To get in more Copic coloring practice, I colored up The Greeting Farm’s Anya Lifts again, but this time with some different color combinations. I colored her up to be more pale than my usual coloring, but still with depth of skin color with E000, 00, 11 and 13, with R20 blush. To create a platinum blonde, I went with Y11, Y21, and E31. For her heart barrette and top, I used RV21, 23, 25 and 29 and the pink ruffles under her top and bow are in RV10 and 21. I’m not a girly girl type of crafter, but this cutie just looked more girly so I went with the pinks.
Like in yesterday’s card, for her jean shorts I used B91, 93, 95 and 97, and her boots are E21, 23, 25 and 29 (after all, we don’t need to totally re-create the wheel, right?! LOL). Then I concentrated on creating an open, translucent look for the pink balloons with RV00, 10, and 52, with cast shadows in 93 and 95. I topped those balloons, her heart barrette and earrings with clear Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents for shimmer and shine.
Although I wanted to create a CAS look with enough white space, I wanted to keep this card a more normal size so I took it up to 4.5″ x 6″ to hopefully give enough negative space around the image to be clean. I used one of the borders from the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Border Die 2 Set to cut down the side of the card front and added a bright poppy floral patterned paper from Pebbles “Sunny Side” paper stack as a little extra interest for the card. I think the bright, bold colors take this card from just girly to girl power. 🙂
The happy birthday stamp is from the Tiddly Inks “Flying High” stamp set (this is retired now), and as a finishing touch I scattered seven of pink bling pieces. The following is a video share of both this card and the one I posted yesterday:
