Happy weekend! I'm up on The Rabbit Hole's blog today with this caffeine lovin' hottie! I LOVE Rhino's and this one is just too cute for words! Meet Caffeinated Rhino, I paired him up with a few Distress Oxide Inks, my Cotton Tail Blending Brushes and some clear embossing goodness!
First off I created a mask of my Caffeinated Rhino. I placed my mask where I wanted my Rhino to be then got busy with my Oxide Inks and Cotton Tail Blending Brushes. I used 3 different colors of Oxides (Peeled Paint, Speckled Egg and Frayed Burlap) and blended around my panel, not really putting much effort in to blending the colors in to each other. Once I finished that layer of ink, I used my heat gun to get it good and dry!
Next I inked up the Caffeine formula image from the set with WOW Embossing Ink and topped it off with clear embossing powder. I stamped several in a random pattern over the panel. After heat embossing that clear, I went back to the Oxides and blended up another layer. This is where I paid attention to blending edges better, etc. Once I finished inking I wiped the excess ink off of the embossed images… look at those formula's POP!
Next up I removed the Rhino "mask" and then stamped the Rhino on the white space and colored him up with Copics. Once I was sure I had all of the colors in place, etc. I splashed some water over the card front for texture.
For the very last piece, my inked up panel is wonky shaped which gave me a great place for my sentiment. I popped up the inked panel then stamped my sentiment in a dark gray and added a little Blue Bird from the set. I just love all of the layers and textures on this!!!!
