Paper Craft Planet Sketch
You must be wondering how I've been able to make so many cards in the past few days, huh? I've had this past week off from work, that's how. Oh, I've done a few things other than make art, but mostly just made art. It is my week OFF, after all! Over on Paper Craft Planet, they had a sketch that looked fairly intriguing. I thought, "ok, I'll just knock this one out right quick". Ok, yeah, right. It's taken me hours and I didn't even have to color anything. I colored the image earlier in the week when I just felt like coloring images for a day. The heart image and the Love and Hate image are from Bombshell Stamps. I got the lyrics from "Burnin' Love" from the internet. So yeah, I colored the heart image with my Prismacolor pencils. The Love & Hate sentiment is embossed with black powder. Both the heart and the sentiment banner are pop-dotted. Here's a little close-up of the heart. I'm showing you this because I just love this image. I would've colored it with my Copics, but there are some really small places and I can get better detail with the pencils than with the Copics. When I see this image, I envision jewelry. It would be so cool to have a pin like this. Oooh, maybe I'll make one out of felted wool. Another project, another day. This is the left hand side of the card. I really wanted to use my black paper with the shiny pink lips on it but couldn't figure out what to put on top of it. Finally came up with this teal lace. It needed something else and so I brought in a bit more of the white from the card from the lyrics area and used a narrow white ribbon to weave through the lace. I can't say it's my favorite look, but it did ok for the card. One other thing that was fun, was making this card 4x9. It fits into a regular business envelope. Thanks for stopping by today.
