Welcome! Still doing my part to entice Spring to come--at least that's what I'm hoping for! I usually start a card with the focal image; but on this card, I had played with my Spellbinders Diamond Effects die template set a few days ago, loving the simplicity of white on white. I laid it aside because I wasn't sure what I wanted to use for a focal image. Then I got a little Taylored Expressions box in the mail, and I found my focal image--the TE Mixed Blooms image.
These are the Copic markers that I used for the leaves and the spiky purple flowers. . . No, I'm not going to embarrass myself by trying to assign a name to all of these flowers.
So, I'm venturing a guess that these are roses. I chose a cool pink (Copic R80's) for them. The BG90's were for the vase/can, and the BV's were for shadows, mostly on the can edges.
And here I've added the yellow blossoms as well as more purple ones. I deepened the colors in a few places after I fussy-cut the image though, so this wasn't quite the end. (I did not add any cast shadows at the base of the can because I knew that I was cutting the image out.)
Here's a close-up, darkened areas included. I chose to airbrush a Copic YR31 marker in the oval part of the background to make all of those purples pop against the background. I tried tying two different white bows on the card front and cut both of them off since they seemed to detract rather than enhance. It might need a tiny tag somewhere though. What do you think?
That's it for today. Thanks for visiting,
