Welcome to the Three Room Studio Saturday Challenge!
Candice here and I'm your challenge host this week! This week's challenge is: slimline OR square card!
I love slimline cards because there's so much room to make a scene! I know it's a little weird to say this, but I honestly miss my hospital-based research office (which I haven't been to in over a year). One of my coworkers has a birthday coming up, so I thought I'd create a scene to look like our office for the card.
I started by roughly stamping out my scene on a scrap sheet of paper without masking or anything fancy -- I just wanted to get an idea of where things were going to go so I could determine what needed to go "in front" which would be stamped first and then masked off on the real card. Once I had an idea where things were headed, I cut out a slimline card front (3.5" x 8.5") and got started. First, I stamped the chairs from the "Cubicle Zirconia" stamp set and created masks for them using Post-It Notes. Believe it or not, that was the only masking needed for this card! Then I stamped the desks, filing cabinet, water cooler, computers, and desk accessories using the "Cubiculture" stamp set.
All my stamping was done with Gina K Designs Obsidian Black Amalgam ink because this involved a lot of Copic coloring! I colored the whole scene with Copics except the floor, which I opted to color using a gray colored pencil and then blend out with Gamsol. Lastly, I white heat embossed the sentiment from "Cubicle Zirconia" (this set has tons of great sentiments you can team up together to create different messages!) on a black cardstock banner. I adhered the banner down to the card front and adhered the card front to a top folding 3.5" x 8.5" card base.
I hope you enjoyed today's slimline scene card, and that you'll join in on our challenge!
