Today I have a really bright card to share with you. I'm entering it into two challenges. I'm using this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches & this prompt Song Inspiration from Saturated Canary.
As you can see this is a very colourful card, which is where the song comes in - True Colours by Cyndi Lauper. I think the song suits this card, which is one of the reasons I gave BL pink hair. She looks like she could be dancing with that pose.
I used Copics & Distress inks. I was inspired by a few people. Anne showed a technique with Distress Stains (I so want some!) that I adapted (sort of). Brenda for encouraging me to do an ATC which I did in Distress inks which led to this card. I started out with the background. I cut up some watercolour paper to 4.25 x 5.5 " & then randomly applied Distress inks. Once I was happy with that I dripped water onto it. After that had dried I inked the edges & stamped one of my favourite b/g stamps onto it. I had previously printed & die cut out Boobie love. I had used Labels Two to cut her out.
Unfortunately fortunately I had cut her out with a large white area on one side I then decided that it needed to go. So I grabbed the die (exact same one), placed it further over to the image & re-cut it. Which gave me a cool new shape (another "light bulb" moment), I'm so going to be doing that again! I then inked up some of the off cuts & basically applied different inks & misted with water until I was happy with them. It was a simple case of following the sketch to put it all together. I know my card isn't an exact replica of the sketch but it still has all the elements that are on the sketch so I hope that's ok.
