Creating Simplified Raised Accents


I wanted to share a card I made for the newest Crafter's Companion Release! Bebunny will be out soon and available for purchase (10/25/13) on the Crafter's Companion website.  This image is from the Close to Your Heart set.

Isn't he so cute???

I wanted to share how I created this card.

I came up with a color scheme by choosing a patterned paper that I liked.

I stamped the image twice and colored in some of the balloons on the first image and then cut them out.  Then I continued the same process on the second image.  I only chose three balloons to pop up.  Sometimes with raised accents, less is more.  I've found that keeping it simple is a good thing.

I used Double Sided Adhesive Foam to pop up the balloons.

I fussy cut the bunny out and then adhered the balloons to the image.  I even colored the balloons that were going to be covered up.  That way, if you look at the image from the side (like the final picture below), there is no white showing underneath.

Everything was colored in using Spectrum Noir markers.  I used colors CG2, CG3, PP5, PP6, CT2, CT4, CR10, CR11, CR6, CR8, BT3, BT4 (balloons) and PP1, PP3, BG1 and the blender (for the bunny).

Lastly, I added the sentiment and created a banner for it by using a square punch in the corner of the strip.

Thanks for stopping by!
