And here is my card..........
I so love this illustration!! The colors I used are Tattered Rose for her skin; Scattered Straw for her hair; Weathered Wood for her blue under dress; Antique Linen for her pinafore. I used my water brush, keeping it fairly dry since I was taking ink straight off the pad. It took several layers for the shading I wanted, but I really like the results. I will be getting some of the refill bottles so I can get richer colores in future projects. This doesn't mean I will abandon my Copics --- no way! Just like Prismacolors, the distress inks are a very good accompiament for the Copics. The papers are PaperTrey Ivory cardstock for the base card and the diamond cutouts. The patterned paper is from the K&Company La Boutique collection. I embossed the diamond shapes with Birds & Swirls folder from Cuttlebug and rubbed Brilliance Pearlescent Ice Blue in on the embossing and the edges of the papers. Pretty blue and white pearls top it all off. Here's a close-up of Alice:
Well, I am rushing off to Springfield with my mom for a long-overdue visit to Hobby Lobby! Probably a stop at Barnes and Noble, too. I'm suddenly in the mood to read the original story of Alice in Wonderland --- I only saw the Disney version years ago!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a grand weekend planned!
