Tiddly Inks Challenge #157 - May Flowers/New Release

Hello and good morning everyone -----

Here is my Design Team card for the Tiddly Inks Challenge #157. This is my first challenge card for them....yay!!!  The theme is 'May Flowers' so I combined it with this sweet image by Christy called 'Scooting By Wryn'it's a new release and will be available in the shop from today (it's available with a cat, dog or simply Wryn).

She's such a little cutie, and I thought she was crying out to be added to a scene of some description. I coloured both Wryn and her furry friend with Copics and everything else has been paper pieced, cut out and layered up. It took me ages - but it was worth it in the end :)

Here's What I Did
My card base is 7" x 7". I die cut a frame from white card using 2 different sized rectangular dies. The patterned papers and vellum were die cut to fit inside the frame; and then die cut again using a border die so they would look like hills. These were then glued into place.

The image was printed twice onto colouring card stock - on one image I only coloured the scooter tyres and wheel trims and then cut them out. On the other, I only coloured in Wryn and friend and again cut them out.

The scooter was then printed twice onto patterned paper and cut out. All the sections were then layered up onto the scooter along with Wryn using foam tape, and everything was finally added to the card base. To finish off I added lots of punched out yellow flowers to her basket and to the grassy areas, along with a little bit of glitter on the smiley sunshine.
