Tiddly Inks Challenge # 44 - Celebrate with us! Red, Black & White (also Tue Morning #87)
I decided that I would try this a 2 challenges and go with Tuesday Morning Sketches.
I was very happy with how this card turned out, but I still have a long way to go to master black hair. I am also still learning a lot about Copic markers. I did get new paper delivered today after doing this that might make it easier to blend. Sometimes I notice on the paper I use right now that it separates and leaves it a little blotchy.
I started like I do every week trying to figure out what Tiddly Inks digital art to use. Then I realized I needed to make my daughter a birthday card for a friend. So when I saw Take A Bow I knew this was the one. The little girl that this card was for is Asian and so I knew that the black, white and red would work awesome. I used Copic markers to color in and on the skin tone I used YR family so that it gave a little more yellowish skin. It worked perfect. I cut out my shapes with my spell binders, which are also new to me and boy do I really like them. Always have to add a little bling, so some clear/white gems were needed and a black ribbon with white dashes completed the bottom. Adding just a few gems on top of it. I asked my daughter what she wanted me to use below the picture, flowers or buttons. She decided she liked the buttons, but unfortunately I only had 1 of the flower buttons and so I had pulled out 2 other white buttons and 2 red buttons. As you see my daughter decided on the red. I ended my card with a few white highlights.
I do hope that this card brings you the joy that it brought me working on it.
