We have a new challenge over at Color Me Creative, to use your fave colouring technique. Now being a newbie I don’t actually have that many under my belt yet, but I really like blending and feathering.
I started my flower with the intention of using the feathering technique, but as I worked from the dark colour one side into the centre, and then from light into the centre on the opposite side I started to really like the accent that the white space created and decided to leave it. I guess I’ve just really blended! Below is a close up of the flower.. ok so it’s not technically correct but I really like the effect of it. What do you think?
Do you like that stunning flower image? It’s by Tiffany Doodles, our sponsor for this challenge, her digi images are just fabulous. I used to be on Tiffany’s design team so it was really lovely to get the opportunity to play with some of her digis again. I’ve missed her!
As soon as I was asked to choose an image and saw this one in her shop my face lit up, isn’t it just gorgeous! What’s fun about digi images is that you can resize them too. This particular digi stamp also comes with a Nestie compatible border, see image below, which I would have used if I hadn’t wanted to try out this technique from Jennifer McGuire where you create a little window using acetate. I haven’t tried this technique before, but it’s so lovely seeing the reflection of the little pearls on the inside of the card inside, I love it.
For my card I used Week Two’s colours from the Summer Card Camp series which I’m thoroughly enjoying. We are already half way through the camp, it’s fun having something in your inbox each day to inspire and motivate you into action!
Now these are my kinda colours! YUM-EE!!!
So pop on over to each of the DT to see what they’ve chosen as their fave technique, there’s LOADS of loveliness to see!
