Someone asked me to make a birthday card and she really liked the Chewbacca card I made a while ago. I used the Yeti, Set, Go stamp set from Lawn Fawn, where I turned the Yeti into Chewbacca from Star Wars.
I started by stamping the yeti, but didn’t want the belly. I added the belt onto the image with a Sakura pen. I colored Chewbacca with Copic Markers. I also stamped a balloon for him to hold and some pine trees for the background. Here are the colors I used:
Chewbacca: E15 – E25 – E29
Face + paws: E00 – E11
Belt: W2 – W5 – W7
Balloon: G14 – G07 – G17
Trees: G21 – BG93 – BG96
I die cut Chewbacca and the trees with my Cuttlebug and I fussy cut the balloon. Then I went over to my background. I took some watercolor paper and stamped a little star onto it with Versamark Ink. I then heat embossed the stars with Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from Wow. I used Distress Inks and a mini ink blending tool to color the background. I started with the color Salty Ocean. Around the edges I came in with Seedless Preserves and a little bit of Chipped Sapphire.
I die cut three hills with the Stitched Hillside Borders from Lawn Fawn. All three hills were colord with a different Distress Ink color. For the one in the back I used Pine Needles, the middle one I did with Mowed Lawn and the hill in the front I colored with Old Paper Distress Ink.
I adhered all the images. Chewbacca, the balloon and the middle hill were all adhered with foam tape. The rest flat. I stamped the sentiment onto the hills. I curved the sentiment, so it goes along with the hill. I added the panel to a kraft cardbase and rounded of the top right corner. As a finishing touch I added some Glossy Accents to the balloon.
