Extreme Color Placement

You know how I have been having loads of fun with color placement on the LMMS images, by giving them noses and mouths and such.  Well this is how I roll....I went from regular creative color placement to extreme color placement (ECP).  I did not mess with the regular image but rather placed color as I saw fit to change up this little fairy leaving all lines as they were.   I hope you can appreciate this form of artwork and hope you will give it a try using an image of your choice.




I used some of the NEW MakeItCrafty elements to complete the card.
Tree (on its side)
Grass

The image is by Digital Pencil 2 and can be found HERE
I hope you love her as much as I do in both forms!

Copic Colors....

Little Miss Hood


I thought I would play with merging a few images.  I chose two from MakeItCrafty and put them into photoshop and played around.  I love that MIC gives the images to you in .png form so I can combine images.  I removed the rainbow and just left the dandelions from one image.  I copied a second dandelion and flipped it to give a bottom border.  I then added Little Miss Hood to the background.  
Then I colored colored colored!  When I was completely done I used acrylic white paint to make the dandelions.  I then added Stampendous Chunky white over them to give them dimension.  LURV!

A Little Christmas Cheer...for Mwah!

How about placing a $10.00 or over order of Digi's from Little Miss Muffet Stamps and getting this image I colored for FREE (of course yours will be black and white and YOU will have to color)?  I say I have been a good girl and deserve it!!

Here is the sweetest freebie all colored up.

I am sure you know I did a little creative color placement right?  I have been having a fun time playing with these images and adding features.  This company is so kind to let us do this and encourages it.  Yay to LMMS!  Thank you!  Now back to playing!


Colors coming on soon on tags...but thought I would share the card and coupon...what a tease right?

**Please note that I color using the lightest color first, dark, medium and back to light. It is okay to not blend out your colors when doing hair as you want the texture.  Fine flicks are better then fat flicks.  Don't be afraid to leave white paper showing.

I Wuv U!

Yesterday while waiting for resin to dry I got to do a bit of playing.  I played around with creative color placement on Lydie's face, adding a nose, eyes, and mouth.  I read through Forgotten Scraps amazing tutorial and everything just clicked!  I am very grateful when people share their talents with others as a way to improve peoples abilities. 

A true artist creates for the pleasure of others, and shares their knowledge to help others with what they create!  - Jenn Dove

I did toss this little card into the LMMS Challenge "framed"  I don't know if it will fly using a mat as a frame but what the heck...worth a try :)

I Challenge You!

Its getting closer to Christmas so it is very appropriate to use the traditional red and green don't you think?  Make It Crafty is carrying on the tradition of fun challenges on the CHALLENGE BLOG HERE and this one is "red/green" for the easy challenge and for those that want to challenge them self..."texture" for the hard challenge.  Or you can combine them like I chose to do.  I used this adorable image "Jessica's Teddy Bear" and colored her up...plus used 4 different texture styles.   Can you name all the different ways I textured?

Holiday Greetings...In Yo Face!

Stampendous has gotten together with Clearsnap this week for some fun.  This was a little outside my comfort zone (yes, i actually have one).  I decided to play with the Colorbox Paintbox pigment and a water brush to create this snowy fun image by Stampendous.  I finally got into the groove and had a hard time stopping.

 I first stamped with Colorbox Archival "Seattle Sky" gray dye ink pad.  Then I took my water brush and robbed it on the Paintbox ink pad and "watercolored in the image.  As you know if you are used to coloring with copics it isn't going to be as vivid, but I like the soft look.  After I finished coloring it in I got ready to get messy.
I sprinkled Stampendous Chunky white embossing enamel on the image and heated from underneath.  After some card sewing I placed the image on the card and started to decorate with hand dyed cheese cloth, buttons and pearls.  Next I took some adhesive and added Purple Color Fragments, Fuchsia glass glitter and Halo glitter.  Did I mention I didn't want to stop?

This is about the only snow we see in Phoenix Arizona...LOL.  Not too pleased.  Good thing it didn't happen in my lap and I was able to put it back in my jar.  I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my Chunky White!  Stampendous Image "cling Snowball Fight" can be found HERE

Join us on the hop and see all the lovely creations.  If you comment along the way i am sure goodies are possibly in your future.  Have fun!!
