I think this will be the last card I share that has the tilted-buffalo-check feature. Pretty sure.
This was one of two fall cards in camp last month. The biggest challenge in the coloring of this image (actually, two images) is determining what part is a leaf, what is a flower, etc. I always go back to the Stampin’ Up! photo to check before I start coloring, but that’s because I’m — you said the word, didn’t you?
We used the White Chalk Marker to color the cotton bolls. It has a pretty thick tip so we used the Dark Black Stampin’ Blends marker to touch up the image. I’m not sure every stamper did this, but on this sample I outlined the entire stamped image with the Ivory Stampin’ Blends marker to give it depth:
To achieve the shading on the pitcher, I used the same process I’ve talked about before:
- Color the entire image with a light marker.
- Shade the sides of the pitcher (about 1/4″ toward the middle) to cause them to recede.
- Use the light marker to blend the line between dark and light, leaving an area in the middle to bring it forward and give the illusion of a rounded surface.
- If there’s not enough of a light “mark,” squiggle a little Color Lifter over the area.
