Hi friends,

Studio Katia is collaborating with Chibitronics for three days of fun and creative projects.

Chibitronics makes kits to allow you to add lights and power to your paper crafting projects! Be sure to check out their blog today for more creative ideas and tutorials by their talented designers!

Originally I had another idea for a card, which to be honest I didn’t really like. So one day I was sitting in a train commuting back home and brain storming this project. When But then I was commuting home when I looked up and on a train station saw Blue Man Group ad. Which I saw million times before of course but then timing was perfect. I instantly got an idea to create a card featuring BMG paint drums.

For blue men I took adorable lions from Birthday Lions Stamp Set, which I stamped onto a white  stitched panel (made using a die from Dotted Patterns Set 1) and colored with COPICs. And then covered the lions with masking liquid to create the background, which I did by ink blending distress inks.

For paint splatters I used embossing powder. I was spraying some water using Distress Sprayer and poured a powder right away, which was sticking to water droplets. I was removing powder from areas I didn’t want to have it and then heat embossing it.

Then I cut a black panel, using the same stitched rectangle die (to make the panel smaller I die-cut it twice). I heat embossed splatters using the same embossing powders and a stamp from Brush Stroke Stamp Set. And the sentiment was embossed in white.
As far as lighting goes – I added three LEDs below each lion and they’re lit by pressing the sentiment down. Highlighting paint splatters.

It was very hard to take photos of, since LEDs don’t give much light. But can get an idea. Taking night photos of cards is tough ;)

    WOW, I think this card is the COOLEST card I have seen. I saw the headline “blue man Group” I had to click on the post right away. You nailed this girl, this is so adorable, cute and I think The Blue Man Group would be amazed and thrilled if they saw it. I know I was amazed by it.
