Floating By – Inky Paws 175


Hello and welcome back!

Today is the beginning of a new Inky Paws Challenge, and I am SO excited about this one! This challenge is all about creating a one layer card. Don’t be intimidated! There are lot’s of ways to do a one layer card.

For my card, I wanted to create a scene with the Delightful Doxies Stamp Set. This is an older stamp set, but I absolutely love it! I started by cutting a piece of white card stock to 3.5in x 6.5in. On that panel, I stamped the doxie with the string on his tail towards the bottom of the panel. I wanted a bunch of balloons to be attached to his tail, so instead of using the balloon stamp in the set, I stamped the cluster of balloons from the Holding Happiness Stamp Set by masking off the girl and only stamping the balloons. I stamped the first cluster of balloons in the upper center of my card, masked those off, and stamped two more clusters to make a large arrangement of balloons. Leaving the masking on, I stenciled in some clouds using the Clouds Stencil.

To color my card, I used a rainbow of Copic markers in these colors:

Doxie: E18, E17, E15, E13, E11

Pink Balloons: RV29, RV25, RV13, RV21

Orange Balloons: YR07, YR04, YR12, YR21

Yellow Balloons: Y38, Y35, Y13, Y02

Green Balloons: YG17, YG45, YG23, YG11

Teal Balloons: BG49, BG45, BG32, BG11

Blue Balloons: B28, B26, B24, B21

Indigo Balloons: BV08, BV34, BV23, BV01

Purple Balloons: V17, V15, V12, V01

To finish my card, I stamped the sentiment “You Lift Me Up” from the Delightful Doxies Stamp Set in black ink by the doxie.

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!
