Have you seen the geometric deer heads as home decor? They tend to be all the rage right now! How fun is it to bring it into your art? A 3D geometric lion head is a powerful image.
It is easy to do and takes little time to create a stunning embellishment!
To create this lion you need the stamp set from the January 2019 Hedgehog Hollow kit, stamp platform, black ink, white card stock and pop dots.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to create it:
Told you it was easy 🙂
Take a look:
To make sure I got the pattern straight, I used mini Misti stamp possitioner which makes stamping much easier.
Once I was happy with the amount of stamping I did, I trimmed down the paper to be slightly smaller than the card base.
Next, I stamped out the word ‘Bloom’ with brown ink. I used scissors to cut the word out and I left a small white border around the it.
I decided to put the word towards the bottom part of the kraft paper and I popped it up using the foam tape.
The last thing I added were some white Nuvo drops that you also get in the October hedgehog hollow box.
That’s it for today, thank you so much for joining me!
Hello again! It’s Kari and today I am so excited to share another Geometric animal card with you. Actually…TWO cards (I couldn’t stop creating with these…Lol)
The backgrounds were fun to make using the geometric patterns. For the owl card, I used Distress Oxide ink and repeatedly stamped one of the designs. For the wolf card, I white heat embossed the design onto grey cardstock.
I used both the Owl and the Wolf imaged with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and my favorite secret for keeping the watercolors where I want them: Embossing Powder!
I have a video to show you just how fun this technique is, watch it below or on YouTube:
I popped up those images using double layers of foam tape. Here’s a better look:
I hope you enjoyed these projects today and that you were inspired to try some watercoloring yourself! See you next time,
The other day we printed off the supply list for all Hedgehog Hollow personnel so that they’d have their supplies for their classes at Creativation.
He does all of our videos, how could he not know what some of the items were? HAHA, he’s so funny! So in the spirit of silliness, and in the spirit of education because everyone has to start their learning somewhere, we created this fun video!
