DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS NEW RELEASE -- BOYS AND TOYS -- JUNE 3, 2022
Isn't this image just adorable?? The original image faces to the right, but I flipped it in the Silhouette Studio software. In doing so, I didn't realize that I would be making it look like he is driving somewhere "across the pond!" Oh well, I'm still happy with how this card turned out! 😍
I knew I wanted them to be driving down a bit of a curvy road, but I didn't have a die or cut file for that, so I did a search in the Silhouette Store to find this one. I cut it from white cardstock and inked it using Black Soot oxide ink. The yellow lines down the middle were inked with Squeezed Lemonade. While that dried, I colored the image with alcohol markers. To make the windshield look like glass, I colored it with a light blue, and then added Glossy Accents. This was also added to the headlights, the silver emblem on the hood, and the tire rims. Oh yes, and I used a silver metallic marker to color those rims and the emblem. I don't know about you, but I find it tricky to color with metallic markers, as they like to cover up the lines of the image! I try to be careful, but I did have to come in with a 03 Micron pen and go over those lines to bring them back.
For my background, I used a set of nature stencils from Recollections that includes not only the clouds and grass, but also mountains, and an ocean wave. I used Tumbled Glass oxide for the sky, and Mowed Lawn for the grass. My sentiment was created using Henry's ABC's from Lawn Fawn. These dies are my new obsession! I cut them 4 times from black cardstock and once from black glitter cardstock and layered them up for dimension. I didn't care for the white edge of the glitter paper, so I grabbed a black marker and went around the edges of all the letters. Incidentally, the exclamation point comes from Henry's 123's. I HAD to get both sets of dies! 😁
