Another week is gone but there is another great challenge at For Fun Challenges blog this week. For this challenge you can use your favorite technique to colour the image on your card. As I love to experiment with techniques I decided on colour pencils and OMS (odourless mineral spirits). You can see how this technique is done by watching a video clip by Gina K “Coloring with Colored Pencils and OMS”
I used my favourite rubber stamp for this card as it brings back memories of my childhood in the early 1960’s. My mum made all our clothes herself and dressed us up for special occasions in the most amazing dresses with lots of frills, lace and bows. All the patterns that she used were from the Australian Home Journal to which she was a subscriber for many years. What a wonderful and blessed childhood we had. I coloured the little girls dresses with shades of pink and applied the OMS with a paper stump to get the smooth shades. Their arms and faces were coloured with a watercolour pencil as it was too small to use the OMS technique. The bows and frills on the dresses and the flowers on the hats were done with a pink Tombow pen.
I am entering my card for the following challenges:
I used the following:
- White and maroon cardstock
- Brenda Walton Madeline Wild Roses scrapbook paper
