Helloooo Friends! Can you believe a week has gone by already? It’s Day 7. and things are flying by. My hope is that you are enjoying stealing some time for yourself and feeling the benefits.
This card was created for the Stamping Bella blog for my monthly feature. Have you see the collection of The Uptown Girls Zodiac Collection! I am a collector at heart so I had to have the entire collection. Even if you aren’t a Zodiak person (I am not) I had to look up which Zodiak my daughter was & it turns out she’s on a cusp. A cusp is when you are born a few days between two Zodiak signs. I have always been aware that I was on a cusp but, not my daughter lol.
For todays post I decided the best way to attack the intimating pleats and folds would be best to watercolor them plus this would save me time. Here is a video I recently posted with easy watercoloring tips with Tombow markers. Watch Stamping Bella’s amazing colorist Marker Geek with her pleats and folds post here or this video here.
The image was stamped with Black India ink onto Tim Holtz watercolor paper. To watercolor I used Tombow watercolor markers and stamped the image a total of three times. When you know that you will be cutting out the dress you don’t have to worry about staying in the lines.
When the paper is dry cut out the sections of the dress that you want to use. Take a marker around the edge of the cut areas to cover any white edges. Set aside and finish watercoloring the girl on the front panel…. be sure to color under the dress. When dry glue down the dress panels for extra dimension and interest. Super easy!
Before we get started here’s a quick tip on hair. When you are coloring the hair leave a white space. In this case I was watercoloring .. so when dry I added an accent color with mustard for added interest and easy highlights
When everything was done I had to paint a little shimmer on a few areas on the dress panels. If you find pleats and folds intimidating so why not divert the recipients attention by cutting part of the garment OR you can take one of Kit & Clowders Pleat class here or Make It Crafty Creases’s & Folds class here
Thanks for your visits these past 7 days I am so grateful and I love seeing what you all are coloring . Hugs, Kathy
