Happy Saturday everyone! Color Me Creative has a new challenge that is all about lurve! I created a card with this little cutie from our sponsors, The Stamp Fairy. How adorable is he?!!!
As I typed this post I realised that the colours are also the colours of Love; red, cream and pink and oh yes, Ruby COMPLETELY messed up and did green and brown!!! Read the instructions woman lol. The version below is the one that I made initially, the red and pink version above is my reworked one!
I used this sketch from I Spy Sketches. I adapted it somewhat but it was my main inspiration for my card above.
I Spy Sketches is a new challenge blog so this is their very first challenge. I was inspired by one of their DT member’s cards by Danielle Daws’ using the holey ribbon! (not sure what it’s officially called!)
I coloured him in the usual way using my Copics, colours shown below and then using a fluffy tea-towel spritzed with colourless blender I dabbed away some of the colour to give him some texture. I’ve wanted to play around with this technique for a while, and it works so well on teddies. I know Suzanne also has a free video showing you how to colour fur but I keep avoiding that, this is my safer option lol. I will have to do that one soon.
I also added in some random shadowing around the edges using T1 & T3. I was going to go all the way around but kinda liked it all spaced out.
Here’s the colours I used..
I’m entering my card(s) into the following challenges;
CardMadFairy’s Digi Day Challenge – ‘Use Hearts’
Delicious Doodles – ‘All Loved Up’
I’m having a lot of technical issues this end for some reason so because of that I would love it if you would refer to our main Color Me Creative blog for full details of the challenge and I would also encourage you to visit each of the DT girls’ blogs because they have cooked up some beauties with this challenge!
Ciao for now!
