Taking a break on an adventure!

Hi everyone,

It’s Sandra from Portugal. I hope you are having a great summer!

This month’s card can be used for several different occasions: birthday, travelling, inspirational quotes, it all depends on the inscription one writes inside the card. 😊

I used a Paper Shelter digi stamp called “Where're We Goin'?”.

I started by choosing the card papers and probable layout, because that would help me picking which markers to use. I have a beautiful paper pad from Bo Bunny – Felicity Collection, and I decided I would go with one of it's papers.  

I die cut a frame with one of the papers and picked some markers to match the collection’s colours:

I started by colouring the suitcase, using E55/57/59 for leather, Y00/11/15 and YR23 for the metal parts, and E44/47 for the straps.

I chose BG72/75/78 for the shorts:

And coloured the coat in salmon, layering R11 and then mapping the shadows with R20.

I coloured over the mapped shadows with R22.

And blended from R21 to R20. This is what the finished coat looks like:

I used E40/41 for the shirt and E000/00/11/21 for the skin. I coloured the eyes with YG11, and the nails and lips with R32/35. 

To colour the sandals I used E40/41 for the bottoms, BG72/75 and Y11/15 and YR23 for the straps, and R20 for the flower. The green eyes were "screaming" for a red hair, which I coloured with YR23/27 and E59.

To finish I coloured the hat with E40/41/42 and BG72/75. This is the finished image framed:

And the assembled card using one of the papers from my favourite paper pad:

Now all the markers listed:

Hair: YR23/27 and E59
Skin: E000/00/11/21 and E93 for cheeks
Nails and Lipstick: R32/35
