Well my most of my first day off work has just flown by! But I've been busy after my little lay in to catch up on some much needed sleep.
I've been working on this card for a while now, she was going to be for a DT commission, but then I realised I'd completely messed up because it needed to use a rubber stamp and this was a digi, so then I had to super rush stuff to get it finished in time.....but that's a whole other story.
Anyway, I had this Saturated Canary image all coloured up and had even chosen papers, since I like to colour to match paper normally. But looking through my upcoming work, I have nothing she really fits, so I've been working on her slowly, 30 mins here, 15 there, and this morning with a bit of spare time on my hands I finished her off.
I thought that as the image is called Hipster, I'd go ahead and theme the entire card, so I chose very 70's looking papers and colours, and also decided to add the word 'groovy' to the card. I made the little scrabble type tiles from the 'windows' of the lovely view die. The lovely view die? Well viewmasters were a very 70's toy ;)
I coloured her with a mix of Distress Ink and Spectrum Aquatint markers.
Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Spun Sugar
Hair: Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, (Blossom & Rose Pink SP AQ).
Outfit: Antique Linen, Picked Raspberry,Spun Sugar, (Marigold, Jasmine & Rose Pink SP AQ)
I finished off with some psychedelic swirls and some lovely goodies from The Ribbon Girl.
I kept the inside quite simple as there was so much going on at the front!
All the rest from stash (also known as I can't remember exactly where I got them from and don't have links :P )
That's all from me today, my daughter is coming to visit tomorrow for a few days, but I will try my best to get round some blogs befor then. Enjoy the rest of your day, and as our little Hipster would say 'don't let the man grind you down!'. Oh and apologies if you have the Simon and Garfunkel song rattling around in your head all evening now! :) xx
