Our first day of peeks for the December release at Craftin Desert Divas and sharing these marvelous trolls with you!  Our house is a super hero house and these guys( & one gal) were a blast to color up!  They can be yours Monday 12/10!

CDD December release card 1 final

To create this fun long card to fit all of my marvelous trolls (since I can’t just pick one!) I used:

  • Marvelous Trolls stamp set (available 12/10)
  • Space Cadet digital stamp set for the earth
  • Burst stencil (available 12/10)
  • lots of oxide inks squeezed lemonade, fossilized amber, wild honey, abandoned coral, twisted citron, seedless preserves, blueprint sketch, iced spruce, hickory smoke, and black soot for the galaxy
  • versamark to heat emboss the sentiment
  • silver gel pen to add accents to the costumes

I scored an 8 1/2 x 11 thick white cardstock in half for my card base.  I then trimmed a piece of watercolor paper to 4 1/4 x 11 to ink the galaxy on.  I started my galaxy by taping the stencil over the top left area and inked with the light yellow and oranges.  I then took the stencil off and faded it with squeezed lemonade.  I worked my way out with darker colors, using lots of blending to the way I wanted it.  Next, I wet my paint brush and dipped in white paint and splattered my galaxy to create the stars.

For the earth I printed on my computer and colored with copic markers and inked to fade and blend the colors.  I colored the marvelous characters with copics and highlighted with the silver gel pen.  I pop dotted the earth and characters on the card and heat embossed the sentiment with black.
