Our lovely Diva Janette is hosting today's challenge over at the High Hopes Blog! Her challenge is to use lots of circles on your card! Her card (posted on her blog as well as on the HH blog) displays the two stamps that Tina and Bethany will give away in a draw next weekend! If you choose to join in the challenge, just make sure you post a link to your creation onto the High Hopes Blog to be eligible for the draw!
Choose any form of circle you wish; you can use circle templates, circles in the form of dotted DP, you can draw circles, stamp circles, any way you can think of to add circles to your project!
I stamped circles all over the blue bg paper using a plastic screw on top from a small jar! One end of the top had a smaller circle and the other end had a bigger one. I just kept dabbing it onto my White Craft Ink pad and stamping circles randomly all over the page. I love how it turned out!
I stamped She-baa Sheep onto Manga Drawing Pad paper by Canson in Memento Tuxedo Black ink by Tsukeneko, and colored her with Copics.
If you look at the close up pic below you can see that I made tiny circular swirly lines with the marker to mimic a woolly texture. I did this will all the greys I used (see pic further down the post for the color list). I left a lot of areas very light where I wanted highlights to show, but I didn't want them white, as I don't think a black sheep would have pure white highlights. I used the lightest shades of grey for this effect. Note: I did not use the blender pen at all on the wool. This would have blurred the little swirly lines I had made and I wanted them to show.
I did however leave areas white on the pink bow and blended around them with the blender pen so the pink would sort of melt into the white. Same idea on the bell as well.
