Happy Monday, if that's possible.
I have a cool card to share with you today.
I made it for the new challenge at Aurora Wings challenge blog.
The new themes are either, "no lines coloring", or color bingo.
As you can see, I went with the "no lines coloring" option.
I have colored with this technique a handful of times, and I still find
it quite the challenge. But I enjoy pushing my coloring abilities with
new techniques. I think the key to "no lines", and all coloring in general,
is contrast. Make sure your images cover the spectrum of the darkest darks,
to the lightest lights, for a full dimensional feel.
Now that I see my owl up close on the monitor, I see where I need to go back
and add some white highlights to help with dimension.
I did add teal tulle behind the owl to give him some contrast from the
black diamond shape behind it.
I broke the seal on my Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells 8 X 8 paper pack.
I've had it for months, but was never sure it fit the project I was working on.
This works, for sure.
using Copics in mainly E19, E09,YR08, YR07, YR04, Y38, Y35, and Y13.
I was trying to achieve a metal copper/golden appearance.
using Mercury Glass Stickles.
Some dew drops in gold, with Mercury Glass Stickles added for fun
The papers are much busier than I am used to using together on one project,
but I do like it. Maybe a black ribbon to break it up in the middle?
I'll be here all day trying make this better. Better just leave it... for now.
Be sure to stop by the AW Challenge blog to see all the incredible art from
the talented DT, and maybe even challenge yourself with one of the themes.
