A new challenge at The Paper Funday begins today, the theme this month is Spring. My chosen image is a digi stamp called Scribbled Flora from Fred, She Said.
I chose to print my image on green card rather than white, it gives the colours a different look and saves colouring in the background.
For the colouring I have used some inexpensive metallic markers from Scribblicious, there are six colours in the box. Some colours came out showing more metallic sheen than others but on the whole I think the experiment was worthwhile.
For the grass area at the bottom I used a watercolour pencil, it came out a little more subtle than the pen would have and adds another shade of green to the mix.
I die cut a Kraft frame and stamped woodgrain on it, there was a noticeable join on the left where I had to match up the stamping, so I chose to cover it with a few flowers.
The frame was mounted on 1mm foam tape to give it a little dimension and a more realistic look.
I printed the image again on white card and used the same pens to colour the flowers. The colours came out a little brighter but not too noticeable.
Each flower head was cut out, shaped with a ball tool and then added to the frame, now they look like they were always meant to be there.
It's quite a simple card with no greeting so it can be used for almost any occasion and as it's nice and thin it will go standard post too.
Come and join us at The Paper Funday with your Spring creations, anything as long as it's made with paper or card and follows our\theme.
