Hey, peeps, it's my turn for a DT post for Visible Image, and I'm still in Christmas mode (and will be till early January - I just keep going while I've got all the Christmas stuff out).
I had these three characters from the Christmas Jumper set already coloured from a previous session, so I just fussy cut them ready for the next stage.
These are the Zig colours I used:
I placed the cut out images on craft cardstock, then masked a small area underneath each image where the Ho!s were going to go.
Then I removed the images and splattered the card with white gouache.
I use a plastic shot glass for the gouache. It dries out when not in use, but then I just have to spritz a few drops of water to revive it and it's good to go.
My original idea was for the three images to be wobble action, but when it got to the construction stage, there was too much wobble for the size of the images and they were sitting too proud, so I abandoned that and went with setting them at a jaunty angle using foam tape to give them a bit of height and imply movement.
The Christmas Jumper set is such a fun set. Apart from these images and the Ho! sentiment, you get the jumper and two other sentiments - it's very versatile! Pop on over to the Visible Image store and have a look!
