Herd you had a birthday - Inspiration Destination #136

Wednesday October 18-31, 2017
 
Welcome to another two week challenge at
 Inspiration Destination #136
We have a different theme this challenge ---
 EASEL cards
U-Tube has some great videos.. what's where I went cause it's been awhile since I've made one.. Have fun
 


For my card I used mostly My Favorite Things images. I did use Mama Elephant bird.. the one I colored blue. 

It was fun creating this cute scene. I started with the background and Ranger inks and did some color layering to get the ground, grass and sky. I didn't want the sky all one color so I have some lighter areas so it looks like clouds way up in the sky.  I black heat embossed the images and then colored with Zig markers.. I am really liking working with them and the blending is so easy and fun.  I then wanted to figure out the inside of the card so I found some shiplap... LOL and added it to the inside. I stamped the sentiment of a separate piece of the wood grain and used foam tape to adhere it..that way it gave the front panel something to hold it up. I then laid out the front of the card and some images are on foam some are just adhered straight down to the base. The left over pieces I added to the inside.  This is so cute and funny.



Showing the card open and the front animal piece is stopped and held open by the sentiment piece.

 
This is a better view of the sentiment area
