I’ll go into detail on the second card. Many of these colors are similar to the first.
While it was still masked, I sprayed Art Anthology Colorations:
To make the background more ‘watercolor-y’, I put small puddles of water in a few places and let it drip and dry. Most notable in the lower right of the image…
I colored the face with Copic Markers:
- E11, E13, E23, E25, E27 for the face and eyes.
- BG72, YR23 and Bv04 for the shadows
- R81, R83, R85, R39 for the lips
The hair is lots of fun to create. I used Art Anthology Velvet paints in Kona and Truffle, mixing the colors to get just the right shade. I applied them and let them dry for just 30 seconds – and then swirled around in the paint with the handle end of a paint brush to get that texture. The paint is dimensional and dries amazingly fast for a textured application.
I stamped the sentiment and the frame in Stazon Midi Gothic Purple. Then I stamped again in Versamark, just so very slightly offset, to create a shadow image underneath; and heat embossed these with Ranger’s Queen’s Gold embossing powder.
A bit of bling was added to the frame in her hair (that’s what I designed that frame for in Frame Set 1!), and along the right side of the card.
I honestly can’t decide which card I like more. I like both for different reasons. So which one is your favorite?
