And now, let's move to my project!
A while ago, I saw a picture on Pinterest with an alligator's mouth open and many banners inside that were creating a sentiment. So, when I saw all the little banners of the kit, I instantly thought about it.
I firstly stamped on a piece of copy paper all the banners with a black ink, to understand how much space I needed and then I sketched the alligator's mouth. When I liked the result, I copied my drawing on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and I started copic coloring. I went for a no-line look, and as always, I added some details with coordinated Polychromos pencils.
I then moved to my sentiments, especially the one contained in the banner.
As I wanted to coordinate with the patterned paper, I decided to use the same colors of the kit, so I took out some Premium Dye pads: Amarena Cherry, Fire Coral, Butterscotch, Prickly Pear, Jalapeño Popper, Summer Splash, Tropical Teal and Eiffel Tower. Here I realized I didn't have the P letter to create the "happy" word. I decided to stamp the letter R instead of P and to cover the small line with a similar pencil color.
When everything was stamped, I hand drew the lines of the banner's rope and I added the two small sentiments in the upper part and at the bottom.
To complete my card, I matted the whole scene with a piece of patterned paper from Party Time pad.
Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like the result! Let me know what do you think and be sure to head over to the MFT blog: there is a bloghop and you can win a 50$ shopping spree!
