Hey there, I hope you all had a great week! It's Friday, and I'm happy!
Today I have something to show you that is not my normal style. I challenged myself to give it a try, and I think I like the outcome. I may need to do this from time to time.
I've made cards in the past using a "Monochromatic" theme, excluding skin and hair.... but NEVER have I attempted to do an ENTIRE CARD, INCLUDING, Skin and Hair to be only shades of brown.... Sort of like an old photo.... So THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS when I attempt it!
A very dear friend of mine has a birthday coming up. And yes it's a man. Who says you can't give a man a card that has a girl holding a flower on it? He loves gardening etc, so why not?
I chose to add twine instead of lace or ribbon, and a bow rather than pretty flowers, so it had more of a "manly" look to it!
I colored this sweet Little Rapunzel with Copics, using ONLY Earth Shades. I really love that way this turned out. The papers I used are from K&Company, and were the perfect paper combination for such a "vintage" style card.
I hope you've been inspired to give this coloring technique a try. It's not as hard as it seems. I admit I was a little intimidated by the idea, but it worked out quite well. I'm glad I tried it.
