It’s time for a new release at Craftin Desert Divas! This release we have a yummy baking themed digi set full of adorable critters. For my first card with the release I decided to highlight the sweet kangaroo image.
I began my card by creating my layout in a word document. I used the oven glove image to create a repeating pattern for my background, which I made the washed out so it would be nice and subtle. I then overlaid the sentiment which is also from the Delicious Wishes set as well the kangaroo. Once I was happy with the arrangement I printed it directly onto my card base.
The colouring of the image was very straightforward. I used my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, and went to other Earth Browns for the kangaroo. I decided to make her tummy lighter than the rest of her body, and also made the joey a lighter colour too. I used similar browns for the cookies.
I went with greys for the oven tray as well as the shading on the kangaroo’s chef hat. I then moved away from the neutrals and added a new pop of colour of other some blue greens for the kangaroo’s apron and oven gloves.
I’m quite pleased with this card. The image is very sweet and I’m happy with my colouring of it. I really like the subtle interest added by the gloves in the background. It was a fun card to make and provided inspiration for some of the other cards I made with the release. Be sure to check back to see those, and head over to the Craftin Desert Divas blog and Facebook group to see what the rest of the team has made with these sweet new digis.
