AllTuckedIn Main 1

For my second card I used the fabulous Stacey Yacula’s All Tucked In.  This stamp set is simply the cutest with so many adorable images and sentiments.  I had so much fun creating this card!!

I started out stamping my main image onto a sheet of Neenah White 110lb card stock and masking each additional image as I wanted it to appear some pieces were in front of the other.  While all my images were still masked, I started on my floor by simply drawing slanted lines for perspective and shading loosely with various Copic Sketch Markers to give the appearance of wooden floor boards.  I then did some ink blending to create the walls.  Once the floor and walls were done, I removed the masking paper to start coloring my images.

I had so much fun coloring in the images with my Copic Sketch Markers and creating depth with shading since this is mostly a single layer card.  I used the coordinating dies to die cut the picture frames and added some foam adhesive to give a little extra dimension. I heat embossed one of the coordinating sentiments from this set and adhered to my card panel using foam adhesive.  I definitely tried some new techniques with this card and I am so happy with the way it turned out!!
