Hey Fungi Scene Card w/Video

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0

The critter stamps by Trinity Stamps are so cute and sweet! I couldn’t want to make a scene card using the cute little mice from the Mouse House stamp set.  There is a video tutorial for this card – which you can watch in HD over on YouTube, and the written tutorial is below.

Ink Blending

I die cut a cloud border and grassy hill from the Melon Edge die from a piece of Bristol card. Use Catherine Pooler inks – It’s A Boy and Something Borrowed for the sky, and Garden Party and Grass Skirt for the grass – for the blending. I use one blending brush per colour and keep blending until I am happy with the blend.

 

Making The Scene

Adhering the snail to the toadstool with liquid glue, I want this to look as if the toadstool was bending over with the weight of the snail. I adhere house and snail to the grass panel, then cover the whole of the back with foam tape for no saggy areas.

Adhering the flowers and clovers with liquid glue.  Using their placement to keep the card visually balanced.  The toadstools at the very edge either side are adhered to the sky panel.  Finally, the two mice are attached with foam tape where they overhang from the top of the tree stump. Liquid glue gives you some time to be able to move the image into the correct space before it dries.  I use acrylic blocks to hold all the flowers and clovers until the glue has fully dried.

 

Finishing The Card

The cloud border is not yet adhered.  I stamp the sentiments from Mouse House then adhere this flat to the sky panel.  This scene panel is mounted onto an A2 card base to finish.
