Today's post is really fun. I'm sure you have heard about CHF's "SUMMER STAMP STAR DESIGN CHALLENGE", if not just click on my link to read more.
We as Cornish team members wanted to do a fun blog hop highlighting the different challenges.....guess which one I picked....
COLORING! (I know you must be shocked...)
This card is ALL ABOUT THE COLORING... I actually find the Thomas Kinkade line colors quite easily. The detail and shading that is already in this fabulous stamp means that I only need to lay down the color and the stamp does the rest! This new stamp gets released tomorrow...I have a "thing" for old covered bridges so I immediately fell in love with this stamp!
Here are the short list of details on this card:
The Fishin' Hole (Thomas Kinkade), Father's Day Centers (Mona Lisa Moments) by Cornish Heritage Farms
Espresso Adirondack (Ranger), Chocolate Pearlescent Brilliance (Tsukineko)
Simply Smooth White (Prism), White (Neenah)
Airbrush System (Copic)
Brads (Heidi Swap)
Rectangle Dies (Spellbinders)
Now the close up. I can tell you that I used about 20 different colors (at least) but coloring Kinkades is very relaxing for me. I colored the whole thing with copics and then went in with my white prismacolor pencil and highlighted a few spots on that big tree.
The coloring challenge is one of five fabulous challenges. Make sure you check them out. Each member on the blog hop today is highlighting a different challenge.
Lets go see what they did:
Becky Olsen, Jennifer Roach, Joanne Allison, Julia Stainton, Kristine Reynolds, Lisa Silver and Lisa Strahl....
Hope I inspired you today to color! Watch this week as I will discuss coloring technique in more detail....
