Hi there! It’s Keeway here from Kiwi Koncepts today and I have an adorable card to share with you! Tonic introduced their Adorables line recently and as you can probably guess, they are absolutely the cutest.
My favorite one in this collection is Sammy Takes It Easy and so I have picked out this set to work with for my card this month.
In addition, this was also my first time working with the Nuvo Marker Pen Collection which was pleasantly easy to use and blend with!
How I do it
- Sloths: (coat) 472 Garlic Clove, 478 Brown Sugar, 464 Coconut Shell; (face) 473 Sweet Vanilla, 477 Sand Castle, 449 Delicate Rose
- Large Leaves: 410 Perisan Lime, 412 Pea Pod, 416 Vine Leaf
- Small Leaves: 413 Bamboo Leaf, 415 Pine Grove
- Flower: 373 Pink Grapefruit, 374 Tiger Lily, 375 Plum Tomato
- Branch: 478 Brown Sugar, 477 Sand Castle, 473 Sweet Vanilla
As you can probably notice from the trend, I didn’t extend past each marker pen collection when choosing my colors to blend so they are grouped together and blend beautifully together.
Since these sloths are each holding onto a tree branch, I wanted to give it a platform to hang from so I die cut a rectangle frame using the Mixed Scalloped & Straight Edge Rectangle Layering Die Set.
I die cut the frame four times and layered them together for thickness.
Next, I blended a soft background using Mint Macaroon hybrid ink for the top half and Lime Burst hybrid ink for the bottom half. I picked up some similar watercolors and added a gentle touch of splatter for interest.
One last time before assembly is to stamp the sentiment.
Thereafter, I added the frame to the background and the sloths and foliage all around it with foam tape.
Finally, I used the Soft Mint Nuvo Crystol Drops to add a small drop in the center of each flower. Thanks for joining me today and hope to see you next time!
