Today is a special day. It's the Heffy Friends Blog Hop. I'm excited to be sharing a legendary slimline card with you today. There is also a chance to win a gift of 50 pounds to spend in the Heffy Doodle online store. I'm using the Highland Honeys stamp set and coordinating dies as well as some older sets to create this panoramic scene. Keep scrolling to read more about it.

I started with a two pieces of heavy weight white cardstock cut to 3 x 8 inches. I took the first panel and started ink blending Distress Oxide ink in Black Soot at the top to represent space. Stars will be added later with a paint pen. I blended the black into Salty ocean and then into Seedless Preserves. Attempting to make it appear as though you have entered the atmosphere. Lastly I blended on some Wild Honey to represent the light from the sun. That panel was then complete.
The second of the two 3 x 8 inch panels was then cut down using the coordinating wave die in the Highland Honeys die set. Knowing that I wanted to incorporate the Nessy image from the Highland Honeys stamp set into the panel, I stamped the image where he will eventually live, but for now I only need to mask that area. I masked the image areas so as to not ink blend any of the ink over that area. I then used the Rays the Roof Stencil to add a little bit of light into the water I was about to create. I used Chipped sapphire towards the bottom of the panel and blending up into Salty ocean. After I had a good amount of ink blended onto the panel using the stencil, I then removed the stencil and ink blended more to eliminate the masked whiteness left behind from the stencil.
I then cut a third piece from the left over chunk I had just cut off using the wave die, this time I used one of my drifts and hills dies to create a sea bottom. I blended on Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen to add some sand. I added a little splatter of the Brushed Corduroy for texture.
My Images were stamped with black alcohol friendly ink onto Heffy Doodle alcohol marker friendly paper. I have created a kolour Map listing all of the markers used on this project. I can say my son is very disappointed that I colored the pteranodon black. He is certain that they were orange. I think he has been watching too much Dinosaur Train. I used an array of images from various Heffy Doodle stamp sets. Dino time, Oceans of Love, and Spaced Out along with their coordinating dies.
The "hope your day is legendary" sentiment is from the same Highland Honeys stamp set. I stamped it using watermark ink onto Heffy Doodle Oreo card stock and heat embossed it using detail white embossing powder. I easily trimmed it down into a box using my paper trimmer.
I added the sky blended panel flat to an Heffy Doodle Oyster slimline card base cut to 8 1/2 by 7 and scored at 3 1/2 with tape runner adhesive. I then popped up the mountains using adhesive foam squares. I use foam squares with various thicknesses to give me more ability to pop things up onto my cards. I have three and a half levels of adhesive on this card. It has tons of dimension, but I am not afraid of it. I love it, and I will never stop popping up all the things.
I hope that I've inspired you to create something today. Make sure you check out the rest of the hope and comment for your chance to win 50 pounds in the Heffy Doodle Online Store.
