Hello my lovely crafty friends; It's me Sharette and I am back to share how I create a card from start to finish. or (A-Z) I have a lot to go through so I am going to just jump right in.
First up weather it's a 'rubber, clear or digi items, I like to stamp my images on a sheet of card stock a few times, just in case I mess up or if I want to try out more than one hair color or technique; especially if it's a new stamp or the first time I am inking or printing it out. So here is my image that I stamped on a card stock. This was the first time I inked up "Anya Styles" from The Greeting Farm. so I filled up my page with her. I LOVE this image. She has gorgeous Big Hair with lots of layres and curls. I wanted to really follow the layers and waves in her hair so it took me a few try to get it just right. (or at least something I am happy with. (As you can see I left one just 'stamped' so that you can see what she looks like with out any coloring.
Edited 7/25/13: I had a comment left for me that was very informative: For those that are first time colors or are not familiar with some of the terms that I am using: OMS (Oder less Mineral Spirits) I purchase these items in the Art section of my local Michael's ..paper stump is just that: A piece of tightly wrapped paper that you use for blending your colors. IF you click on the side bar to my blog I have several tutorial that explains and shows what these items are.. Great Feed Back :))) Thank you!!
I couldn't go with out showing you my card that I made. This was a Birthday card I made for my Daughter. Her favorite color is yellow.. So that was the reason I have two of them colored up almost the same, the first one was me just testing out my color combo on my sheet (#3, top right)
Here is my supplies I used for my card.: Card stock: PTI, DP: My Minds Eye "Life of the Party" stickers "Recollections from Michael's
and here is the Inside of my card.
I hope that you all have enjoyed my little A-Z of creating a card, If you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you. I know that many of u are addicted to your "Copics" But I started with my Pencils and I have grown to love them more and more everyday.. So instead of trying to name all of the colors that I used I have attached a link to a "Prisma Color Chart".. It's one of my most important tool in my coloring arsenal. I have it taped to the side of one my my cubes on my desk so that I can refer to it any time I need to. I found a few of them by searching the net..Here is a great chart that you can down load and print.
