Well I got another Get Well card made for my hospital "Healing" art project.
I used Broken Arm Tilda... so I had to make a scene depicting just how this sad event occured. I started out making a Step Card. Then I thought "why not make actual steps and a railing? Skateboarders often try to slide down these rails...
Looks like poor Tilda needs more practice.
I started out with a base of 4.5" by 12" Bazzil Blackbird cardstock, scored it at 1.25, 1.5, 2.75, 4.5, 4,75, 6.5, 8.75, 9 and 11.25 inches and folded it for the stairs. At the back, I attached a seperate piece of cardstock measuring 4.5 by 6.5 inches for the background papers to attach to.
The background paper and matching patterned paper on the step and skateboard are both the same two-sided BoBunny Unforgettable #12U963 paper. Since this paper is all neutrals (grays and beiges), I coloured Tilda in neutrals only too. Silver paper was used behind the background paper and sentiment.
Prima flowers were stacked up, attached with flower brads and centered with silver sticky brads. The white ribbon is meant to mirror Tilda's head bandages...
The skateboard is a piece of patterned paper using my corner rounders and curled with my scissors at each end to make the curves. I outlined the board with silver ink to mimic a metal edge. I drew the wheels, coloured them in with Copics and glued them to the skateboard. To keep the shape of the board, I attached it to the card using a double height of foam dimensionals.
The hardest part of the card was that railing. It took two test models to come up with the proper cuts and scores to create it in 3D. I used heavy silver cardstock and attached it using my ScoreTape inbetween the steps.
Here are the Copics used:
Tilda: N0, W1, W3, W5, W7
Skateboard wheels: C2, C3, C5
Here's hoping Tilda doesn't try that trick again.
