If you love illustrations for Children’s Books, you’re going to love the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC759) this week! I was inspired by THIS fun illustration.

After coloring & die cutting the Dino & trees, I created a “wagon” using a truck die. Rubbernecker makes a wagon die & I truly thought I had it, but didn’t when I made this card. ¬†I have since rectified that little problem ūüėÄ ¬†. A dark green Prismacolor pencil was used to make the slats on the side of the wagon. For the background I used a stitched hills die to cut the ground out of brown & made a mask w/ it to sponge in the green hills. A cloud stencil was used for the sky.

The greeting was stamped on a little banner die cut. Here are the Copics I used:

A big congrats to Trudy, the newest Featured Stamper on Splitcoast! She has a wonderful gallery & I chose THIS to case. I really did case her card..even though it may not look like it. I loved the color in the bg w/ the die cut on top so that’s what I kept. I used different colors, dies & sponging instead of brayering.

I took a few extra pics to show you how I got the color in precise areas & left a white highlight.

First, I attached the black die cut to the white card stock w/ temporary adhesive (pic above). Then I used the makeup brushes to apply the colors in specific areas.I didn’t worry about getting in on it since it’s black, I knew it wouldn’t show.

You can see the negative white image when I remove the die cut. I started to use it just like that, but then decided it added more drama to put the black die cut back in on top, but I shifted it slightly, to leave a white highlight on the right side (pic below). I like how it resembles stained glass.

The birthday greeting is part of a balloon image & trimmed off the balloons after die cutting it & attached it to an oval frame.

Fun site for the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC758)! I was inspired by THIS picture.

For my scene, I stamped & colored the lady & her guide dog & stamped the greeting along side. It just looked too empty & I couldn’t find anything I wanted to put behind her. So I used a pencil to sketch the little buildings & then a few grey Copics to color them in. Just a side note: in case you ever use a pencil then color in w/ Copics, be aware that if you color over your pencil line, you will not be able to erase it. It didn’t matter since I used greys, but it might matter if you use other light colors. Apparently the Copic (or any other alcohol based marker) makes the pencil permanent. So there’s your tip of the week!

 

Since my main panel is a square, I needed something to fill in the rectangle of the card front. I used a gray layer & cut the side angle, then stamped one section of the plaid (stripe) bg in gray ink.
