Toucan Card (CASology Week #358)

Hi everyone! :o)

This Tuesday, December 17th, 2019, a new challenge started at CASology. This fortnight's cue word is Branch. :o)

I didn't have time to write blog post on time, but there's still time to join the challenge, which ends on Monday, January 6th, 2020, 9 AM, CST (UTC -6)

We also have a sponsor for this challenge: STAMPlorations. Find all details about the prize over at CASology blog.

And here is my take on the challenge: CAS (clean and simple), one layer, Toucan Card. :o)

Design defined: 
One layer card is great in CAS design.

How I made my card....

To make this card I used super cute toucan from Craftin Desert Divas 'Flew By' 2 x 3 stamp set. Sadly, the shop is closed and the set is not available anymore.

I made this card during Kathy's Racoosin 13th 30 day coloring challenge (in July 2019), but I didn't shared a card anywhere yet, just a sneak peek in a preview post of all my coloring during the challenge (here). At that time I received an invitation to join the CASology Design Team and I worked in advance for our's current challenge theme. :o)

I stamped the toucan and a sentiment directly on a top folded Kraft paper card base.

I colored the toucan with various colored pencils. To add some extra shade, I used Stabilo Fiber Tip Pens (Markers).

When I was satisfied with the color, I colored a shade around the toucan with a grey colored pencil. Lastly, I colored a toucan's eye with a white pigment ink pen and my card was finished. :o)

  1. Wow! Such fun and stunning one layer card! Nobody could say that the toucan isn't popped up, your shading looks wonderful, as it seemed to me that you glued the image on the shadow! Very well done!
    I wish you and family a wonderful Christmas time and a super duper Happy New Year!
    Big hugs
