Good morning, and welcome to UDI’s MDS Monday Challenge #24 – Punch Art Animal. My friend, Jeanne, had a beautiful baby girl on July 7th. And I’m using baby Kate’s first picture for this week’s page. I created my basic layout with colors and patterns from the Subtles color family. Once I was happy with the look, I added another page so I could create my punch art Teddy Bear in a larger size.
I started with Chocolate Chip Circle punches for the head and body. Then I added Chocolate Chip Wide Oval punches for the arms and feet. Once the basic shape was created, I added more details with smaller Pretty In Pink Circle punches and the Oval punch. I completed the Teddy Bear with Whisper White, Basic Black, and Rose Red Circles. Just like traditional punch art, you need to add shadows (for layering) in all the right spots to get that 3-D look. Oh, for a girlie Teddy Bear, I added a So Saffron Grosgrain Bow.
Finally, I used the “Select All” function to select everything on the page and used the “Group” function to turn my Teddy Bear into a single element. I copied the Teddy Bear, pasted it on my original page, and resized the Teddy Bear to the correct proportion for my photo. I’m very pleased with how the page turned out. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Now it’s time to check out the other inspiring creations from the Design Team members at Utah Diva’s International.
