Hi Everyone! Have you heard yet that the coloring challenges are ending? Well there is one last left, and it’s as easy as can be as it is Anything Goes! With the challenges ending I knew I wanted to “go out with a bang” (don’t worry, I’m not going any where). But I wanted to create something spectacular, but at the same time very much me, clean and simple with a twist.
So todays twist is coloring glitter effects! Zoe introduced me to this technique and I want to add it to everything, but I’m trying to keep myself a little bit contained tho. But with this being the last I’m adding to my whole character. I’ve choosen to go with Alwina the Good Witch and with her spire and crown I felt she looked like a queen so that is what I went with.
I choosed to go with reds and yellow as they are royal colours, but I wanted it to be towards the softer spectrum, so she is more coral than red and then I went with my favourite yellows for the golden tone. With the colors being very soft and I didn’t want her hair to be the focal part, I choose to go with a ash blond color. Then I went to town on adding all the sparkles, there is two videos for that, you can either look at the card making video and get the sped up version or you can go for the real time and see every little dot as I made them.
I had printed Alwina out rather on the bigger side (well big for me, she still fits on an A2 card size, 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) so there was not much room for anything else, and also I really wanted her to be the crown of the card. So I finished it up with a little strip of pattern paper that both matches the dress but also simplifies the silhouette, and some chipboard pieces to make the card a little more even.
