The first step was to stamp the top shelf directly onto the card base and I did a little bit of masking to add the mouse. I stamped a number of the other images with copic friendly ink and coloured them with alcohol markers. I didn't do any shading on the spines of the books but used the various shades of the colour range to give some interest. I then fussy cut the books up to the stamp line as I didn't want the white border for the books. The second and third shelf of books were adhered with foam tape to add dimension. I made sure I added the books at random angles to give a bit of movement to the scene.
I added glossy accents to the cat's glasses and Wink of Stella glitter to the globe.
As I was designing the first card I had some images coloured that I wasn't going to use so created another simple card with them.
I wanted to show the movement of the pot plant falling so used a couple of shades of ink to stamp the image rotating to the floor.
Tip: I matched the mat on the card base to one of the colours I had used within the card to make the images pop a bit more.
I hope you have enjoyed these cards.
