Pretty Pink Posh – Animal Signs

Hi, Friends!!

Welcome back for a Pretty Pink Posh project today using last month’s release products featuring the adorable Animal Signs!  Thank you to Paulina for understanding about my move and giving me a little break last month.  I’m happy to start creating again!

I’ve been switching it up a little bit lately and working on the background card panels before coloring my images.  Coloring can take so long sometimes and I definitely enjoy the canvas/card construction more.  I knew I wanted to use the Decorative Tags 2 as a focal point for my images, so I die-cut that from white cardstock and ink-blended around another piece of white cardstock to give it a soft background.  I used Mermaid Lagoon for the bottom and faded into the top using a custom blend that I created with a 1:1 ratio of Tumbled Glass and Cracked Pistachio.  Did you know that blank Distress Oxide pads are available so you can do this?  I’ll link it below for you! ;).  I use the reinkers and drop the inks onto my glass media mat (you can do it on a big acrylic block too if you don’t have a flat glass surface), flip the pad over onto it and let it soak up all the ink and voila! – a custom ink color!

Ok – so once the background is created, I splattered it with some watered-down Mermaid Lagoon (ink pad to an acrylic block, add 1-3 drops of water, mix, splatter with a brush).  Sometimes I add white paint too, but this time I didn’t.  I felt the white space from the decorative tag I cut was enough white on this card. 

Copic colors used: G00, G000, BG11, BG53, BG13, BG0000, BG57, BG10, R00, R0000, R20, R05, W0, W2, W4, C1, C3, C5, E21, E37, E49, Y11, Y08

Then I colored my images using Copic markers before stamping the sentiments inside the signs.  The giraffe is holding a bigger sign, so I used a sentiment from the Everyday Greetings set and it fit perfect.  After cutting out the images, I added them to the decorative tag, then propped the entire thing up on my card using foam adhesive for some dimension….and that’s a wrap!  I hope you enjoyed that!

I’ve seriously been procrastinating and need to get back into the groove of things!  If you missed my destash post and are interested in a mystery box, be sure to check out THIS post! 

I still have 15 packages that I’d like to sell.  NO PRESSURE.  Also…once all the trees are planted outside…maybe my husband will put my camera up so I can start filming my cards!  I’m nervous and excited about that!  Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by today!
