Craftin Desert Divas: camping scene


For today’s card I used the Craftin Desert Divas Camping outdoor set (fire, signs, sausage stick, firefly), The Tribal outdoor set (mountains and caravan) and the Tribal lion.

I printed all my images on alcohol marker paper, cut them out and then colored them with alcohol  markers. As with the others I kept to the same palette, I only changed up the fur colors. But to make it all tie in with each other and to keep the color palette to a minimum, all the element colors are repeated. I added orange for the caravan.

For the background I used Distress Oxides (Mermaid lagoon and Cracked pistachio) I applied the most blue behind the  mountains, fading out toward the top.
I kept the background solid (no splatters and such)  as the scene deserves all the attention and there’s lots going on.

I adhered all the elements with either liquid glue or a bit of foamtape for dimension.
I made a slit in the lions arm so I could tuck in the stick, but in hindsight I could just have cut it on an angle…oh well you live and learn

I attached a firefly onto the lion’s nose as he’s smiling in such a way, it looked like one needed to be there. Then I added Nuvo drops morning dew on the bug to make it shiny.
