A Wobbly Birthday - Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not, #316

The optional theme for this week's card challenge is "a ray of sunshine".  Fortunately the Cupcakes & Carousel DSP has a perfect design for this challenge.



The Carousel horse was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock, die cut into a circle, and matted with a larger Bermuda Bay circle.  A wobble was adhered to the underside of the art piece before attaching it to the mat. This was attached to the card front.

One of the patterns in the Cupcakes & Carousel paper pack looks like rays of sunshine coming from the upper left corner, which fits perfectly with the theme for this sketch.  This was placed upon a Very Vanilla layer, and then onto a Bermuda Bay base.

The sentiment, stamped with Bermuda Bay ink, was matted with Daffodil Delight card stock and added to the lower right card below the art piece.

In making this card, I played around with a few techniques:

One, I stamped the image twice,  and after fussy cutting it out I placed it on top of the original using dimensionals.  This gives the horse a 3D effect.

Two, I added a wobble before adhering the art piece to it's mat.  Now, when the horse is touched, it starts to wobble, almost spin, making the card interactive (see the picture below).


 

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Carousel Birthday, Timeless Texture
Inks: Black Memento, Watercolor pencils, Bermuda Bay
Papers: Bermuda Bay, Very Vanilla, Cupcakes & Carousel DSP, Daffodil Delight
Accessories: Layering Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, Action Wobble (non SU)

Now it's your turn to make something using this week's sketch.  Remember you have two weeks (Deadline April 24) to make something.  Don't forget to upload it to the Try Stampin' on Tuesday or Not blog site, or their Facebook site. On April 18, Cheryl with input from the designers,  will select 3 of the favourite cards of the week.  While you're doing this take a look at the work of the other designers, and leave them a comment.  We all like feedback.
I look forward to seeing your work.
