Background Clouds + Scenic

Au Revoir friends!  I'm closing my craftroom and heading off for a two weeks family vacation.  But here's a card before I go.  

This is my oldie but goodie Sherry T. Designs -A Random Fan Travel Bug rubber stamp.  I have her over a year now and finally get to use her. 


First I color this cutie so I have a better idea of how large my layer for the background is going to be. Then to create my background, I begin with the clouds.  For my template, I used the Taylored Expressions - Build a Scene - Rolling Clouds and then outline and colored in with copic marker (B000).  At first I tried stamping with distress ink, but that didn't turned out too well.  That's what the bright blue is on the cloud template.

Next, I outline two hills using the Taylored Expressions - Build a Scene - Rolling Hills with a pencil and then sketch in the road.

After that...bring in the splash of colors!

Color Combo:

cloud: B000
hills: YG00, YG03, YG06, G24, G43, G46
road: N0, N2, N4

Having done the Power Poppy "CUT-IT-OUT" challenge a few weeks ago, I'm hook onto just cutting out everything!  Haha!  So after coloring this gorgeous girl, I SNIP her up and popped her onto the road with foam tape for an added dept.   Notice the gray shadow effect around the image?  This is new technique I discovered from my lamp's light.  You know that's the cool thing about coloring at 11 p.m besides getting bad vision.  Haha.  The lamp light open your vision to a whole new level, allowing you to see what you will likely missed during the day! 

Color Combo:

Black Multi-liner
Hair: N0, N2, N4, N6, N8
skin: E0000, E000, E00, RV10
outfit: RV02, RV04, RV10

I couldn't resist not adding a touch of humor to this CAS card.  So I hammered in this road sign. Beach or back to the craft-room?  Hmmm...let me think about that!  I think I'll hit the road and take that surprise vacation trip!

And now friends...Au Revoir!  Have a lovely rest of your June wherever you may be.  Smiles & hugs from your truly...
