Snail Mail

Hi Everyone,

For today's card I have used an image from Gerda Steiner Designs.



Ingredients
Image: Snail Mail
Medium:  Copic Markers
Other:  Vellum, Nuvo Shimmer Pen

Method
  • Card Base: 10.5x14cm White Cardstock.
  • From a piece of white card, cut frame using die.  Lightly trace this frame onto card base using a pencil.  this is a guide for where your design will be. Set aside frame for later use.
  • Tape the outside of the drawn frame with post-it notes to protect the card base.  Using Catherine Pooler Ink (It's a Boy), colour the rectangle.
  • From a piece of white card, cut the grass and colour using Catherine Pooler Ink (Lime Rickey).Cut to side and adhere to bottom of the coloured rectangle on the base card.
  • From a piece of white card, cut the cloud twice using the die.  I used the smallest one.  Adhere the 'outline' of the clouds to vellum and trim.  Adhere these to the base card.
  • Print the image onto Copic X-press Blending Card and colour with Copic Markers.  Fussy cut the image leaving a small white border.  Adhere to base card as shown.
  • Adhere cut frame to base card.
  • Stamp sentiment using black ink.




Until next time
