Here I am... just as I said I would be (for a change, lol) with my DT card for the new challenge starting today over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge; I've made a diorama card, sort of, here it is.
If you want to make a "proper" diorama card there are a few excellent tutorials out there, here's one. I did do a third layer, with the intention of cutting out the school house and having that on a middle layer, but (after taking an age to colour it) I decided it was too much... oh well I have a great background coloured and ready to go for another card :-) I fussy cut the boy then stuck him to the front, and yes - cutting the shoelaces was fiddly, lol, The good thing about these cards is that, while they're really 3D when open, they flatten right down for postage.
I used two of Di's Digis on this card, Boy Off to School and School House. I coloured the clouds with Versmark ink and a cardboard stencil and coloured the images with Copics adding some extra shadows with Prismacolor Pencils. Totally Papercrafts has Favourite Colour for their challenge - I love all colour :-) Great Impressions wants us to make a Square Card, which I have, My Time to Craft wants to see an Aperture - the front of this card is more aperture than card, lol. Paper Pretties has School Rules, Clearly iStamp has Back to School and Pile It On has Outdoors so I'm in there too.
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Class Act pad, the border around the aperture is gold stickers (peel offs) and the metal embellishment at the top is from my stash. Creatalicious Challenges has For the Boys and Hobbycutz has Card for a Child so I'm entering those too!
I made a small card to use as a jotting panel on the back, after sticking it on I realised that it made the balance all wrong - as in the card kept tipping over backwards! - so I had to rip it off and stick just a single layer jotting panel on, not pretty but it works, lol.
Bearly Mine Challenges, The Crazy Challenge and Through the Craftroom Door all have Anything Goes challenges running, so I'm entering them.
Pop on over to Di's Challenge and check out the rest of the team's work - awesome!! Hope you get a chance to enter the challenge too - there's a great prize on offer from MarkerPop, and if you use one of Di's great digis you're in the running for an extra prize too, WooHoo!!
Well that's it for today. I'll be back in a few days, probably, lol. Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna
