Once Upon A Dream

#70 Once Upon A Dream


I used "Rory- I need my beauty sleep" and colored her with my Prismacolor Pencils using the no-line technique.


Among my stash I found some old fluffy stuff, you know- the kind that pops when using the heatgun.

Spooky GDT for Craft Rocket Challenge


Haha, no, I'm not spooky! But the theme over at CRC are! Spooky!



I am happy to join Craft Rocket Challenges as a GDT for this challenge. CRC is a new challengeblog on the block, with a very talented owner and Design Team! Make sure to visit them!

I used a great image from Make It Crafty called "Frazzled Cat". I had quite some job to figure out HOW on earth print on black paper... (I still want a printer with white ink!). Papers are Bo Bunny, luckily in matching colors (!) since I tend to color first and then hunt down matching papers.




I love using black. Black papers, black pencils, black markers... for everything, not only shading. After "converting" entirely to Prismacolor pencils, my huge amount of Promarkers collect dust. This time I picked up my Black and Cool Grey 5 (Promarkers).
----
So how did I do this?
1. Printed the image as usual
2. Used the Cool Grey 5 to trace the black lines of the image
3. With the black marker; I colored the entire background and inside of the image, leaving a thin rim for the cool grey to show where the lines are. You might have to this several times to get a even layer of black... (I have several black markers, so not afraid of using them *lol*)
4. Picked up my pencils to make the fur. I used White and greys. For the eyes and wings I used a dark green, and a light green yellowish pencil to make the eyes really pop in the darkness...
5. To make some areas in the black more shiny, I used my black pencil.

Other solutions: If your not afraid of using a lot of printer ink, you can manipulate the image to show white lines on black background. Or if you have a Silhouette, or similar machine, use a white pen instead of cutting blade ( I used that feature on my retired Silhouette, but not on my new Cameo. I totally forgot I had this option when making this coloring... )

That's it from me, thank you for reading!

Autumn Fairy

Autumn fairy
Hi, here is some inspiration for the Bright Colours Challenge at Make It Colourful.
I have used a freebie that came along with a MiC Newsletter, how naughty of me! For me she is a autumn fairy, so I gave her autumn colours. I’m usually not so happy with yellow and orange but no rules without exeptions!

She is colored up with Prismacolor Pencils  and I added some stickles along the edges. cardmaking is pretty difficult due to a hand injury, so colouring only for me. Hopefully my hand will get better soon, at least the sensation is coming back slowly.
Thanks for popping by!

I'll enter following challenges:

Glamzombie!


Hi everyone!

Its OCTOBER!!! The months passes by so quickly now that its hard to keep up! I assume thats better than waiting for the clock to tick, but it would be nice if it didnt go quite so fast lol



Through The Purple Haze is back with a new challenge today, and theme is

HALLOWEEN/MAGICAL



So if you dont "do" Halloween, you have an option :)

I am very found of "The Walking Dead", so when I had a chance to play with Glamzombie from our faboulous sponsor The East Wind, I was a very happy chick!

https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/theeastwind


Glamzombie was fun to color, but difficult with the variety of textiles and directions of them. But I think I did it ok.


The card is simple, the image, and some layers of black bazzill and a greenyellowish bazzill. For the edges I used my black gelatos and smeared it towards the center. I made an background for the image using a picture as color inspiration, keeping the colors in greenyellowish and grey.
