Today I've got another DT project for Crafting Desert Diva's Digi design team. Did I mention how much fun I am having?? I'm so thankful to Tara for giving me a chance!
Here's my card for today.
Isn't she super adorable??? I wanted to try a different coloring medium this time so I got out my Polychromos pencils. I'm still learning proper tecniques and her head was a lot of space to cover! The blending is the hardest I think but I'm getting there. After I finished coloring, I fussy cut her out. Along with two of the little flowers and the other ladybug. Also colored with Polychromos. I adhered her to the background with foam tape so she would stand out. One of the flowers I glued on her dress and the other I tucked under. I also scattered a few of the yellow sequins from the Citrus Bliss sequins.
Now for the background I wanted something nice and bright. So I reached for my Zig Clean color markers and made a simple plaid pattern. I did my best to match the colors I used on the bear. Pretty darn close! The background is cut out with the largest die from Fancy Frames. Of course I also wanted a turquoise layer that matched everything else so I used the same Zigs to color the edges of white cardstock. Ta Da! This layer was hand cut and all were adhered to the white card base.
Once again I used my computer to print my own sentiment. I used the largest 3D flag banner die. I wanted it to have a little something extra. I got my Copics out and used some of the very pale blues to give it a bit more dimension. I then cut some teeny tiny pieces of foam tape and adhered the ladybug to the banner. Whew! I love how she turned out!!
As always, thank you for stopping by!
