I have a couple of cards to share with you today, that I made using my brand spankin' new rubber release "Hippie Birthday, Man" for Whimsy Stamps! (for a peek at all my latest rubber images, follow this LINK). I was born in the sixties, and although I was really young for most of it, I do remember "Flower Power", the long hair, bell-bottoms and bandanas! I coloured both images with Copics, but, I wanted to see what I'd get by using coloured pencil on top to continue the blending. The first one (purple and green background paper) has the coloured pencil added on top of the Copics. The second one (green and blue bg ppr) has no coloured pencil. The only blatant difference I see is on the bird's chest, and I don't think it makes a whole lot of difference on this particular image. Anyway, just experimenting with colour mediums. Experimentation is how you grow as an artist!
Both of these cards went to friends who like to make cards with me. I hope they enjoy them!
