Mario Card

Mario Card

Originally uploaded by bonitocrafts.

This is probably the best thing I have done in a long while. I used to make this type of card quite often but haven’t made any for a long while.

I started with the picture I wanted to recreate and made a tracing. It was then a case of retracing the elements onto different coloured cards, working them with a burnisher to give them more shape and form, then building up the image in layers using foam pads.

The hands were a bit of a pain, but worth the effort in the end. The whole thing took about 5 hours in all to make.
