I am super excited to bring you my DT inspiration for the Slinky Tart Blog today, just because I adore the image I chose to use and have no idea how I have not coloured her before! My bad definitely...she is just gorgeous and a dream to colour!
So, as my DT inspiration, I present...
|Cat Sixx in all her glory...she really is rockin it!|
|I really did use the scraps this time on the insert! But it looked really cool!|
I coloured the image with my Copic alcohol markers (I promise I will start to write down the colours soon! I am still colouring as a learning curve and change markers so much that it makes it harder to write down lol).
My backing papers are from Graphic 45 (oh my they are gorgeous to touch, and rich colours too).
I die cut with a Tonic scalloped squares die set, and started with the biggest and worked down the die's for the layers.
The background to the image, and randomly over the backing paper, I added Tim Holtz distress inks (Worn Lipstick and Broken China) using a make up sponge.
The sentiment is from Bee Crafty Stamps and is a part of their Banksy inspired range (its gorgeous!), stamped onto waste from the backing papers and then chopped up. I have added some more appropriate words from an old thesaurus.
Lastly, paper-clips! this time they are from the stationary range in Ikea (curtsey of my eldest daughters recent trip there).
Here's the close ups:
|I love how her hair turned out!|
|A word popped in the speech bubble...|
|A little dimension from rolling the edges of the small squares|
|Colour matching across the image and the papers...|
|A little dimension from the words....|
