I’m back with another look at the new release at Craftin Desert Divas! Make sure you check out the Craftin Desert Divas blog to see more of the release. The digital release this month is the Delicious Wishes set. You can find another card that I made with it here. For this card I decided to combine two of the images from the set to make a cute clean and simple scene.
I began by creating my arrangement in Word. I used both the racoon and mouse images along with the sentiment from the set, then printed them directly onto my card base to create a one layer card.
I used Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers to colour the images. I started with the racoon, using some different greys to colour him in. I also used some very light grey to add dimension to the racoon’s hat. I used the same light grey to add dimension on my other white elements too.
For the mouse I decided to go with some light creamy brown colours. I then used darker grey for the stool, racoon’s bowl, and the sponge of the cake. I decided on orange for the filling of the cake, and used similar shades to create the golden buttons on the mouse’s outfit. I decided to go with pink icing on top of the cake as well as in the racoon’s bowl. For the strawberry on top of the cake I went with the obvious red with green leaves.
I decided to bring in another pop of colour and used a some turquoise to colour the cake stand and the handle of the whisk.
This really was a very straightforward card to make. It’s a simple design and most of the time involved with it is the colouring. I liked that I was able to make a quick card but if I’d wanted to spend longer on this particular card I could have added a background either by drawing one in or perhaps by using digis such as Kitchen Accessories set.
