Hello and welcome back crafty friends! Today, I’m up on the Penguin Palace Blog for a design team post, and I thought I’d use the color palette inspiration from this month’s Penguin Palace Challenge!
I started by cutting each of the pieces from the Twist-n-Pop Surprise die (1 of the main piece and 2 of each of the others) from white cardstock. I started by creating my two little polaroid scenes by stamping some of the images from the My BFF stamp set using Gina K Designs Obsidian Black amalgam ink on my two die-cut rectangles (making sure to keep the scene inside of where the polaroid frame would cover). I created a mask for each of the images and also masked off the “ground” with a Post-It Note. Next, I ink blended the “sky” using Squeezed Lemonade, Kitsch Flamingo, and Milled Lavender distress oxide inks. I removed my masks and drew in the little hill on each panel with a Copic multiliner.
Next, I Copic colored the images using the following colors:
- Grass–G00, G000
- Clouds–C0, C00, R000 (cheeks)
- Rainbow–BV01, BV31 | B01, B000 | Y02, Y00 | RV23, RV10
- Two cats–W3, W1, W0
- Single cat–T5, T1, R00 | W3, W0
Once the coloring was done, I glued the polaroid die-cut frames on top of each of the rectangle scenes. Next, I blended the bottom decorative panels with Kitsch Flamingo and Milled Lavender distress oxide inks, and the bottom banner pieces with Squeezed Lemonade. I stamped the “Best Fur-iends Forever” and “Thank You For Being A Great Friend” sentiments on the top banners and glued them onto the lower ones. Lastly I assembled the card (see here for an awesome tutorial) and added some white highlights to the scenes using Sakura Gelly Roll pens.
