The weekend is here again, Yay! And it is a 3 day weekend. I am off to a good crafty start. Today I have a card to share with you using one of my favorite Thomas Kinkaid images.
Usually when I use these images, since there is so much detail, I tend to do them in black and white with no colouring. However, for this one, I did colour using Copics, and I'm really happy with the results.
The technique I used was to stamp the image using Versafine on to Velum. Then I let it dry for a while, then coloured the reverse side (the back of the sheet) with Copics--that way there was no smearing. Putting a white piece of paper underneath the paper when I was colouring made the stamped image pop up and easy to colour.
This may seem intimidating, however it was axtually not too long to colour, as the image is naturally shaded, so for example on the grassy area, I only used one green marker, and the different colours and "light" that shows through is due to the stamped image being shaded in some areas.
To finish it off, I stuck in in a frame, added some pearls, popped it up with dimensionals and mounted on the base.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
