05 and Illustrator markers in TB1, TB3 and TB5;

Green hues: Classique markers in LG05 and DG05 and Illustrators in GG1, GG3, GG5, LG5 and JG7;

Purple hues: Classique marker in HB05 and Illustrator markers in LV1, LV2 and PL4;

And Brown Greys in BG1, BG2 and BG4.

after the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.

The rest of the card is pretty easy: I die cut a slightly larger mat from matching blue card stock and adhered both panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a white linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish the card I now only have to adhere two bows (that I created from ribbon from my stash) onto the card using Ranger Medium Matte in the small bottle.

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!
