World Card Making Day

In honor of World Card Making Day, I'm joining the blog hop over at Operation Write Home (OWH) as well as doing some homework for Copic Markers for Cardmakers, Online Card Classes (OCC).


The image is from the homework for OCC.  I colored him using the technique where the image is filled with Colorless Blender before adding light colors, in this case W00, W3, and W5 to the main body (spots in concentrated W5 outlined with W3), and C00 on the snout.  The nose is tip-to-tip blending with R01 and E04; the tag is tip-to-tip blending with YR12 and E35; and the collar is R22, R24, and R27.  I also used the R22, R24, and R27 on the sentiment banner and to color the pearl accents.

The heart background panel and sentiment stamp are from the new CTMH Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge set.  The standard image creates a card with the hearts forming a cut-out front. I unlocked the sizing and adjusted the measurements to 8 x 5.25.  When the card was cut, I used my paper trimmer to cut it into two panels of 4 x 5.25, and used what would have been the back of the card base as the underneath panel for the die cut hearts.  The red card base is from some pack of paper that's been sitting in my stash for so long I have no idea who made it or the color.  Sorry.

I love how this little guy turned out!  The colors are more of a Valentine feel, but he could be sent to a loved one - young or old - any time of year.

Until next time,
Becca
