This card is for Julia's (aka artystamper) DDC for last week. She sent the Doubledog Dare gals a Thomas Kinkade image to create a card with. I love coloring, and I love the detail, so I couldn't wait to get started on this.
I started by coloring the image with copics. I used a black fine pen to redraw the well's lines and some of the stones so the image stood out a little. Next I covered the well with Versamark and embossed it with clear EP. I masked over the oval shape of the frame and sponged Rose Red and Summer Sun ink outwardly from the image. Then I used Flower Soft in Heather and Lilac to make all the flowers around the well look dimensional. Matted the picture several times in black and Pale Plum cardstock and the bottom layers is wallpaper. (See wallpaper chatter above!) Finally, I die cut a Nestabilities bookplate tag and punched out the Word Window shape from SU to frame the sentiment. Attached that with brads. Yeah, it took awhile, but I enjoyed getting lost in the image and seeing it come to life.
Thanks for checking in! Anne
