BLOGGERS CHALLENGE - WARHOL TECHNIQUE & BLOG HOP!
This week's BLOGGERS CHALLENGE is to use the WARHOL TECHNIQUE and it is also the beginning of BLOG HOP for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. I have 2 more stamp sets being released on October 1. So be sur eto join us for the BLOG HOP and then the RELEASE PARTY on September 30. Check back here often so you can see more sneak peeks into the new sets that will be released!
My inspiration to the Warhol Challenge is right here. Personally, I am not sure how I feel about this challenge - but I did it anyways! LOL I think the card I made is cute.
I used my Copics to color Olivia the Owl from Owl Occassions and then used some accessories for her from the upcoming Owl Christmas Accessories stamp set that will be released October 1! I am still wondering where September went! LOL
Focus girl! Right? LOL
Okay - back to the coloring. I do not have a lot of Copics - so I mix a lot of my own colors. That is why I love the Copics is you can BLEND! I use the greay scale markers to add depth in color. You can mix the colors right on a pallette. But truth be known, sometimes I do not like doing the extra step so I just color over and using my Colorless Blender to mix the colors on the paper. To blend the colors, it works best to have a Matte Kote Finish type paper or your colors will not blend well.
I had these red embellishments laying around. I do not remember why I bought them, but I thought they would add a nice touch. I added a bit of glitter on the Owl's Christmas hat too. So what do you think?
Here are a few more details:
Stamp Sets: Owl Occassions, Owl's Christmas Accessories
Cardstock: Basic Black, White Matte Kote finish,
