Monica shares this fun Yeti card with us using just FIVE Chameleon pens!
Chameleon pens used: Blue Violet (BV4), Aqua Marine (BG4), Spring Meadow (YG3), Warm Sunset (YO3), Crimson Red (RD4).
Other materials used: Lawn Fawn clear stamps and Lawn cuts yeti, set, go; happy trails; home sweet home. Lawn cuts stitched borders; stitched hillside borders, Memory Box die Puffy Clouds, Stapendous clear stamp set Snowy Short Stacks, Versafine Onyx Black pad, Clear embossing powder, Neenah White card stock, White, Green, and Light Blue card stocks, White gel pen, Black pen. Double sided tape and foam glue pads.
1) Stamp the images on the white Neenah card stock with Versafine black, then emboss them with clear powder.
2) Start colouring the big trees with YG3 pen: for each section infuse the pen for 5-6 seconds.
3) Colour all the trees in the same way: small trees require a 3-4 seconds infusion.
4) Use the BV4 pen to make light shadows on the yeti’s body: infuse for 10 seconds.
5) Colour the curtains in the trailer and the yeti’s mouth with RD4 pen: infuse 4 seconds each.
6) Using the same colour, paint the car in two steps: the roof first and then the lower part,infusing the pen for 8-9 seconds each (don’t worry about the windows and the wheels, we’ll adjust them later). Add pure red in the yeti’s mouth.
7) With YO3 pen, colour the upper part of the trailer infusing for 10 seconds.
8) Do the same for the lower part using BG4: infuse for 10 seconds.
9) Colour the trailer door with RD4 pen infusing for 6 seconds. Then add the same colour to the cheeks of the yeti, infusing it for 4 seconds each.
10) Die cut all the images and cut out also the car windows.
11) Cut the pieces of the card: a 29 cm x 12,5 cm light blue card stock folded in two for the base; a 14,5 cm x 12,5 cm green card stock for the frame; a couple of white hills and some clouds.
12) Using the double sided tape, attach the former hill to the card base; attach the latter using some foam glue pads.
13) Add a couple of clouds, attaching the latter with foam glue pads. Then add the green frame using again the foam glue pads too.
14) Tie one big tree on the roof of the car by adding some string.
15) Set the scene as you like, using the foam glue pads to attach all the elements on the card.
16) At last, add a couple of light dots to the yeti’s cheeks and some polka dots to the trailer curtains using the white gel pen. Use the black pen to colour the wheels of the car and the trailer, and the white gel pen to colour the centre of the car wheels. Complete the card with the sentiment.
We love how Monica has split the trees into 3 sections to add more shape, what is your favourite part of the design?
