Two cards in as many days...my life has returned to it's proper orbit ; ) Not to say this pace will continue but I am enjoying the ride while I can. I should be cleaning house to prepare for a mother in law visit but this is so much more fun!
Here's one of the images I had inked the skin yesterday:
The image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. Josh's birthday isn't until August and he'll be three so I'll have to do some last minute adjustments.
I hate the way the balloons turned out. For some reason I started bringing the red balloon to the forefront. Because red can bleed so easily the more I messed with it the worse it got. Yuck, hate them!! But, it is for a 3 year old, he wouldn't have cared if I colored them with crayons. Geesh, I'm getting lazy since these are no longer DT cards. I should've colored them first off after the skin. That's a good tip for anyone starting out with copics. Start with what you think is the most challenging, that way you don't have to chuck a completed image if you save it for last. Anyhoo, if you want to see me do balloons properly, you can check my video tutorial.
What I like about this? His pants and gramma (me) is known for her love of black and white checked floors so I had to add those in. I like the way his pup turned out too. Did you notice the lil' frog I doodled on his bib? Gosh, I can't quit!!
Here's a close up:
The chevron papers are from K & Company. The ticket is available on my freebie page. I think that's about it. Now off to clean. Do you ever feel like your house is clean enough for your mother in law? I mean she's not going to care, but I will. We'll just have to close the door to my craftroom, cleaning that would take a week!
