OK, the Fab'n'Funky theme this week is a colour combo of "Chocolate and Blue" and we are sponsored by Dude Time Doodles. I so wanted to use one otheir images but due to my printer woes . . . couldn't! So had to dust off my stamps and play with some ink for a change.
I have used "Summer by the Sea" set from Stampin Up and have coloured it using only 5 different promarkers ( and a sneaky bit of white gel pen!) I got the idea after seeing Nix's demo on Create and Craft this weekend (Nikky from Polka Doodles) and wondered if I could copy it and also whether it would work with any stamps. Sorry for the poor photo but the card looks very Sepia toned in real life . . with a modern twist of course.
Here is a close up of the image and simple colouring style used to achieve this effect.
Edited to add - promarkers coloured used are: blush, tan, cinnamon, henna & cool grey 4
I also decided to make a strip using only the flower bit from the main image. I have repeated it and then coloured using the same technique as the topper. The card is finished off with some gems and 2 acetate butterflies. The sentiment is also from the same set.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Fab'n'Funky: colour combo "Chocolate and Blue"
Passion for Promarkers: Photo inspiration
Sketchy Colours: colour combo of "Blue, Brown & White"
Now I need to get me some internet time and catch up with some serious blogging. Take care and hope to visit really soon,
