I coloured the alligator with Prismacolor pencils, applied Glossy Accents to his eyes, and fussy-cut so I could pop him up with foam tape. I decided to make a little scene for my gator! I started with the background, which I inked with Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I spritzed with water to add some texture.
After Googling alligator images, I decided on a monochromatic colour scheme for my scene. I used lots of die-cuts: Poppystamps Thicket Frame (cut in two shades of green and layered), Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders, Impression Obsession Grass, Impression Obsession Cattails, and Cheery Lynn Tiny Things with Wings. The cattails and dragonflies were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.
This set comes with some cool sentiments but I needed one for a birthday card so I used a sentiment from Newton's Nook Shark Bites, which I heat-embossed in white on a green scrap. I finished off the card by adding tiny brown sequins to the dragonflies and a few green flower sequins on the frame. Here's a look at this fun new set and everything you get with it - I think it is so fun!
