Hello again everyone, it's Karen and I'm guest designing for Gerda Steiner Designs again today and I've got another mammoth card to share with you.
Supplies Used: Gerda Steiner Designs "Big Guy" stamp set GSD845, and "Woolly Big Love" GSD846. Vellum, Copic markers, Cosmic Shimmer Embossing Sprinkles in Snow Storm, Momenta letter dies and Cosmic Shimmer Luna Paste in Moonlight Pearl ( just on the mountain tops), Cosmic Shimmer Colour Cloud ink in Clear Day.
My card measures 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" and I started off by colouring in the mammoths with a combination of Copic markers and finished off with pencil crayons to create a woolly look. I fussy cut them out, being careful to also cut around their horns. Next, I stamped a line of mountains across the upper portion of my card and coloured them in with Copic markers. I'm sorry I don't remember which markers I used, but it was a combination of Blue Violets and Cool Greys. Then I coloured in the sky by blending a little of the Clear Day ink with a sponge applicator, and leaving some white areas for clouds. I added a few streaks to the ice at the bottom of the card with Copic markers in Blue Green shades, just to give a hint of colour to the ice. I then covered the ice portion of the card with a piece of heavyweight vellum, folding the edges over to the back of the card front and adhering them with double sided adhesive tape to the back of the card front. I applied a little glue on the front along the bottom edge of the mountains and sprinkled on the embossing sprinkles. These are large chunks of embossing powder, and need to be heated from beneath or they will just blow away. But they give a fun, snowy texture to the card. After heat setting them, I added the small shadow mammoth in the background. I die cut the hug letters and coloured them in with Copic markers, again using the Blue Green shades as I wanted them to look icy. I attached them to each of the mammoths, and then glued the mammoths to the card front. I added a little more glue and embossing sprinkles on the ice and around their feet and heat set them. The sentiment was combined from both stamp sets, and I clear heat embossed it. Finally, I added some of the Luna Paste to the tops of the mountains.Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you're having a great day!
