Techie Table

Here is a card I made for the release party last week, using Melanie's new set, Tech Talk and Nina's new Lovely Shelf. I didn't get many photos for this one.

If you want that cute little heart on the computer to stand out, try stamping it in a different color than the rest. I taped off the heart before inking up and then after inking with black, I used a red Memento marker to ink the heart.

Here are the colors I used on the computer. N7 and N5 on the main part and C3, C1 & blender pen on the screen. After cutting out the computer, I scored it at the fold and gave it a little bend.

I wanted to have all my images to sit on a table, so I just cut a little trapezoid shape and sponged with Creamy Caramel and Chocolate Chip.

These are the colors I used on the mug. Y21, Y23, YR12 and E33.

On the lamp shade, I used Y21, Y23, YR12 and E35. On the lamp I used E52, E57 and E59 along with my blender pen.

When I assembled the card, I wanted a lot of dimension. I used Pop Dots placed under the front of the table only, used Pop Dots under the lamp shade, under the computer screen and under the top of the mug. Using the Pop Dots under the tops of the images and adhering the bottoms down without them, adds to the perspective that the computer was drawn with.

Thanks for the visit. Hope you have a very happy Monday!
