The current challenge over at Card Cupids is to make a 3D or Pop-Up Card. The sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, whose images are among my favorites.
Since the image I chose to work with was Harry Potter, I decided to make a magical card. It looks unassuming at first.
How’d it do that?
I can’t really tell you, because I made it up as I went along. I found a picture of something similar somewhere on the internet, but couldn’t find a tutorial, so I decided to wing it. I’ll make another in the near future and actually record the steps.
My least favorite part is my handwriting. I made 6 tags before I finally decided this one was good enough. I need to take a penmanship class. I love the word penmanship.
I do have to say, I think this is the best coloring I’ve ever done. Harry’s robes are showing up lighter in the picture than they do in real life (I swear). The scarf is my favorite part, though. The color combo on scarlet is R89, E59, and E17, with a touch of E13 to lighten up the bottom. The gold is Y15, 26 and 28.
Eeee! Isn’t Harry cute, though? If you enter this challenge, you have a chance to win 7 free Bugaboo digis. That’s right, seven! Just post a link to your card here and wait for your name to be picked. Good luck!
