Colorful greeting, crafters! I have recently started to focus more on my coloring skills, since coloring is something I enjoy very, very much. Online stores like Etsy offer a huge variety of digital images that just wait to be discovered by me and one of my favorite stores is PPinkydolls (it’s not a typo, there are really two p’s). I absolutely love the images: they are not too cute, and have a lot of character.
- “Purchase any of our Technique Classes (Skin and Hair, Clothing, or Animals), or our Perfecting Pencils class and receive a project class of your choice FREE!”
- “All previous Create and Learn classes available for sale this weekend only!
Grab the ones you’ve missed out on! This is a great way to trial our most popular class!”
Those are fantastic deals and I hope you can treat yourself. You can purchase and download the class content now, and then use the holidays at the end of the year to start with the classes – that’s how I got hooked last year 🙂
I was once more inspired by Debra James who excels at making an image the focal point of a card. Digital images allow you to print them as small or as large as you want (well, you might not be able to print them billboard size, but most will easily allow you to cover a card front completely or go even bigger). The coloring was originally meant as a practice of what I had learned in my Kit and Clowder classes (“Clothes”, and “Hair and Skin”).
I am pretty happy about the clothes, even though I might have overdone the folds on the hat. The hair of the Ppinkydolls images is always a challenge, but if I don’t challenge myself, I can’t grow, right?
I outlined the image with a light blue, and then traced with a white gel pen around it. I like the effect – it’s very subtle, but somehow interested. I created my own glitter paper, added a stamped sentiment from Wplus9, and matted the panel on my card front. Done!
Thanks for stopping by today! I’m sending this card – very last minute – off to the following challenges: Addicted to Stamps and More “Make Your Mark”; Simon Says Stamp “Anything Goes”; Addicted To CAS “Dimension”.
