This is a new card I created today to take part in some challenge contests. I was fortunate enough to win the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge when I entered my Unicorn CAS Card. It was a random drawing and I was so excited I won!
Thank you Cupcake Inspirations, I will be playing the odds again soon 🙂
I won a $25 gift certificate at The Greeting Farm and they have SUPER CUTE Digis so I bought a couple and also some craft paper. Thank you The Greeting Farm!.
The Digi Stamp I used today is from The Greeting Farm. This is the “Creepy Cake Royal Pain” Digital Stamp for $3.00. I had such a fun time looking through all the cute and unique Digi Images, it was a challenge to decide which to choose!
I was inspired by a sketch in the book 400 Scrapbook and Card Making Sketches. This is the card I made with Sketch# 9 on Page 123 (in case you have the book):
I had a wonderful time coloring this image. I am a big fan of Alice in Wonderland and I think the Queen of Hearts is intense, like I can get sometimes!
This is the walk through of this card:
I printed the Digi Stamp and Die Cut it. I started with coloring her hair. I use Spectrum Noir Markers for her hair. The colors I used were: FS9, OR1, CR10, CR8, DR7, EB4.
I started with FS9.
I mapped out the highlights in her hair. I followed the lines as the high lights for this digi stamp.
Then I used OR1. I used whimsical flicks very lightly and followed the direction of the lines drawn.
Then I used CR10. Applying whimsical flicks again. (The rest of the colors will be used with whimsical flicks)
Then I used CR8 and Finally DR7. (Applying the same technique)
I went back with the colors to make sure all the white spaces were filled in.
I used Tanmit Gel Glitter Pens for the body.
Here it is against the light!
I alternated the bottom cake part between red, black and white glitter pens.
I used Liquid Pearls White Opal to make the pearls on the cake. Unfortunately, the circles were so close together, that the liquid pearls mixed together to form a blob-ish line.
I used a Micron Pen (the same one I use for Bullet Journaling) to form separations between the liquid pearls to differentiate them. I did this by outlining circles around them. The Micron Pen did a great job coloring over the liquid pearls. I also put a rhinestone on the necklace to add some bling.
I used Mod Podge Gloss over the hair to give it more of a sheen.
Here is the image after I applied the Mod Podge.
These are the papers I used as layers:
I laid down the black diamond pattern paper first:
Then the heart paper over that:
Then the white Die Cut Rectangle at an angle. I wanted it to look like a deck of cards.
Then I attached the Digi Image:
Next I created the Roses. I used the Spiral Flowers Die Cut by Impression Obsession. I used Spectrum Noir CR8 to give the Roses the half painted look that’s famous in the Queen of Hearts kingdom.
I rolled it into a rose. I made 4 roses:
I used Impression Obsession Die Cut flowers to make the bottom petals of the roses. I colored half in Red and Half in Black:
I gave the bottom petals 3 Dimensional texture with an embossing pen and squeezed each petal with my fingers until they creased.
I glued the rose onto the bottom petal and decided to use the gold glitter pen to the bottom petal for more dimension.
I repeated the process with the remaining 3 roses:
I attached the roses and drew lines with the Micron Pen and a ruler
Next, I stamped a “Have a Great Day” sentiment to a scrap piece of card stock paper:
Then I cut it with a Tag Die Cut:
I flipped the tag over and attached glue dots to the ends:
I attached it to the card…
… and attached gold rhinestones to the ends! All done!
