How fun are cards made with the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Dies? These dies and the coordinating Reveal Wheel Sentiments stamp set are brilliant! They make it so easy to make these interactive cards. And there are so many add-ons. Here I used the Speech Bubble Add-On. There are several window and stamp options, including a new Christmas sentiment stamp set.
I paired them with the Lawn Fawn Critter Concert Stamp Set and used all five critters to decorate the front panel of my card. I used Copic markers to color them and Distress Inks to ink-blend the background onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock, adding some detail with the Hero Arts’ Waves Stencil.
I did very simple coloring, using no more than three colors for the main areas of the critters’ bodies, using the darker shades to add shadows in the lighter areas: E33, E 37, E39 for the owl, C3, C5, C7 for the raccoon, and E11, E15, E19 for the bear, E07, E15 for the fox, and Y32 for the chick. I used Y28 for the brass instruments, and Y38 for the beaks. I may have used a couple other shades of brown from the E family for the wood instruments but I mostly used what I had already used on the critters. I just realized looking at the owl that I colored the owl’s back wing as if it were part of the violin (yikes!).
To add a little more interest to the background, I stamped some of the musical notes in the critter stamp set with Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink. I thought I might have to emboss them but they turned out very visible so I left them alone.
I hope you enjoy the video and feel inspired to make a few cards of your own. You can check out my first Reveal Wheel card on Instagram (#mariascardsandmore). To watch the video at YouTube click HERE.
