Hello Bluebird | RELEASE DAY - Blue skies ahead
It's Release Day over at Hello Bluebird! If you haven't seen it yet, you can see the new 7 stamp sets (with coordinating dies of course) as well as the 5 new standalone dies here.
And there is a free set too (Singing in the rain) with a 100$ purchase!
Here it is my first card for the release, featuring the newest Rain or Shine and Gallery frame #6.
I really love frame dies, they make creating scenes so easy!
The critters of the stamp were a bit big, so I cannot fit all of them in the frame dies, that's how I had the idea to create a sort of comic page, with a triple scene. The left and the right ones are monochromatic (I discovered it is really really fun to color only with greys! Thanks to Marine Simon for the inspiration) because it rains.
The central panel has colors, because rain stopped and there are blue skies ahead! I think we all need blue skies ahead, especially during these times.
I stamped and colored the triple scenes on a piece of 4,25"x5,5" Neenah Solar White panel and I colored everything with copics (see below for color combos). To create the rain effect, I used a 0.5 Gelly Roll Pen and a ruler: be sure to create dashed and dotted lines for a more realistic result.
I then layered the black frame and the light blue patterned paper on it.
I really hope you like the result!
