I had already used this image once before for him, but I had seen a really great tutorial on the Spectrum Noir website by Laine Webb for making your own 3D decoupage, and knew this little guy would look great 3D'd up! So I followed Laine's fab instructions and set about creating a 3D card.
Firstly I had to print him out 5 times as he was a digital image, then I cut out the layers as follows:
I then coloured each of those parts as follows:
Did you spot that I accidentally coloured the whole of his T-shirt?!
The colours I used were:
Hair - EB1, EB2, EB3, EB6,Bandana - TB3, TB4, Blender, Pencil 120...
Skin - FS8, FS3, FS5
Hat - BGR1, BGR2
Top - TB3, TB5,TB6, TB7Pencil 120
Trousers - TB4, TB8, TB9
Shoes - BGR1, BGR2, TB2, TB3
To make the background I sponged my Pebeo Dyna acrylic paints onto a piece of black card
When it was dry I used a white gel pen to draw a double line around the edge and to write Happy Birthday Harry, only then did I run it through the stonewall embossing folder from Crafters Companion
I wanted the writing to look like graffiti
I finished the card by layering up all the decoupage elements, making sure I shaped all the pieces to give good dimension and used Collall 3D gel to add more height.
My Son Loved his card as much as I did, and was glad to have had the inspiration from Laine to do something a little different.
