I'm sharing another project that I did awhile ago for my daughter's Birthday... my daughter who LOVES purple!
I had a load of fun colouring my unicorn I call "Mystic". Mystic is a rubber stamp found at Whimsy HERE. I had to study horse musculature for awhile before I knew where to put the proper shading. It isn't necessary to put that in when you colour an image like this. I just do it because I love the challenge, and the results when I get it right. :-)
Copic colours on Mystic are:
On body and mane/hair:
BV000, 00, 01,
C00, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,
E40, 50, 51,
B0000, 00, 02
On background I used a lot of the above colours except for the Y's and E's and also added:
BV BV04, 17, 23, 25, 29,
I added lots of glitter to the mane and tail as you can see in the photo. Here's a piccy of the whole card:
HERE. I used a Whimsy Shapeology die for the ticket and that can be found HERE. I just love Ann's sentiment sets. They make adding sentiments a no brainer, esp because they often have their own little shape or frame around them. She has matching dies for the ticket sentiments too, and for the circle ones, they match the popular dies on the market so they're easy peasy too. :-)
If you haven't seen the Whimsy magazine yet, I urge you not to wait any longer. Its just jam packed with card making goodness, samples from the DT, tutorials and inspiration. Best of all, it is FREE. This card was featured in their second edition. You can view Issue 2 of the magazine by clicking on THIS LINK. If you want to see the very first issue, click on THIS LINK.
Also in the news today, there's a whole new release at Whimsy! This month the store is offering 10% off the price of all the new release stamps! For more details go to Denise's blog here and she'll tell you all about it. I've got three new images in the mix - two new fall fairies, and Bart the dragon playing football. Probably better if I show instead of tell, so here you go:
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Its cool out but the sun was shining most of the day. It was fun to play in the yard with my dogs and just enjoy a break out there. Happy Fall y'all! Hugz!
