Today I have a card to show you that finally has some pencil coloring on it again. This sweet digi is called Trixy Balloons and is by Digi Doodles Studio.
I sized Trixy in Silhouette Studio and printed her out onto Canson C’ a Grain Drawing paper. I colored her with my Prismacolor colored pencils. I added two spots of white on her sunglasses with a white Milky Pop pen. I find that this gel pen works the best over pencils – and I have tried a few!
Once she was colored, I returned her to my Silhouette to cut her out. I cut her and her balloons separately as I had a plan for them. I also cut the shapes a second time out of black cardstock. I ran a black marker along the edge of the digi and glued the two shapes together.
I created a background on blue cardstock with my metallic watercolors. Thank you to some inspiration from Kristina Werner
, I created a cloudy wonderland on my background for Trixy to fly over. My panel was just regular cardstock, so I used the paints with as little water added to them as possible. I finished it off with the white metallic splashes in the sky to create some movement.
Another discovery I made a while ago is Scrapbook Pal’s Scrappy Tape. I like to adhere my cardpanels with double sided tape to that the corners don’t lift and so that the panel stays put. This has a lower price-point than the Scor-Tape I used to use, but works just as well. I have been very happy with the results. I used it here to adhere the panel to the black cardbase.
I added Trixy to her dream world, adding button thread as balloon strings and threaded it under her hands. I added the sentiment using a Spellbinders die that allows for cutting, embossing and stenciling. I popped the sentiment up with foam tape and that completed my card.
