Heres to You

Since I first saw this badger with his top hat I have imaged him as Hugh Jackman in the Greatest showman. I have no idea why as I am not implying that Hugh Jackman looks anything like a badger. I think it is the hat. Anyway back to card making!!!

I feel like he was the circus master and so felt he needed his own big top. I have tried to shape this as a big top in the past with disastrous results, so have decided to just create it as a scene card. As you will be sick of me going on about it is Teen Self Esteem Awareness week and so I paired it with the Here's to you sentiment as we are all the star in our show

There is a video on my YouTube Channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by masking and stamping my badger so that he was wearing his hat and his 'stick' I pencilled in my background and coloured it using the following blends

Background LY1, YG1

Trees RB4, EB4, EB7, EB8

Grass LG5, LG3, LG1, DG4, AG5

Tent EB8, CR11, DR5, DR4 / IG8, IG5, IG3, IG2 / IG3, IG2, IG1

Inside BGR5

Hat IG10, IG8, IG6, CR8, CR5, CR4

Stick GY5, GY2, GB9, GB5

Mr Badger IG8, IG6, IG4, IG4, IG2, IG1

The image was trimmed using the Tim Holtz Deckle, the sentiment heat embossed and adhered onto an A6 Card Base
