Hi and welcome to another Dream Valley challenge. We are challenging you to use Summer Colours, and are sponsored by Di’s Digi Designs.
This is my version of the Rio Olympics, which are due later this Summer. Clearly this was the award ceremony for the balancing bones event! As you can see old Grumpy Cat is not pleased he only placed third, whilst the bird is trying to gain some tips by sneaking a peek at the Gold Medallist with his winning balance. Naturally as I don’t know anyone personally competing in the Rio Olympics I turned it into a birthday card!
I made the background by first cutting a shaped diecut out of some card which I overlaid onto the background card, over the top of a Clarity stencil. I then inked through with Tim Holtz’s DIs in Picked Rapsberry, Peacock Feathers, Scattered Straw and Citron.
My images are all from Katzelkraft. From the Les chiens, Les Chats Russes and Les Piafs stamps sheets, along with the accesories and the winner’s podium from Les drôles d'accessoires.
I coloured them with DIs and copics.
The sentiment diecut is Spellbinders and the Number 1 sentiment comes from Crafty Individuals’ Winning Hare.
This second pic shows the colours a bit more brightly, but makes the images appear flat to the card, and they are dimensional as I added them with foam tape, which you can see in the top pic.
The whole thing was matted only purple shimmer paper and onto a scalloped card base.
