* Vera Lane Studio: Be Wise


Happy Monday!

Today at Vera Lane Studio we have a new release called Be Wise
I made the following card:

I used a circle mask and with Emerald Isle Infusions powders, a little ColourCraft 'Sprinkle It' and a spritz or two of water created the background. Once dry, I stamped around the circle with an Inkylicious text stamp in Peeled Paint Distress Oxide and edged the card with Peeled Paint and Vintage Photo inks.
I coloured the images with Copic markers, adding a few white Posca pen marks as highlights. As I was arranging the images onto the background I felt that I needed something substantial to ground the images and I decided to use a tree stump from the Woodland Props set. 
The tree stump was glued directly onto the background and the girl and owl were popped up on foam pads. The sentiment was cut into strips, inked around the edges and glued onto the background.
I matted my card onto kraft card and then onto a 6 x 6 inch card base.
