It's a Pinata Party!

It's a Pinata Party!

 

Hello, Tallie here. I'm filling in for Deborah today with this bright and fun birthday scene featuring the Mama Elephant Piñata Party and Stackable Friends stamp sets. These sets are great for creating mini scenes, though I think this little mole is cheating as he has his glasses on! He has to jump higher though, so I guess it's fair.

 

 

I started out by stamping the elements of the scene from the Piñata Party set onto some blending cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink. I used a sticky note here and there to mask off the sweets so I could pile them up as if the piñata had been hit. I used a black liner to add some dots - something I should have waited to do until I'd coloured in the background as you can see some of them smudged a little. No big deal in this case as it gives some movement to the card, but just a warning to you if you use really light markers.

 

 

I coloured the scene in with my Copic markers, chosing bright and bold colours. With the background, I added some dot detail, partly to cover up my smudging but also to add some interest into an otherwise dull colour wash. It is a party, after all!

 

 

I used a sentiment from the Stackable Friends stamp set and stamped it centrally under the scene.

 

A bright and fun card fit for any birthday celebration!

 

Thanks for reading, happy crafting!
