Today is my day over at the Picket Fence Studios blog! I’m so happy I got a moment in my crazy week to color this gorgeous Sandra Girl image. I have been in awe of her from the moment I saw her and now I have two of them. Yep, two. The original size (shown here) and Kiss Kiss Sandra Girl which has the image a little larger along with the sentiment I used today. The original has a die coming out soon too!!
I colored her using Copic Markers (listed below in my Link Deli list) and just enjoyed working on her shading. All of the girls really allow for practicing coloring skills and playing with skin and hair variations. I thought pink would be a nice compliment to Sandra since she reminds me of a friend who happens to love pink.
After I was done coloring, I used Distress Oxide ink on watercolor paper with the Random Dots Stencil for a pretty background. The butterfly is from the original Sandra too.
I hope you enjoy this card. Hop over to the Picket Fence Studios blog for more and for lots of inspiration from the design team each week. Until next time, wishing a safe Memorial Day weekend (if you celebrate) full of thanks and remembrance.
Happy Release Day!! So happy to share with you some projects I created for the Picket Fence Studios March Release AND a chance to win a $15 gift card for shopping at PFS. Yep, it is a great day!
I am going to get right to it and introduce the new stamp set called Color Can Heal the Soul. This is a pretty paint look image that has beautiful sentiments that you are sure to love. As soon as I saw the stamp set, I thought about creating a coffee cup that I want to have! And even better, Picket Fence Studios has just the die for the job. I inked the paint drip image with a rainbow of colors and then stamped onto white card stock.
Then using the die, I cut out a coffee cup. I thought this sentiment from the set was just what I would put on my morning cup. In fact, I would love this to BE my morning cup for coffee!! To add a bit of texture, I embossed using the Random Dots Stencil. I love using a stencil for embossing…a great way to stretch these must have products! I went into my stash of sequins and started grabbing colors until I found the combination I liked to finish the card.
Next up, I wanted to focus completely on another stencil. A new stencil called Oceans of Fish. As I debated pulling out the Glimmer Paste (and believe me, I almost did), I chose another version of shine for this one. I thought the fish would be amazing in foil! So I grabbed Transfer Gel (which acts pretty much like embossing paste except a little thinner) and applied it to a watercolored panel.
Let the gel dry for at least an hour and then add Deco Foil Transfer Sheets on top with a heat laminator (or foiling machine). I love the shine you get! I added some Embossing Glitter for the sentiment to add to the shine. With all that is going on (more texture and shine in person too), I thought it best to leave this one cleaner.
I hope you like the sets I am featuring today. I’ll be back over the upcoming days and weeks to showcase more of the release! But now…the GIVEAWAY! In your comments, tell me your favorite way to use a stencil (because I always need more ideas). That’s it. Comment and share your idea. I’ll randomly choose one winner and announce on March 19th. Thanks so much for stopping in today! See you soon.
