I have been having a bit of relaxing, therapeutic fun with an image from Ching-Chou Kuik.
Ching-Chou Kuik – (Image was a weekend freebie offer and is no longer available. I could not find it in her etsy store either)
X-Press It card
black and silver card
white paint pen
Wink of Stella – Shimmer Clear
A5 card blank
I printed out the image on X-Press it and coloured it in. The sky background is one I learned in the very first monthly lesson from Kit and Clowder and I highly recommend Alyce and her fantastic courses to you. They are worth every penny/dime/cent and her one to one feedback is so encouraging and helpful. I am still very much in the early stages being a slow burner but have already learned so much and improved my colouring skills.
The moon and her jewelry are coloured with a silver glitter pen and Wink of Stella has been applied to her wings. The stars are made with a white paint pen , the first lot coloured over with the Copics and then another fresh layer put on which makes some of them look fainter and further away.
The coloured image has been matted and layered on black, dull silver and mirri silver card. The front flap of the card blank is trimmed back to half way and the mounted image attached so that it hangs over the edge. The computer printed sentiment has been matted onto black card and then stuck to the inside flap of the card.
I am really pleased with the way this one went especially as I do not have many yellow pens and blending them has always been tricky. I tried a different colour combination for her hair and think I got away with it! She looks very pensive sitting on the moon, I wonder what she is thinking!
Thank you for visiting. Take care.
