Makeup 4 the Weekend Challenge - M4TW13

>> Friday, January 22, 2010

It's time for another Makeup4theWeekend challenge from Paper Makeup Stamps!
This week it was Amber's turn to get your juices flowing with this fabulous sketch...

In a stamping group i'm in, the stamplicious yahoo group, our feburary homepage contest is any valentine's day card! So i'm doing a bit of a combo!
I decided to use one of the new releases from PMS... isabella. I think she's one of my new favorite fairies. Yes i'm aware i say that every month!

Here is my take on the sketch... um, ok so my "take" is usually pretty straight forward to the sketch! Less thinking that way! :)

If you read yesterday's post, you'll remember i'm playing with a new coloring technique (new to me) of doing high contrast. Leaving the center mostly uncolored or with an extremely pale color and using a much darker color in the recesses of the image. Hence the words, high contrast. haha. This is what i'm working on with my students in the Copic Club i help to run at Funkie Munkie Scraps.

Here is a detailed color shot...

Remember you can scroll down to "the deets" to read the colors used for this image. You can also double click any of the images to open them larger and reeeeeally see the detail. :)

Here's a few other detail shots... i'll keep them smaller cause you may not care, but you can still double click em to open them larger!

You might have almost missed my sentiment. It's reeeeeally small! Ok, it's not THAT small. it's about an inch. Are you puzzled at where that came from? It's actually just a portion of the Made with Love By stamp thats comes in the mini made with love set. I simply used a marker to make sure only the words i wanted were inked up and then cut it out with the smallest circle in the nestie set. A punch would have probably been easier. hahaha.

If you want to play along in the challenge, go on over to Paper Makeup Stamps and link up your card! And remember if you are uploading to a public gallery to use the keywords PMS, Paper Makeup Stamps and M4TW13!
