PP206 Mr. Moose is Thinking of You :-)
I love this week's PP206 Sketch atThe Paper Players and decided to create a masculine card using the Walk in the Wild stamp set ( I have not had Mr. Moose out in a while :-))
I hope you will have a chance to visit The Paper Players site and check out all of the wonderful Design Team samples!!
To create this card:
With the Big Shot™ and the Ovals Collection Framelits™, cut out an oval from Whisper White cardstock as well as one the same size from Early Espresso.
Ink the moose stamp using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto the Whisper White oval cut in the above step.
Color the body of the moose with the Stampin’ Write Crumb Cake marker and follow with the Crumb Cake Blendabilities™ Collection. Color the grass with the Old Olive Blendabilities™ Collection and the sky with the light Night of Navy Blendabilities™ marker. *** FYI- I also re-touched up the moose using a fine tip black gel pen once I finished all of the coloring noted above ***
Lightly sponge the image with a Sponge Dauber and Crumb Cake Classic Ink. Apply additional distressing using the Color Spritzer Tool with the Stampin’ Write Early Espresso marker.
Mount a piece of Park Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP) onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock and adhere to the Early Espresso card base.
Mount a piece of retired Venetian Romance DSP onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock. Add this panel to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Ink the sentiment from the retired set, Kind and Caring Thoughts (I love the font on this set) and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. Use the Hexagon Punch to create the banner points and adhere to a piece of Early Espresso cardstock (also using the Hexagon Punch to create the points).
Create two banners using Park Lane DSP mounted onto Early Espresso cardstock (as described above).
Lightly sponge Crumb Cake Classic Ink over all three banners and add the banners to the card front per the sketch.
Create the diagonal panel over the focal image using scraps of cardstock and DSP- weave through a retired Antique Copper Hodgepodge Hardware ribbon slide and hand cut the curves to match the oval frame.
Use the retired Photo Corner Punch to create a small corner from Old Olive cardstock and adhere in the lower right hand corner, adding an Early Espresso Candy Dot™ to finish off the card.
