Mondays are always fun at Splitcoaststampers
because that means it's CAS card day!
Clean and Simple
- formerly known as One Sheet Wonders -
are actually harder for me to do :)
and use some fun dies
and add othe embellisments kinda girl!
The theme this week is: April Showers
so I chose My Favorite Things Puddle Jumper Rain or Shine.
then masking it off.
Next, I used Lawn Fawn's mermaid ink and a blender brush
to lightly ink the background.
Once that was blended, I pulled off the mask
and used my copic markers to color the image bright colors!
In hindsight, I wish I had spritzed water on the background ink
but that's probably why they say it's 20/20 - LOL!
I was inspired by my friend, Timothy, on Instagram
to color outside my norm of using peach tones.
Truthfully, I'm often shy and super conscientious about coloring
skin tones and hair!
And the reason for that is I don't think that I'm very good at it.
I try and try and I get embarrassed because it doesn't look as good
so I sort of "stick to what I know."
His IG is filled with Stamp Anniething chibis of all colors
and walks of life - from Black and Brown friends to White
and everyone in between!
AND - for this one - I did do the water spritz! :)
For that reason, I decided to *try my best* to use darker skin tones
and created the same card - twice!
I'll enter my card to Simon Says Stamp - Monday - Brights!
Thanks for stopping by!
