I am back with another card today. I had this image called Fantasy Hat by Julia Spiri printed out for a while and now it finally got colored and converted into a card.
I wanted to play with a favorite technique of mine, which is only one single pop of color in the image. Previously I had done this with shades of grey and a pop of color, but today I wanted a more “sepia” look for this image and so I actually used my favorite skin color combo here as my sepia color. That is Burnt Ochre, Peach, Light Peach, Eggshell and White (Prismacolor pencils). All the image, except the bow, is done with varying combos of those 5 colors. I used Black for a few details that I felt needed highlighting after the pencil had dulled them out.
I loved how this image turned out and I then cut it out with a lacy oval die from my stash and cut the lacey edge off. I cut a piece of pink patterned paper to layer underneath it. I also cut 3 hexagons from pink patterned paper and pink fun foam and I cut a rounded part into the biggest one to fit next to the oval image matte.
I inked the edges of the hexagons and the pink oval with brown Memento Ink. I had the perfect clock face patterned paper in my stash. I stamped the three single words on the large hexagon and embossed it with Ranger Princess Gold embossing powder. I added a piece of pink lace from my stash to the bottom edge of the card and then adhered all the parts to the panel and then the panel to a 5.5×5.5 cardbase.
I am looking forward to trying this technique with some other base shades and colors.
