Remember her fatastic retro black and white ‘snapshot’ on Tuesday? Well, this one is in full, awesome color. Take a look.
Oh, and don’t forget, there is still time to enter our giveaway hosted by Rosali and The Foiled Fox. Just leave a comment on this post on both our Instagram pages – @ilovestamping and @foiledfox. We will announce our winners next week – YAY! (scroll down for more info)
I am back with the second card for @foiledfox using @mftstamps’ “Picture Perfect” and it features a more time-consuming design than the kraft cardstock one (did you see that one?!). I used my favorite #twostepcoloring method with a base layer of Copic Markers & Multiliner and a second layer with colored pencils, both using the “no-line coloring” technique (see close-up photos). I stamped the image with a light grey ink to achieve this look. For the background, I splattered watercolors in matching rainbow colors onto a piece of Bristol cardstock and I have to say – I love how it turned out! What do you think?
Above is step 1 – stamping the image in gray ink and coloring in the background and critters with Copic markers.
Now take a look below at the ‘snapshot’ with the dogs with all the coloring finished. You can see I varied the amount of colored pencil and copic markers I used for each cute canine to give each one it’s own special look.
With all the coloring done, I die cut some leaves using scraps of pastel card stock and the Fab Foliage die set by My Favorite Things. Next, I cut a panel from Bristol paper using a stitched rectangle die. I then splattered it with watercolor paints to match the colors of the leaves.
The stitched panel was then mounted onto a Neenah white card stock card base. These next few steps finished the design.
- mounted a few of the sprigs
- cut a ‘polaroid’ frame and stamped the sentiment with black ink.
- mounted the critter pic in the center of the polaroid frame and then added it to the top of the stitched panel
- the remaining sprigs were arranged and mounted.
- finally, a drop of glossy accents was added to the eyes and noses of the critters and let dry. This makes the eyes ‘pop’ and take on a more realistic look.
That’s all the steps. Now you have a snapshot of your favorite pooches!
