Studio Katia March Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Hi everyone! Today I am really excited to be back with this post, part of the Studio Katia March Release Blog Hop! This is a two-day celebration with tons of inspiration and prizes along the way, so make sure to read this post until the end to find out more! 
For my project today I used images from the Whimsical Town set, which is one of my favorite sets in this amazing release!



I created the background panel by blending Distress Oxides in Blueprint Sketch and Shaded Lilac over some Bristol Smooth Cardstock. I added water droplets for a fun look.
I then colored the houses and the clouds from the Whimsical Town set with Spectrum Noir markers and die cut them with the coordinating dies. I adhered some of them flat onto my background, and I raised a few with some foam tape. 




I popped up the panel on my card base with some craft foam, and framed it with some gray cardstock strips. I added white gel pen highlights to the houses, and scattered a lot of the gorgeous, newly released Iridescent Bubbles all over the sky.
I stamped the sentiment on the inside of the card, and I also stamped a few houses around it with Memento ink in London Fog.



I also created a video tutorial for this card, you can watch it down below. Don’t forget to let me know what you think about it! And if you want to see more from me, you can subscribe to my channel by clicking on the button below :) Thank you so much! :)

When I first saw these houses I fell in love, but I didn't really know how I would use them on cards. So I particularly appreciate your card, because it helps me see how I can use them. And it shows me that they're just as much fun to color in as they look! Thanks for sharing and participating in this bloghop!
