What’s more fun than a pack of corgis dancing at an evening Hawaiian luau?! This is the last week to participate in the Newton’s Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #103. It’s a summer-themed challenge and what’s more summery than a beautiful evening sunset and outdoor fun. I’m using the following Newton’s Nook products for this inspiration card:
My card is a bridge card design and measures 5″ X 7″ when folded down to fit in an envelope. I started by ink blending the background using distressed inks in Salty Ocean, Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Squeezed Lemonade. I splattered water on the ink and blotted off the excess using a paper towel to create the water spots. I also added a few white dots using my Signo Uni-ball white pen for evening stars. Next, I scored the sides to create the side panels for the bridge. Once the score lines were in place, I stamped the palm trees using black ink, allowing a center space for the “Aloha Friend” circular design. I also added a sandy beach using Copics along the bottom edge of the card base. To create the beach I used Copic E shades and added dots in black and white for seashell pieces.
I cut two pieces to bridge the sides for the pups to stand on in two rows (see view from top to see these pieces). I stamped colored and die cut the five corgis. I also stamped the Tropical Fringe and phrase, added ink around the edges and punched it out using a circular punch. I matted it with a black larger circle. I adhered the circular phrase design to the backdrop. The five corgis were glued to the two bridge pieces, 3 in front and 2 in the back row for the scene.
Join us for the Inky Paws Challenge #103 by Friday, August 9 to participate!
