Hi everyone, today I’m sharing with you this weeks challenge project for The Paper Shelter Design Team and this weeks theme is “Alter It (crop or alter an image or use it differently)”. 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 “Venus Flytrap” onto alcohol marker friendly paper. I also printed the plant part on the right hand side for the second time but this time slightly larger. Next I die cut the bottom part of the images and fussy cut the top parts.
Now I can colour the images and adhere them together. For colouring I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique alcohol markers:
For skin I used: a Classique marker in CR05 and an Illustrator marker in TN1;
For gray parts I used: Illustrator marker in BG2;
For green I used: LG1, LG5, DG1, CG3 and CG4;
For yellow I picked: GB2 and GY5;
For blue I picked: TB2 and TB4;
For red I picked: FS3, DR1, DR3 and DR5.
After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.
Next I die cut another rectangle panel in the same size and draw some of the bushes behind the digital image on there and coloured them. And I also stamped my sentiment (this particular one is from the Lili of the Valley stamp set “Handwritten Phrases”).
The rest of the card is easy: I die cut a slightly larger rectangle panel from dark blue card stock and adhered both rectangle panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered onto a craft coloured card base 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!
