I used this adorable
for my Design Team Inspiration.
that's right -
my first card as a member of
Design Team Family!
This is a step card - I keep a "template" in a notebook of the various types of cards I find.
It can be modified to fit any image I've used, with just a little effort.
Since I don't have a large collection of markers
(YET - I now have 24 or 25 Spectrum Noir and will add to the collection when I can),
I color with watercolor pencils or,
in this case,
with regular colored pencils.
I do my coloring, shading and outlining and blend with baby oil on a qtip.
I drew the clouds free hand, fancy cut them and outlined them with Liquid Pearls.
I brushed them lightly with white glue and added the glitter.
I printed the sentiments on white card stock, inked and added the gold thread
The flourishes were cut on white card stock and inked with the Distress Paint.
Gold Liquid Pearls and the clear acrylic gems were randomly added as accents.
