With all the cards I make, I have very little children cards. This week’s challenge at C.R.A.F.T. is Alien/ Fantasy is perfect for those “Make Believe” cards. I started with creating a space-themed card. Next, I thought -fantasy – unicorns, and flying elephants.
I started with painting a watercolour sky using Distress Ink Safty Ocean, water, and a waterbrush on watercolour paper. While that was drying, I cut out clouds from the Mama Elephant die set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. Next, I stamped my unicorns by MFT - BB Magical Unicorns, coloured them with Copic markers, added Wink of Stella to their horns, tail, and manes, and finally fussy cut them out. I assembled the card and added the sentiment also from the MFT Stamp set.
For my next card, I created the background using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi 24 COLOR SET, Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi STARRY COLORS Set of 6, on watercolour paper. I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped and coloured Mama Elephant’s – Space Bears with Copic markers. I fussy cut them out and started assembling the card. I added hand drawn stars and air hoses for the space suits, and stamped my sentiments.
For my final card, I used another Mama Elephant stamp set called FLY WITH ME, the matching dies, and Mama Elephant dies set - Cloud Nine - Creative Cuts. I coloured the critters with Copics. I arranged them on the card and stamped the balloons using a stamp set from Clearly Besotted ALL IN ONESIE Clear Stamp.
