Dos tarjetas interactivas con reptiles.

¡Bieeen, es hora de celebrar el lanzamiento de mayo de MFT! Yo he creado dos tarjetas interactivas con reptiles para la ocasión.

One of two interactive card with critters. This one has a color changing chameleon.

La primera es protagonizada por el simpático camaleón del set My Smile Is Bigger Because of You y el adorable perrito del set We’re the Picture of Best Friends.

Second of two interactive cards featring critters. This one has a crocodile who opens and closes its mouth.

La segunda tarjeta también tiene animalitos del mismo set que el camaleón. Dato curiosos: al conjunto de amfíbios y reptiles  se les llama herpetofauna. Todas estas criaturas tienen sangre fría. Antes de entrar en detalles, vamos a ver las tarjetas en acción, en el vídeo clip de abajo:

No estoy utilizando mecanismos nuevos… AQUÍ tienes el enlace al genial tutorial de Maaike de su tarjeta camaleónica y AQUÍ encontrarás mi tutorial de una tarjeta con lengüeta y movimiento giratorio… De todos modos, pronto me toca crear un tutorial para el canal de YouTube de MFT, así que si te apetece que haga uno de estos, deja un comentario y me lo pensaré.

One of two interactive cards with green critters made by Laura Dovalo.

The first card is quite easy to make. I cut a 4 3/4″ square panel with my paper trimmer and used the chameleon die to die cut an offset window. Next I stamped the chameleon on a piece of acetate with black StazOn ink. I didn’t want the rainbow colors to show around the critter so I used a white paint marker on the back of the acetate to fill out that space. I also used it for the eye.

For the back of the tongue I chose a red permanent marker. It’s not perfect, but it does the job.

I used a 4″ circle from the A2 Stitched Circle STAX Die-namics to create the rotating circle. To make it sturdy and thick I layered three of them. I used the following Copic markers to create the rainbow effect: BV04, BV02, BV01, B18, B14, B12, BG05, BG02, BG01, G05, G03, G02, Y17, Y15, Y13, YR68, YR65, YR61, R39, R37, R35, RV09, RV06 and RV04.

As you can see, the crocodile in card number two is anything but menacing even though its teeth look scary! The turtle is totally safe with his bestie.

For the ink blending I used the Grassy Edges Stencil as well as the following Distress Oxide Inks: Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage. The clouds are from the You Make My Days Sunshiny Die-namics and for the mechanism I used the Twist & Turn Interactive Die-namics, which is so versatile!
