Stand Out From The Crowd!!

Morning Crafters. Today I am sharing another of the samples I made for the launch of Jungle Dreams from Michelle. Once again, it's been created using only one of the many images in the collection along with a couple of the sentiments to create the card and insert. Welcome to today's tutorial, I hope you enjoy it along with the finished card.

You Will Need:
Jungle Dreams Collection
Distress Inks: Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch,Chipped Sapphire and Black Soot.
Alcohol Markers: Yellows, Oranges and Red
Pebeo Drawing Gum
Sheena Stamping Card
Small Paint Brush
Adhesives and Base Card

Step 1: Print out your chosen image onto Sheena Stamping Card.

Step 2: Choose your sentiment. Tip: Print a page of sentiments, it save card and you will have the for other projects.

Step 3: Create and print your insert onto super smooth paper.

Step 4: Fill the image with Pebeo Drawing Gum, create a few splats by tapping your loaded brush onto a pen or ruler above the piece.

Step 5: Start your background, using Faded Jeans around your image, blending outwards.

Step 6: Next blend from the edges with Blueprint Sketch towards the middle.

Step 7: Repeat with Chipped Sapphire, always fading towards your image.

Step 8: Repeat with Black Soot, to really deepen the richness of the colour. Go easy here. Once the inks are dry, remove the drawing gum. Cut out your sentiment and bled around the edges.

Step 9: With your Alcohol markers, colour your image, blending from red to yellow.

Step 10: Assemble your card as shown in the photo.
