|Gabbie Love to Colour|
Today I'm sharing this latest card, made with a gorgeous digi stamp which you can find here at Faery Inks. I've coloured it with my Spectrum Noir markers and pencils as follows :
Skin : FS1,FS3,FS9 TN3,TN4. Pencils 4, 9, 95
Hair : BG4, BG9, BP2, BP3, BP6. Pencil 119, 42, 31
Clothes : BG1, BG3, BG4, BG6
Other: GB10, CG2. Pencils 59, 84
How to make the Background
The background is really simple and effective. I've selected a frame die and cut it out from a sheet of scrap cardstock. You need about 180gsm, I've used Neenah. I have used the hole (no2) to ink through with 2 colours of Distress Stain - Picked Rasberry and Tumbled Glass. I then flicked it with water and dabbed it away with kitchen roll to add texture. Then I have flicked and splatted some more ink around the card using the same two colours.
I wrote 'dream..colour...create' round the edge of my coloured shape. I then used the 'waste' shape (no 1) to draw around with a fineliner to create a frame. I drew 3 different frames, moving my shape each time.
The great thing about this technique is that you do not need to be careful or precise!
