We are over-the-moon excited to have TaeEun of Rainbow In November blog visiting today. She is a fabulous colorist! Just take a look at her color magic in this card. These alcohol ink colors just jump off the card!
Hi There! It’s TaeEun here! I’m so excited to be a guest at The Foiled Fox today!
The gorgeous image I used for today’s card is called Melody Makers. The large blossom and sweet birds were calling for alcohol inks when I saw them for the first time :)!
I applied the ink directly from the bottle onto the image and tilted the panel to move the ink. For small areas, I used a Micro brush. I once watched Jessica Frost-Ballas using it in one of her videos and started using it too. It is the perfect tool for this purpose!!!
The colors I used are:
• Flowers: Shell Pink, Snow Cap
• Leaves: Limeade
• Birds: Y06, Sunshine Yellow, Valencia, Red Pepper/ Pool, Y06
• Branch: Hazelnut
• Background: Aqua, Limeade
I colored the beaks and legs using brown fine tip Sharpie pen and the eyes using black and white glaze pens.
The sentiment is from Grateful Heart by Penny Black. I stamped it in StazOn black ink on the panel. I added some dots with gold and yellow Pico embellisher as stamen of the flowers. To finish off I scattered some clear iridescent sequins.
I’ve made a coloring process video. You can see the name of the used colors on the top left corner.
You can watch it in HD below or on my YouTube channel.
Hope you enjoyed looking my card and video!
Thank you so much!
See you soon again!
