One of the challenges I often enjoy doing is SCS's Inspiration Challenge. This week we had to be inspired by an image on designspiration.net. I chose this image:
August optional theme of Arctic Animals.
In the interests of getting my August quota finished, I decided to make three cards with the same stamp. To make it less boring, I used different layouts and different colouring methods.
Up first is one coloured with Copics, with the image die cut and mounted on an embossed background:
The next one uses coloured pencils. I stenciled
some snowflakes around the bear with Glitter Snow Paste, die cut it into a square, bordered it with dark green, and popped it
up on fun foam on a cardbase).
And finally a very simple one, watercoloured, bordered with red and black, and on a cream cardbase. I find that PTI's Vintage Cream cs is the closest colour to most watercolour paper so often use it as the cardbase for watercoloured images.
All of them have a bit of glitter on the trim
on the bear's hat and along the "ground" to add a touch of sparkle.
Let me know which one is your favourite!
