Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Today I am sharing the card I created for the newest Create A Smile Challenge!
I started by stamping the bee and the lady bug and bee images from the Create A Smile (CAS) Best Bugs stamp set onto two rectangular pieces of 110 lb. cardstock using Gina K Designs Obsidian Black amalgam ink. Then I die cut two polaroid frames using a die from the Penguin Palace Twist-n-Pop die set. Next, I cut the rectangles I had stamped my images onto down to fit just behind the polaroid frames.
I Copic colored the little scenes using the following colors:
- Bee–Y18, Y08, Y06, Y02 | N8, N6, N4 | BG0000, BG000 (wings)
- Lady bug–N8, N6, N4 | R29, R27
- Branch–E59, E57
Once the coloring was complete, I glued the polaroid frames on top. Before I adhered the two polaroids to the card base, I stamped the little puffball (is that what these are called?!) images on the background in Hero Arts Soft Granite ink to add some interest. Lastly, I stamped the “best bugs!” sentiment on one of the polaroids.
