Old Challenges - Truly Scrumptious #8 & Copic Colour Challenge #15

I haven't blogged for a few weeks, not because I didn't want to but because I couldn't get any projects finished. My life has been taken over by two ducklings that are gorgeous but require a lot of love and attention. Unfortunately, mum is not on the scene so I am their new mummy. They are worse than children for crying when you leave them alone. This weekend they are 3 weeks old and have allowed me some time to finish a project I started over two weeks ago, for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge no. 8 and the Copic Colour Challenge no. 15. I combined the challenges to make a folded card and colour it using C3 Cool Grey, R59- Cardinal Red & YG63 - Pea Green and a few other colours to get shading.
Card Front
The wall was created using the copic ciao pen C3 along with C1, W1, W3 W5, E33 and the blender pen. This is the first fold to open. The image is a magnolia rubber stamp and I have decoupaged his trouser legs. The picture doesn't show that so you will have to take my word for it!
1st Fold
Everything on this page has been made. I started with a pale blue piece of paper that has a gingham effect. I then made myself a cloud from a scrap piece of card and then positioned it randomly over the paper. I found the technique on the StampArtic blog. Which was lucky because up until this point I didn't know how to finish it. I used Tim Holt Distress Ink - China Blue to colour around the shape. I stopped part way down so that I could colour in some hills using various green copic pens. The tree I drew myself, coloured with copics and cut out. The foliage I made from a piece of scrunched tracing paper and two different green ink pads. To make the grass I ripped strips of green paper and then coloured it with copic pens.
Final Fold
More clouds and hills. The plane I found on the web (sorry can't remember exactly where from) I added Happy Birthday to the banner and coloured using copics. The verse I found free on the web and then layered it with silver paper and blue bazzill card. All finished just in time for my Nephew's birthday. Here are a few photos of the ducklings. Eight days old and now 23 days old. Thank you for the lovely comments and my first two followers. Thanks for looking.
