Hello my lovelies how are you all? Yayyyy its the weekend I soooooooo love weekends I get to spend lots of time with all my family...........what more could I ask for :0)
Todays card is for the Copic Marker Europe blog. Now most of you know my 2 most favourite things to colour are faces/skin & hair I could sit & colour these all day long, these never stress me out, never worry me & I find them so relaxing to do. Everyone has a favourite thing they like to colour, these are mine.
As you know I had a huge love of Sweet Pea stamps as well as Hannnah Lynn but I havnt done a Sweet Pea stamp for sooooooooooo long, well they have now gone digital woooooo hooooooo I lurve digi images the most. So I went over, (yes its took me a while to find out they have gone digital lol) & brought a few images.
My 2 fave artists over there are Ching-Choux Kuik & Karen Middleton, I love her faces thats she draws. This one is by Karen Middleton & is called 'Tara', isnt she so beautiful!!
I have used 2 of the new dies from MB, LOVE these ones the most I think ;0) I've used 'Fresh Foliage' & cut it out with white card & dabbed Gesso all over it to give it texture. I also cut out 2 of
'Forget Me Not Stem' in a sage green card.
I decorated inside to compliment the front, I also kept all the flowers neutral so the image would be the main focus. I added a 'Metal Corner' which I painted with white Gesso.
I have added beautiful white & sage green lace from my stash, the green is showing its true colour though for some reason. I also stamped the sentiment in Ivy green.
This pretty lady was of course coloured with Copics, colours used are........
Face - E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000, Cheeks R20 & Lips R85
Hair - C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, C0
Leaves YG97, YG93, YG91 & Blender pen to lighten bits of them.
I also added White Liquid Pearls to the berries.
The background around her was done with G000 & the Blender pen.
I matted her onto a Spellbinders die which was cut out of grey card & then dabbed with White Gesso.
Papers used are Pion Studio Of Memories 'Collage & Ring Of Roses' & I inked all the edges with Weathered Wood DI. Papers are light to let the image again be the main focus.
