I colored the image last night using these Copics:
I know it shows up kind of sketchy with the coloring, but that is coming from the lighting and flash it is not really that way in person. I played around with the flick technique. I had not heard of it before until yesterday when Katie from Paper Make - Up talked about it. You flick the tip of one Marker across the tip of the other marker to get a color you do not have it worked great to get the darker brown I wanted for the moose. The Darkest Brown I have in Copics is Sepia and it is O.K. but I needed it darker for some of my shading so the flick technique really did what I wanted to achieve!!!
I was trying to decide which of my colors I wanted to play around with and I was going through the cards I had made lately to decide which of my new copics I had not used yet. I realized I have not really done anything with the Orange shades so that is how this Bright Card was born!!!
For CS colors I used SU Whisper White, Yo Yo Yellow bottom right piece, Summer Sun, top left piece, Tangerine Tango the orange die cut with the Scallop Circle Nestie, Pumpkin Pie the orange piece cut and embossed with the CB folder and corner rounded with the decorative corner rounder under the scallop Circles. The Card Base is Only Orange. So I used 3 different Oranges and 2 different Yellow's, and Whisper White.
The Ribbon is from HL it is a sheer orange Organza Ribbon I really like a lot it is so shimmery and pretty! I just realized I left of the two circle pieces in the lower right had corner of the sketch, but oh well to late now at least for the pictures they are already all edited, cropped, and on this post!!! Darn wish I had not forgotten to add that on the sketch!!!
Here is the 2nd half of the Hand written Sentiment. I was stumped for a Sentiment and I called my neighbor/good friend/SU Down line/fellow Dazzling Diamonds Designs member, Tasha and asked her what Sentiment would be good for a Too Much Laundry Card???? She came up with some idea's and then I made it what I thought went with the card. She came up with the Job Security part as we are both Stamp at Home Mom's!!!! LOL I just saw that expression for the first time yesterday! It fits since we are both SU Demo's and Stay at Home Mom's for the most part!!! (I did get up to the Hospital on New Years Eve and finish up those in service hours I needed to, to stay on the Call In list and I signed up for call through February 25th so we will see from there what I end up doing. I have not been called in, in over 12 weeks not sure I would remember how to do my job if and when I do get called in again!!!! LOL.
Here is another closer view of Riley that also shows you more of the Sketch. I Cuttle Bug Embossed with the Swiss Dots, Circles and Blooms, and Circles CB embossing folders and my Big Shot. I corner rounded the two Yellow shades of CS pieces with the SU ticket punch, and I did the Pumpkin Pie piece with my favorite elegant Corner Rounder. The Orange Scallop Circle and the Orange cuttled piece are popped out using excess rubber the two yellow pieces are glued down, and the white Scallop Circle is glued down. I used two glue dots holding the Ribbon in place where I want the ends. I had wrote the whole Sentiment.
Above is one last Side view kind of shows you how it is popped out. I hope you enjoy the card I had fun making it that is for sure, I loved all the bright Colors!!!
Have you ever noticed that I use almost any colors and I do not really have a personal style?? I like to try new things and change things up a lot instead of sticking to one shade of colors and one style I like simple and elegant, to fresh and fun, to unique and funky styles I will try anything that looks like a learning or fun experience!!!
Well let me know what you think I will post my Willow in the Rain Card tomorrow. I can not wait to share my Flutter By Cards I worked so hard on later this week!!!!
Have a Stampendous Day and I hope you can stamp this weekend!!!!!
