Ai - Animals & Nature Challenge

Thursday, June 11, 2020

I am back again sharing another card for the Art Impressions 
Challenge ... This week it is; Animals & Nature Challenge. 

I am using the new Possum Set

As you can see above I used the three possum swinging on a branch with the funny sentiment "Another Birthday? Hang in there."

I started by Copic coloring my possum image.  I fussy cut it out and had a black die cut frame from a different project for my frame. 

I framed my white card stock with my purple tape so that once my frame was added you would not be able to see my clouds that were stenciled on. I used some blue ink to emulate a cloudy sky for the swinging possum background.

These next few images are more hints to make things easier, well at least in my opinion :-) As you can see I taped down my four corners on top of my frame.  This allows me to have the frame evenly spaced on my card base, and have my sentiment in the appropriate spot.

Now you can see my tape shifted positions ... why?  Because now I have it laid out so once my foam tape is on my frame I can line it up and my frame will be in the correct place. Too many times have I had to peel up my frames for pieces because they weren't in place.  So now I line up the top and the rest falls in place.  You're welcome :-)

See how good my frame looks on my card base?  It really does line up perfectly.  It save time that is for sure.  Try it ... all that's wasted is a tiny bit of tape.  Press down your possum image and now just to finish it off with a few sequins.

Here is one more look at my finished card.  I hope you have enjoyed my take on the Animals & Nature Challenge. I had so much fun with this card.  I will definitely be making more things with this set. Please head over to the Ai blog and play along ... you could win a fabulous prize.  Have a great day!
