Have a berry great day ~ CYP Challenge 173
One of the things I love best about summer is fresh fruit, especially berries so this week's Craft Your Passion card makes me smile. Our challenge this week is 3-D It which is something I have been trying my hand at lately because the effect is so cool. My talented CYP teamie, ~ginny, is a master at this technique and has been really helpful with tips. Thanks, ~ginny! Our sponsor this week is Doodle Pantry and I was able to play with Berry Nice Mice which comes with the images coloured and uncoloured as well as sentiments and background papers. I coloured the images with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut them. Extra parts on a second set of images were coloured, fussy cut, and popped up on foam tape to create the 3-D effect. It's difficult to see in the photos but the paws and the berries they are holding, the centers of the two raspberries on the floor, the mouse's feet, and the two blueberries on the floor were the extra bits. The blueberry mouse has black flat pearls added to his eyes. The images were then popped up on foam and added to the matted punched circles.
The red dotty background paper comes from K & Company's Wild Raspberry stack and was matted in the same blue cardstock as the image. The blueberry paper also matted in blue is part of the Doodle Pantry digi kit. Before it was adhered to the background, red and white baker's twine was wrapped around the red layer twice. The little sentiment, also from the digi kit, was printed on white cardstock, matted in blue, and popped up on two layers of foam tape. Three buttons were added to complete the card. So there you have it, my 3-D card for this week's challenge. If you get a chance, pop over to the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog to see the creations from the rest of the DT. Let me tell you, they are cute!! I'm hoping they inspire you to play along this time.
