Today I used this adorable image from Pure Innocence called "Warm Winter." These images are precious and I could not wait to color her!
See the shaped card base? I created that using Die-namics Blueprints 9. Blueprints die sets are incredibly clever. Its an entire set of dies that can create cards based on digital sketches that you receive with the dies. How cool is that? Instant card. But also a lot of dies to be creative with! This large tag will be getting a lot of use!
I also used the cute scalloped border (trimmed from a larger image) and the stitched-edge rectangle from Die-namics Blueprints 9. Perfect card sized elements. Brilliant!
And now for the coloring. Normally I would grab my Copic markers and go to town. But today, after I grabbed my patterned paper (Fancy Pants Happy Go Lucky) and looked down at my inks, I decided to watercolor. Its easy to do. Simply press your ink pads into a craft mat. Spritz with water and apply the color with a paint brush. Add more water for softer color. And be sure and use watercolor paper for this technique.
Tip: To create the peach color for her face, I mixed MFT Orange Fizz and Wild Cherry with a lot of water.
Here she is, all colored. Man, I love these images!
