Hi Friends! Caly here! The current challenge theme is Create A Scene and I think it’s a fun one that many will love. This challenge runs through May 2nd, 2021 at 11:59PM ET so be sure to link up your projects! I hope my card today inspires you. I love interactive cards and had fun creating this Toadally Awesome card!
I began by stamping and coloring my Toadally Awesome images with Copic markers.
Pinks: RV21, RV23, RV29, R20
Greens: [G12, G14, G09], [YG05, YG09, G09]
Blues: B000, B02
Browns: E31, E34, E37
After coloring and die-cutting my images, I worked on my scene first by creating my background. I used the Scene Builder Stencils: Bayou to ink-blend, first the vine with Noble Fir Ink, then the leaves with Jalapeno ink. Then to add more color, I ink-blended a layer of Merman ink over the bayou canopy.
I needed to create a pond piece that would cover the interactive mechanism, so I die-cut a piece of Moonstone cardstock using a stipple die from the Palm Tree Border die. I then ink-blended it to add some depth using Fish Tank ink.
If you haven’t seen the Intro to Swish ‘n Pop video, be sure to check it out! It’s a great video showing you how to use the interactive Swish ‘n Pop Pull-Tab dies! After putting together my mechanism, I put my pond panel over it to cover it up.
I filled my scene with all the colored images and made it so that one of the frogs jumps from the log into the pond. I hope it makes you smile as much as it makes me smile! I had so much fun creating this scene!
