I know on my very first post here I mentioned that I like to do different styles, and I'm sure by now you will agree with me. Well today's card is another style. I've been wanting to play around with distress inks for sometime so I bought some small brushes and started to have a play and learnt some lessons along the way. One of the main differences I found with using distress inks against copics is that its difficult to create the creases in the clothes like you can with copics. However I do still love both mediums.
This super Sassy Girl is called, "Rapunzel", and she started off being lilac and turquoise blue but I added some vintage photo to the edges of her tights forgetting that I was meant to go and work on another part of the image allowing the tights to dry first, so after adding the vintage photo they kind of blended and I ended up with green tights, lol. Good job I like lilac and green.
After completing her I decided to cut her out in an oval shape using my nesties and I placed some post it notes over the nestie and image to keep the nestie in place. Don't know about you but I have had countless times of the nestie not cutting where I wanted it too on my bigshot and on the Grand Calibur. Only I had a shim on it for embossing and I forgot to remove it, so my image ended up with the post it notes being embossed onto the image. So in short these are my lessons learnt:-
1. Don't try out a new tecnique for a DT card when you don't have enough time to do another in case it goes wrong... Oops!
1. Wait for the area to dry before applying a new colour
2. Don't leave the shim in the bigshot
I followed the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and here's how it ended up.
Don't look too closely, lol.
