Bouquet

Hi everyone, it's been a while.
Forced some time to color play using
this DoveArt Studios image called



I stamped it off with light grey ink so that i could enhance the delicacy of the flowers.
Then, I lay down an under painting with copics. BV00, YG03 and Y00
Finally, I took a few colored pencils to emphasize the line divisions; adding a bit of greyed lavender to the shadows.
Super simple and perfect for any occasion.

Hope you all have a blessed Holiday.

It keeps getting better


               


                  
I know you've heard Rhea Weigand has
released a new line with CC Designs.
And you know, I was all ove creating with them.
There are five sets:

             
      Cloudy Days and Waves                         Dotted Daisies                            Double Stitched Circles


                                                              
Fancy Rectangles Build A Card Set                                                          Half Double Stitched Circles        
    
I've taken three of the sets and created my card.
I've used



I love Rhea's create a card dies. 
The rectangle is always my go to. It just fits everything. 
What I love most about this one is that I can go vertical or horizontal with my card.
The little inside bit, is a square. LOVEEEE
Although you can't see it well, I used all sizes of the  Cloudy Days and Waves
with my background paper. Then I scattered the placement to create the cloud look.
Now, the coolest thing here is...
Wait for it...
When I cut the glued cloud pieces together an went to cut the shape...
ONE PASS through my machine.

I used a the leaf with Dotted Daisies
I was seriously so impressed with the cloud, I had to test another theory,
I used art foam for my material. 
Yep, one pass.
Oh my gollies.

And that leaf...
so delicate and it fell right out of the die.
No punching, poking or struggling.
Love them.

So for my total cuteness to finish of my card, I choose this little honey,

Oh, and did I mention the price of the new dies?
They are all under 20$.
Go check them out.
Hurry, the supplies are limited.

Painted Greyscale

I saw one of our Friends on PPCF color an image in greyscale a few months back.
Needless to say, I fell so in love with this artist.
Here are her links

Kelly Eden Greyscale Digital Stamp

Exclusive artist-Emily Luella


Instead of printing her in greyscale, I no lines her by reducing the saturation in Word.
that allowed me the capabilities to color over her to create a painted piece.
I used PolyChromos by Faber Castell

But...
PPCF's very own Shell Seaward has an Etsy Shop with the most amazing designs.
She creates them from actual photos she take and them sketches out the image.
So, yeah, we all get to enjoy her photography skills vis our coloring.

I haddddd to color up her avatar photo.
Bumblebee on Chives.


I love this photo so much, I lightened the lines in 
Word and tried to recreate her Macro background
I've underpainted with copics and overlayed with prisma.

Everything is framed up using Creative Basics by Rhea's new die
