Hello again! Hope you are all well. I'm down to the wire entering the card I'm sharing today in the challenge I made it for, so please bear with me.
I'll be adding to and finishing this post as soon as I get the card entered! Update: Done!
My card design began with this Split Coast Stampers sketch SC453, even though it might not be evident. I saw the bathtub where the two smaller circles are and the window with it's rounded top in place of the larger circle. And that's where I got the idea to put the "zoo" on the outside looking in, the sentiments saying let them wait and take time for yourself. Only problem was, the bathtub digi was the wrong way for the sketch, so I flipped it horizontally before printing it. (And I'll confess, I first thought to flip the sketch but then I was like, no you idiot, just flip the digi.)
Here's a pic of what the animals in the window looked like before I added the top paper layers and the window frame die. You can see the faint pencil outline of the window, which I drew first by lining up my papers after die cutting the window on my top paper. This enabled me to color the sky and arrange/adhere the animals and clouds to my liking. At that point, I really wanted to make a shaker out of it but no time. After the top paper layers are added, the window frame die cut goes inside the window aperture, so it covers up the pencil marks, yay!
On the inside of the card I hand-stamped Papertrey Ink and Avery Elle sentiments on Prima paper mats. The bathtub is a digi by The Stamping Boutique (NLIB) and I colored with Promarkers and gel pens. The Keep Calm sentiment was computer generated by me.
