This is a card that took me ages to make. Its a side stepper card, it took me ages to colour in with my Promarkers. I have used my prize from Karens Doodles last week the Digi Tropical beach set which I love.
I made the base side step card first in blue card and used a corner rounder on the top corners. The rest is printed on white card and coloured with Promarkers. I then used Photoshop elements to create the layers (which is still new to me so had a bit of my hubbys help).
I have printed out the background image including the beach, sea, palm tree and sky and cut off the left hand tree to fit the stepper part on the 3rd step at the back. I then coloured the layer in.
I then started on the 2nd step using just the beach and the palm tree after mirroring them in PSE and then cut around the palm tree so 2nd layer just has the sand and the palm tree standing up (which doesn't really show in the photo)
I then started on the front layer cutting out the beach and the palm tree.
I printed out all the characters, coloured them in and then cut around each and stuck Herbert onto the front layer with foam pads, Rosie on the 2nd layer against the palm tree with foam pads and Bigsby on the third layer on top of the coconuts with foam pads to raise them from the card. I love colouring but this really took quite some time to colour. Unfortunately the photo doesn't really show the fab dimension on this card.
