Good morning can you believe its nearly the end of January ... wherever did those days fly off too?
Today at the Besties UK blog we are having a new challenge in conjunction with a blog hop. The theme for this is ALL ABOUT THE HAIR… - your entry to the challenge must contain a Bestie Image
My project for this theme is a simple card to showcase the beautiful bestie (IMG799). I chose this image because of her Rapunzel hairstyle reminded me of the fairy story I used to read to my daughter .
I chose prismacolor pencils to colour the image makes a nice change from Copics although I do like to mix the medias sometimes for a different effect.
Prismacolor pencils have lovely smooth soft leads which blend seamlessly on their own or with solvents, I chose not to use any solvents on this project
Card 5 x7 using Centura pearl
Purple - Coredinations
Embossed Layer - Centura Pearl
Grand decorated ovals - Spellbinders
Graduated pearls - kaiser craft
I folded and cut a piece of centura pearl card to make a base card 7 x 5 inches (17.8 x 12.7cm), then I cut a piece of purple card 17 x 12cm and used the corner punch to round the corners.
I then cut a piece of Centura pearl 16.5 x 11.5cm and embossed using the Teresa Collins Embossing folder Regency and rounded the corners with the punch. This was then layered onto the card.
I applied 5 graduated pearls to the top right and bottom left corners of the card and one large pearl on the other corners to balance the card. I used the grand decorated ovals to cut the purple oval and then embossed the die too for more dimension.
I used grand ovals from spellbinders to cut out my printed image prior to colouring.
The colours I used were:-
Tuscan red - pc937
Mahogany red - pc1029
Chestnut - pc1081
Dark purple - pc931
Sienna beige - pc1080
Light peach - pc927
Peach - pc939
Dark Purple - pc931 - lips
Process red - pc994
Shoes, dress, bows-
Violet - pc932
Dionazine purple hue - pc132
Parma violet - pc1008
