Hanna Stamps is having a Guest Designer call and I decided to throw my hat into the ring. If you are interested, you can read about it here. I really do love these stamps, you know how often you see Riley on my blog! I have enjoyed making cards with the Hanna sets that I have too, the images are fun to color and with all the accessories, you can change things up and make things look different even though you are using the same set. But lately, I have been having soooo much fun combining different sets to create different scenes. It's fun to see how many different ways you can use these stamps and accessories and get so many cool scenes.
This is the card that I made for the guest design team call. I combined the Granny Hanny, I Dream of Hanna and To the Beach sets. I made the beach scene by drawing in my sand line, then the water, then colored the rest to be sky. The water has some Liquid Applique on it to mimic waves. The genie is colored with copics. I wasn't quite sure what to do to create the shear look over her legs until I decided to lightly go over her legs with some pink Twinkling H20 paints. Since you can see through those paints, you can still see Hanna's legs, but there is also the appearance of shear material. I outlined the pant legs with Copics to match the rest of the outfit and then added the paints. The lamp was stamped, painted and cut out, but I needed to be sturdy enough to hold this panel closed so I glued it to a thin piece of chipboard and then cut it out again. Are you wondering what Granny's wish was?When you open the panel you can see that Granny's wish came true! He is none other than the body builder from the To the Beach set.
It took me a while to come up with a layout that covered him and had the continuity of the scene on the genie panel and the body builder panel. I wanted to make sure that my sand, water and sky matched whether the card was opened or closed. I tried a couple of different layouts but this worked best. To do this I cut my card base at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, and scored on the long side at 3 inches to make the panel. Since Copics bleed through, I cut another 5 1/2 x 3 inch panel to stamp the genie on.
I think I have started to figure out how to take decent pictures with my camera. I can tell a difference anyway. Thanks for stopping by!
