Twinkly Wishes

The girls have been asking for a Chibi light tutorial for one of our crafty days so worked this one up for them.  And for me--all that cuteness!  The heart on the door of the house lights up. Ack!

I started by lightly sponging Salty Ocean blue in the upper corner to represent sky between leaves then used Twisted Citron to blend and create a vibrant summer green background. Next came the grass sponging with the TC and Lucky Clover; the leaves were done using the same colors but by dabbing to create a different look. The cover plate was cut using glitter paper (twinkly!).

Time to prep for the Chibi light aperture by cutting out the heart of the door on the mushroom house and cutting a slightly larger aperture on the base layer behind it. This allows the light to be brighter as it shines through the heart opening (which has a layer of vellum I colored in yellow). Now comes the fun part for me where I add the leaves then color up the various bits. Little secret: the balloon covers up where I had originally stamped "push here." I decided more subtlety was in order.

The Details:  The Greeting Farm Fairy Fairy Happy, Craftin Desert Divas Gnomie, Party Dies and Outdoor Landscape 2 Dies, Lawn Fawn Portrait Leafy Tree Backdrop and Push Here, Recollections Glitter Cardstock, Distress Oxide Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean and Lucky Clover, Copics, Ranger Multi Medium Matte, 1/8" Scor-Tape, Memento Tuxedo Black and London Fog, VersaFine Onyx Black
