This first card I did simply because I enjoyed colouring the last ones much.
Love the look of Prismacolour pencils on kraft cardstock and these flowers
look so pretty cascading down the card front.
A bit of masking involved and once the mask was removed I went back and drew in some lines with a black marker here or there to keep things a bit more fluid. After colouring I again went over the stamped images with a black line marker to define the black lines more.
I either added white or the very palest colour from the colour range each time to highlight the tips of the flowers. Finished off with a stamped sentiment from the same set. Felt the card didnt need anything.
This next card is a combination of a digital image of Mo's that I have coloured with
Copics in lovely Summer colours.
Check out the hair, I thought I would give her that coloured just on the ends look. Anyway
I managed to damage the piece I was colouring quite a bit with marks here and there so had to do quite a bit of trimming and ended up with a bit of engineering required.
Was able to use a scalloped stitched edge and though the top was too short a couple of palm leaves cut from watercoloured paper I had in the scrap pile saved the top of the card and a nice piece of patterned paper that changed colour from orange to yellow highlighted the side and found a sentiment that stamped out perfectly " Sand, Sea' You & Me' Who could ask for more!!!
Now this card was a bit of a play around with a couple of dies that had been purchased and not used and a challenge 'home'. Few of the Design Team had used Maps or map related and I had some pattern paper related to maps that I was going to give away but held onto cause you never know.
I have one of those 'light bulb' moments. I thought of the background did and thought it reminds me of the sea so die cuts page of map design and one of silver card stock then inlaid the map design into the silver after adding double sided tape to the base of the card.
Die cut the yacht and added with a bit of dimensional foam and stamped the sentiment 'wishing you the very best on your new home' for friends setting off after retirement on a rond the world trip in their new home (a yacht). Of course my son then pointed out it would have looked much better if I had cut the page in the right direction, so I had to point out that it depends on which way they are travelling at the time, he just shook his head at me like I'm an idiot or something.
