Make A Scene

Hello Crafters!

Happy Hump day! Congratulations you’re halfway to the weekend : )

When I sat down to make my card for this post I knew I wanted to do something I could color since, A. Our Challenge this month is “Color it In” and B. I just love coloring. As I was perusing my stamp collection and trying to come up with something I started to feel like all the cards I made looked the same. I decided instead of a “layout” I would build a scene. I grabbed the new Playful Animals from Hero Arts and forced myself to choose one (it was so hard, they’re all so cute!!)

As you can see I opted for the adorable little piggy. After I stamped the pig in Memento Tuxedo Black ink I went to work on the background. I love how people like Sandy and Dawn can dab a marker here and drop some watercolor there and they have these beautiful looking backgrounds.  Those ladies have an ability to see abstract that I just don’t have. That gene must have skipped me. However, I can get in on some concrete backgrounds. I busted out my pencil and ruler to draw in my background. It’s a more ridged approach but that’s what works for me. Do what works for you. Also, Google is your friend. For both the barn and the silo I looked at actual images to see how I wanted to draw it out. This is so immensely helpful to me. I do the same thing with flowers and just about anything else I’m coloring. I started with the fence, then the barn, and finally the silo. After it was how I wanted it, I went back in with my copic multiliner and did it all over again. Some fairly simple coloring and it was all done. I didn’t add a sentiment because I’m waiting for my Happy Stamp and Cut set to get here. I think it’ll be cute to do “Happy” on the front and “as a pig in mud” on the inside as a congrats type card. What do you think?

I hope you’ll give scene building a try too. You can really make a card your own by doing this.

Don’t forget about or current challenge to color it in. We hope you’ll play along!!

Hi guys! I’m Kelly. I’m married to a wonderful man named Craig and we have a gorgeous two year old son who is the light of my life. I can’t leave out our boxer/mastiff Molly who is my little one’s best friend. I’ve been cardmaking for about seven years and running my blog for around five. I am loving every minute of it! I’m a huge fan of clean and simple cards. I adore a good one layer card or building a scene. Also glitter, and lots of it
