Welcome back.... I am so glad to see you popping in periodically. I would love to know you are here...Just leave a simple hello....
Today, I want to show you some of the fun that I have been having. If you have been around my blog for long, you know that I love my Unity stamps. They are awesome images which stamp so beautifully. These past few weeks, I have been using them as my starting point. I've been practicing using my distress markers and I think that I almost have it down. The stamp I chose to use is one of the Angiegirl stamps. She is called "Beach Girl".
I stamped her on water color paper and then went to work. I found that it was easier for me to blend the colors if I scribbled some of the ink onto a acrylic block and then used the Tim Holtz water brush to pick it up and color. I colored her in 4 different colors. (oops...I failed to take a photo of the yellow one.)
What do you think? Did I do ok with the skin tones? What do you think of the background colors? I wanted it to look like a sunrise or sunset and waves crashing into shore. I think I failed there. Ohhh well... I still like how they came out.
Now that I have colored these images, what do I do with them? I make cards! Yeah!.... My mother in law gets the green girl...as it is her favorite...
Her she is. I think it turned out awesome. The saying is a Tim Holtz stamp.
Here she is in Yellow. I like her, too. You can't tell in the picture, but I used some stickles on the yellow . It is simply beautiful.
Here she is in purple. For the life of me, I can not recall where the sentiment stamp is from.
This is the pink girl. She is my favorite. I really like how the skin tones turned out and the shading in the pinks.
Do you have a favorite? I would love to hear which one. Do you have some suggestions of what I can do differently?
Thanks for stopping by. Come back in a few days and I will have some additional cards up.
