It is very simple to make. You just need 5 colors of cardstock, 12 inches wide for the yellow, black and grey and some scraps of white, red and light blue. Since it has a lot of detail, I chose not use patterned paper. The size of the finished card is about 6x6 inches.
Here we go!
Import in CDS and resize image to 14 inches wide.
Change function to write for the sketches of the children.
Select the insert contour and the doodle and click attach.
Make sure before cutting that both, the insert and the doodle show on the mat preview.
I used the American Crafts slick writer black pen that fits perfectly on the pen holder of the explore. I tried with both, a fine 0,3 and a 0.5 tip marker. I guess I like the 0,5 better cause it looks more like a stamp.
The kids on the first card were coloured with the American Crafts Amy Tangerine Yes Please Slick Writer Markers on a yellow cardstock. The second one is white cardstock coloured it with distress inks and a Tim Holtz's water pen. I saw this technique an Rangerink.com a couple of weeks ago and decided to give it a try. Tap the ink pad on an acrylic block or your craft mat and grab the color with the water brush.
To paint with a lighter color, water mist once or twice. Ink the images carefully. Apply a second coat if you want more vibrant colors or want to give a shadow effect.
I assembled everything in about 30 minutes with Aleene's tacky glue pen. This is a very precise glue pen, great for small parts.
I used 5 pieces of black circles for each tire, to make them thicker.
The card folds flat. so you can send it over the mail. ;-)
Enjoy! and remember, don't share the file, share the link to my blog and give credits to the hard work if you make and post.
