Sneak Peek Week at Ethereal Forest Designs

Good Morning! Happy Monday. I hope you're week is off to a great start.

I have a very exciting announcement. I have been asked to join the design team for a new company called Ethereal Forest Designs. Our lovely team leader Darsie kicked off the sneak peek week yesterday with her gorgeous card featuring Marble the Unicorn. I am thrilled to be a part of this team and am very excited to show you my card.


This is Elymira and she's so cute, she'd cheer anyone up. I created an easel card, portrait orientation. Most easel cards are in landscape orientation, so it took a little figuring on how to make it the other direction. I am very pleased with how it turned out.

I printed Elymira on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White card stock and colored her using my Copics. I pulled out some old SU! patterned paper (can't remember what it was called) and then kept my colors to the same as the paper. I topped the card with chocolate brown ribbon, but it looks black in the photo. I need more lighting when I take my photos or better photo editing software. I really wanted to repeat the flower that she's holding, so in my photo-editing software, I cropped out the flower and did a little clean up and then imported the image into my word document and resized to different sizes. Then added the sentiment and printed. I had to do a little more touch up with a pen, but the results are pretty good. What I did was more like when you color on a rubber stamp with a marker to only ink up parts you want and omit other parts - just digitally.



I printed a larger flower and cut Elymira out to create the stopper for the easel card.

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek and that you visit Ethereal Forest Designs every day this week to see what the other girls have in store for you. You are going to love it! All digis will be available on March 1st.

Thanks for stopping by.
