Sure it may feel a little early for Halloween but we all know that those holidays come around faster than we expect and having our crafty projects done head of time is such a relief. Plus, Halloween crafting is just plain fun, especially when you have images like Sweet Little Spell to work with! This month, Sandy is doing some masking and using colored pencils to bring her images to life. She's also added a companion from the Pile of Fun set all dressed up in a custom outfit!
Hello coloring friends! It’s August, and though it might feel early, the fall IS on the way! With a new heatwave hitting my Pacific Northwest region this week, I’m ready to start wishing a little cooler weather in, are you?
I stamped up the girls from two different stamp sets to put them into one scene…stamping the sweet child dressed in a witch outfit and masking just the right-hand side of her to stamp her girlfriend. Don’t make yourself fussy-cut out more than you need! Use any light color of ink, greys, tans, etc,, if you want to do some no-line coloring like this. It works well with colored pencils like the Luminance “Portrait” set I was trying out here!
Not being a portrait artist myself, it was interesting trying to imagine a lot of fancy color theory used by those selecting the colors in this set! For my stamped card, they worked fine — the only color I felt I was missing was a true black, but that one really dark indigo blue worked just as well.
As I often say: spend time coloring a card, and you can get away with just stamping a sentiment (I tucked it “behind” the tip of hat and broom)…and adding a layer of paper, if that. Once you rock the coloring, even a one-layer card is more than enough!
The coloring of the witch had blue underneath to give it a fun “glowing” kind of black. That was all pretty standard. Next, it came down to the girl I adapted — I bet you weren’t expecting her to change race AND outfit (especially into a crazy gogo outfit like one I once wore). And no, there are no pictures in existence as far as I know! Maybe I’m in someone’s scrapbook...but as far as I’m concerned, it’s just a crazy memory!
Whether you’re ready for fall or not - get yourself ready in the next month or so. Autumn is going to be here before you know it! I’ll be the one cheering on cooler temps showing up on my weather app!
