Hello!! Happy Hump Day!!
Today I have a few fun projects to share. My lovely friend Melissa asked me to be a guest on the A Random Fan blog today, and I was happy to say yes. I have seen these cute and whimsical images around blogland and Facebook. I chose to showcase Gemma on Cloud 9 (Includes 3 images: Gemma, clouds, and both together) today. She's so darn cute and as soon as I saw her I knew exactly what I wanted to do. A CAS card with clouds and bright colors... Here's the end result...
It's been quite some time since I used my cloud stencil and distress ink pad with a TH sponge to make the billowy clouds. I added two white felt clouds for some texture. Colored the clouds, rainbow and Gemma with Copics. She was a lot of fun to color, so were the clouds and the rainbow. I used a white gel pen to add some dots to Gemma's hair and the rainbow. The card base is red and I matted the scene on to a piece of black cardstock. The sentiment is part of my growing computer generated collection.
I had some time to color up two more of Gemma (alone) in a smaller scale and popped them on to some MFT die cut tags.
I stayed with the CAS design. Went for a fun Naughty & Nice theme here... Now I have a question for you... Which tag do you think I colored all with Copics? Including the clouds? If you guessed the "naughty" one then you have a good eye! Here's a closer look...
Yes, I colored the clouds with Copics and used my cloud stencil as a guide. Being able to use the stencil made it super easy and I was able to be more precise without worrying about getting ink on my colored image. Happy to say this is a one layered tag and now that I've experimented with markers and my stencil I might be making more scenes with clouds colored with Copics.
Not to be outdone, the "nice" tag has a fun element as well. I did use the TH sponge & Distress ink for the background clouds, but I also added a felt cloud right under Gemma. :)
Now she's got a comfy spot to rest on. I was totally stuck on what do to with the top part of the tag until I stopped by Rachel's awesome blog. Her cute tags inspired me to break out my little clothes pins and twine and add it to the top. Thanks Rachel!
I hope you weren't too bored with all my babbling and enjoyed today's projects. I'd like to thank Melissa and Sherry for having me showcase Gemma on Cloud 9 today, I hope you're inspired as well. Here are some links to A Random Fan's blog, to the Etsy store where you can pick up some really cute and whimsical digis, and to their challenge blog. Thanks for stopping by, have a terrific day!!
