http://abcdtchallenge.blogspot.ca/2012/06/june-challenge-is-here.html - Colour Pallette
The top card is for a friend's birthday. I used the colour pallette of cream, light and dusty rose, lavender and sage green. I stamped the flower image in basic black ink. I coloured it with gamsol pencils. I stamped the image again and cut parts out for a 3D effect. I also used a little ribbon. the cuddlebug and background in 2 shades of pink. I hope this works with the abc challenge and Make It Monday. The 2nd card is for travel for the Stampman Challenge. It was for my husband who loves Picasso. The stamp was bought in Venice and he is travelling on his horse. I added the background image and coloured it with sparkly golden hued pens and added the mask since it just seemed to go with Venice. The last card, works for the Whimsy Inspire challenge to have a white card except for the image which I drew-I did not trace -from one of my favourites-Al Hirschfeld. This image is Theda Bara. The first screen Vamp. Poor Theda-she always wanted to be loved. I used the cuddlebug alot for the background and the scrolls. I added the bling and now Theda is alive again!

I wish I was artistic in some way besides blogging. Does blogging count as an art form?ReplyDelete
Love that first card you entered in the MIM Linky Party. The coloring is fabulous and it's a very pretty card.ReplyDelete

All of the cards are so different from each other and so cool. Love the Theda Bara card. It's so effective with that amazing background and then your drawing. Wow! Love the tiny hits of colour you added. Thanks for joining our Performing Arts challenge at Art With No Boundaries.ReplyDelete

All are great projects but my absolute fave is your drawing of Theda Bara. She always looked so funky cool and this one captures her beautifully. Thanks for sharing these on Art With No Boundaries.ReplyDelete
