Time for another challenge over at the World Wide Open Design Time Challenge blog and here is my DT inspiration project. Julia Spiri is the resident sponsor of our challenge. I love Julia’s images and this one is no exception. This lady’s name is Mila and her scooter is such fun. 

I imported Mila into Silhouette Studio so that I could create a cutline for her and resize her according to the size of my card by creating a 4.25×5.5 inch rectangle in the software and then importing her into it. I wanted her to not cover the background altogether, but still be large enough to be a very specific focal point. Once that decision was made, I printed her out onto Daler-Rowney Drawing paper and colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I used the tooth of the paper to provide the texture of the tires.

Once I had colored her, I returned her to the Silhouette to cut her out. I cut her shape out again out of black cardstock. Once I had both shapes, I cut the shadow off my colored image’s wheels so that the black cardstock shadow would be more visible. I ran my black marker along the edge of my colored cutout and then glued it to the black cardstock version. Once done, I added her to my cardpanel which is an offcut of patterned paper that I had in my stash. I then stamped the sentiment with a stamp from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stampset with Versamark ink and embossed it with white detail embossing powder.

You have a month to enter your project into our Anything Goes challenge at World Wide Open Design Team Challenge blog. The only requirement is that you must be on a design team somewhere in the world. We look forward to seeing your creations.
