I think I struggle most with coloring skin and hair. I did take Copic Markers for Cardmakers by Online Card Classes but didn't get to practice as much yet.
I used distress inks to create these backgrounds.
For the background above, I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire, Dusty Concord, and Victorian Velvent.
My inspiration for all of these cards came from the recent Mama Elephant stampede/release from their design team. So much fun!! These are the cards I created with Tiny Heroes:
I added sequins that matched the gorgeous backgrounds. I will link to all the colors below.
And here are the cards I created using Shooting Star stamp set.
I love the contrast of the background for this one.
Aren't those sequin colors gorgeous?!? I love how they match the background and the girl's dress.
Yes, I decided to go with pink clouds. They came out so cute. Love, love love!
Everything goes with black. This soft pink is out of this world!!!
Ohmagawd, even I'm amazed at how this background came out. I added Hero Arts Unicorn White Ink Spray and MFT Mix-Ables Sheer Shimmer Mist to add more pop. What do you think??
She's like me - just sitting in the clouds, lost in thought. ;-) I know, I know. Generally, people make and post one card. I don't even get to take pictures of all the cards I create, but February will be an extremely busy month for me so I'm getting as many done now as I can while I have my creativity in full mode.
