My name is Lydia Morrison and I'm thrilled to have been invited to come aboard the Bildmalarna Design Team. For my debut blog post, I post my submission for the 1st BildmalarnaStampersBlog Design Challenge - BildiSketch001.
My interpretation of the design features the adorable Bildmalarna "Bear with Tulip" stamp available at http://www.onecrazystamper.com/. The moment I set my eyes on this darling little fellow I had an instant vision for the layout in this challenge and below is the result.The patterned papered is Basic Grey (Porcelain - Hampton), distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Ink and with some dots glittered using Ranger Stickles (Gold).
Take a look at the closeup for example:
If you would like to paper-piece this image too, the duplicates are required. Since there are only a few elements in this image just three layers are needed.
- The first base layer is the whole image stamped directly onto paper mat previously die cut.
- For the second layer, cut out from a duplicate: the whole bloom of the tulip; the bear's head and left ear (excluding the right ear and snout); both legs and the tail. Use Foam Dimensionals to adhere each cutout over its corresponding image on the first base layer.
- Cut out from the other duplicate: the bear's front leg and tulip's centre petal. Repeat using the Foam Dimensionals to adhere these cutouts onto the second layer forming the third layer .
The bear paw embellishments were pieced together using various sizes of punched circles and distressed with the same distress ink as above.Thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed putting this card together and sharing it with you and look forward to viewing your creative submissions too.
Till next time,
