Happy Saturday, my card today is for the color challenge at In Style Stamps!
Below is our color inspiration:
When I first saw the inspiration photo I thought, hmmmm, with the images I chose how can I make that work? That's why it's called a challenge! I had the images and the inspiration photo and time to let it roll around in my mind and the card above is the finished product of all that. I've been told I think too much...
On to my project. She's a digi stamp by In Style Stamps called Surfer Girl. I colored her with Copic markers:
Background: B91, B95
Sand: E30, E31, E33
Hair: YR23, YR31, Y18, Y000, YR14
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, R02
Surf board: R27, YR09, YR07, YR04, Y13, Y15, Y18
Sunglasses: C0, C3, C6
Bikini & waves: G20, G21, G24, G28
I started by coloring the surf board, I wanted to see if I could feather blend the red, orange and yellows together and I'm quite happy with the way it turned out! After I colored the entire image I cut a mask so I could air brush a background. My favorite part of making this card is the waves. I noticed one of my Copic greens was labeled "Ocean Green", G28 and I thought perfect, the pen cap is as dark as that green tomato in the photo!
To make the waves I used a Papertrey Ink scalloped border die and Neenah Solar white card stock, keeping the part I'd usually throw away. Next I ran it through the Cuttlebug swirls embossing folder, then used the air brush with G28, G24, G21 & G20 markers. I really like being able to make my own papers! The waves are attached to the card using foam tape on each layer.
Then all I needed to do was figure out the rest of the card. Trying to keep it simple I found a sheet of orange Color Mates card stock in my stash and cut a strip to go opposite that bright surf board, matted everything in black and put it all together. I added a Quickutz sun die and some Want2Scrap half pearls and SU Crystal Effects to the lenses of her sun glasses for a finishing touch.
