Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week our challenge is to create a SCENE using one of the new Victoria Case Winter Wonderland images -- keyword: TIOT43!
I thought about this challenge for quite a while, and in the end I decided to make a diorama card. Love these! They are so cool to look at and fairly easy to make. I used several images from the latest exclusive stamp collection from the SCACD store called Victoria Case for SCACD - Winter Wonderland. Loving these sweet winter images! I used Skater for my main image, and since she's out enjoying herself on the lovely winter day, I added a light snowfall on the front acetate sheet as well using silver ink. The snowflakes are only available if you purchase the full sheet of stamps, but remember, Susana offers a HUGE discount for doing that, 25% off!
The main image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers, then cut out tight to the image. To make the background of my scene, I embossed the Cuttlebug snowy village onto white cardstock and added some color to parts of the image with my Copics. I also added some tint to the pond she's skating on before painting with Winter Frost Inspirations Paint. Glittery snow went onto the rooftops using my Quickie Glue Pen.
I popped up the skater so she sits in between the acetate window in the front and the village in the back. Added a little winter holiday sentiment and a bit of bling and she is all set! Be sure to enter to win the fabulous ELISABETH BELL blog candy that Susana has up now here on the store blog (first post)! NEW STAMPS will be released on Thursday November 12th -- it's going to be a good day!
