I made another card for the Winterfest celebrations over at Two Peas in a Bucket. One of the challenges is "Colour Me This". You stamp an image two times and colour them in two different ways.
I coloured my first image with copics and did not care for how it turned out. I do not have enough pale and medium brown shades. Those that I do have, seem to need refilling. I just couldn't get the shading right...
I coloured my second image with Stampin' Up Chalks. I used an eye makeup sponge for the large areas and a fiber stick for the detailed areas. I wet the chalk for the bow and edges of the feet and paws. I really like the finished look of it...so soft and pretty.
Before I bought my copics, I used to use chalk and sometimes even pencil crayons with gamsol blending. I think I may try these methods again, as I had fogotten how subtle the colours look.
I used all VOS (very old stash) to create this card. The design papers are at least 8 years old as I used them for Little Miss C's newborn album. I am pretty sure that I already had them in my stash at that time as well! I made four 6x6 books for my daughter to give all the Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers and I had a lot of supplies left over. Everything I used here was still in the 12x12 plastic storage envelope that I stored her baby album supplies in. Although they were all originally 12x12 papers, they seemed to cut down OK as the pattern was fairly small. I also found a plastic drawer full of matching baby and little girl embellishments that I had forgotten all about. They were in a tall narrow cupboard that usually is blocked by the chair my neighbour uses when she comes to papercraft with me. It makes me tend not to go into that cupboard and it also did not help that the drawer was labelled Wedding!!! lol Obviously some organizing that went astray!!!
Here is a little close up that hopefully shows the texture and pretty shimmer of the snippets of pink card.
To fit the requirements of the challenge, here is a shot of the finished card and the second image I coloured with copics.
I used another of the self adhesive Carolee's creations Scrap A Card pieces for the sentiment.
I decided this card could also fit into the "Embellish This" challenge. My Embellishments are
1. Pink organza ribbon for the bow
2. Pink flower
3. Yellow heart Buttons
4. Green twine tied in the buttons
5. Green brads with a pink filigree metal disk that I slid under the brad...not sure if this counts as one of two embellishments...
