Today's card is a special one, I have never made anything like this and it was SO much fun!! This is a summer card, with sea theme! I have coloured up Tilda with sea shells with Copics and used no line colouring technique with Copics for the first time!!! It took several tries and lots of time to do this, so I am very much still learning! :D With all the new techniques I have learnt in the Skin and hair class and Clothing class over at kitandclowder.ning.com, I am very proud of this image.
Here's the card!
I have recently become aware of digital design paper so I bought special ones for this project, you can find them here and here! Don't you just love them!? :D I do, and they fit perfect for my card. I can also tell you that I am a HUGE fan of glitter. The more the better, because glitter makes everything sparkle, and I totally love sparkely things :) To make all the die-cuts sparkle, I have used Sticky Embossing powder that works like a glue when you heat it, then I poured Stickles Dry Fine Glitter Diamond over and heated it again. I am so happy that the photos really show how much the die-cuts shimmer :)
Here's a close-up at Tilda with sea shells. She is coloured with Copics and here are all the combinations I used in this order:
Skin: E000, E04, E11, E21, E00, R20 (Eyes BG09)
Hair: E18, E15, YR23, Y22, Y11
Knot and band: BG09, BG05, BG01, BG000
Dress and flipflops: E15, Y17, Y15, Y11, Y000
Basket: BG78, BG75, BG72, BG70
Sea shells: E15, E31, E50
Sand: E35, E33, E31, E43, E53, E21, E00, Y11, Y000
I have also used Frantage Enamel around the image and I used both Blue and Shabby white. All the white dots on Tilda are made with an acrylic pen called Posca :)
Here are all the dies I have used for this project:
GoKreate Large Frame Frilly #2 for the card shape.
Joy Crafts! Under the sea Waves
Joy Crafts! Under the sea Seahorse
Joy Crafts! Under the sea Starfish
Magnolia Doohickey Dies
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Fourteen for the frame with sentiment
The sentiment is from Magnolia stamps. I have stamped it with Distress Ink Broken China (fit soooo good together with the rest of the card's colours!).
I had SO much fun making this card and have learnt so much on the way :) Hope you try the no line colouring technique and also glittering your die-cuts!! :D
