SUO135 Wilderness Awaits
It’s time for the new SUO135 “Fall Fun” Challenge to create a card of what you think of when you think of fall.
I love this time of year and have been creating quite a few cards featuring just the lovely colors of fall with leaves lately, so I decided to create another somewhat masculine card in honor of some of the hunters that I know and love.
Personally I am thankful that my husband is not a hunter (we both love animals too much to actually be the one to shoot them) but being raised by a Dad who was a avid hunter, I understand the need for hunting season.
I decided to use masking and combine a few sets for this scene, and of course, had to add a few fall leaves.
I hope you will have a chance to check out my sister DesignTeam member samples at the SU-Only Challenge site and create your own “Stampin’ Up! Only” project for our challenge gallery.
I am also going to link this card to the Splitcoaststampers’ Free For All F4A293 “Puppy Love” Challenge (I personally have only had cats as my "fur-babies" but do love dogs as well :-)
Stamp the pointer dog image from The Wilderness Awaits using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink on Whisper White cardstock.
Stamp another image of the dog onto a piece of scrap paper or sticky paper to create the mask.
Mask the dog and stamp the trees from Wonderland onto the panel (masking off the bottom portion of the trees).
Color the images using Stampin’ Write Markers- Mossy Meadow for the grass and trees and Sahara Sand for the dog image and Tip Top Taupe for the tree trunks (using an AquaPainter™ to blend).
Use an AquaPainter™ to color the sky and water area with Pool Party Classic Ink and add Mossy Meadow Classic Ink for the shadow of the trees.
Add the horizon lines with the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker ink and stamp the sentiment from Lighthearted Leaves using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Mossy Meadow card base.
Use a Sponge Dauber to apply Tangerine Tango and Calypso Coral Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.
Ink the leaf images from Vintage Leaves using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, “fussy-cut” each leaf and mount onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
