Swing High!

Our challenge this time over at Di’s Digi Challenge is to use die cuts and/or punches on your project. For my project, I used Swing High Mouse from Di’s Digital Stamps. Such a cute one!

I colored the image using my Copic markers.

I wanted to create a scene for this little guy so I hunted through my die cuts and found some older dies that I had not used in awhile. I added some dark green card stock behind the fence to give the appearance of grass. I cut the clouds from some white card stock and shaded them with my Copics.

For the background, I wanted something other than just plain light blue card stock. I just received a new embossing folder from Simon Says Stamp, Dibble Dot and thought it would add some nice subtle texture to the background.

I fussy cut the image and some brown card stock to give the appearance of a tree branch. All that was left was to put everything together.

My sentiment is from Gina K and embossed in her Rose Gold (doesn’t appear to be available anymore) embossing powder. Again, I fussy cut the sentiment before adding it to my card.

To finish my card, I added went over his nose and eyes with my black glaze pen. I also went over the clouds with my Wink of Stella clear pen.

We hope you join us over at Di’s Digi Challenge. We would love to see your projects with die cuts and/or punches!
