I am back with another DT Inspiration project for World Wide Open Design Team Challenge blog. Julia Spiri is our resident sponsor and today I am showing you the most brilliant school bus you have ever seen. The digi is called Whimsy School Bus
This project has no coloring on it! Yes, you read that correctly. I decided that I would paper piece the school bus. I opted to go with the traditional yellow, but use different patterns. I also decided that this was a perfect image for a shaped card. So I went to work in my Silhouette Studio software. I sized the image so that it would make a smaller card – 4.25×3 inches. I traced the shape of the bus to cut out the complete outline and moved just the shape onto another mat and cut out two of them. These two formed my cardbase. I scored an 1/8 inch line down the left side of the one to create a hinge so that the card could open. I then printed the image out on a mottled pink patterned paper that I used for the bottom layer. Then I also printed it out onto the plaid paper, the dotted paper and the plain yellow paper. I traced the various parts of the bus for each of the printouts that I wanted in my final rendition to create cutlines.
