Tia's Tips: It can be a challenge to "color" an image to appear white/clear. Having completed some holiday cards with snow led me to today's challenge-DIAMONDS!
The Paper Shelter Card Challenge
#581: Something Beginning with F
Digital Image: Best Friends
The New Year is here and time to get those creative juices flowing and USE some of the new goodies you acquired over the holiday!
Up for grabs at The Paper Shelter is our usual fantastic prize! Our winner will win a $30 store gift certificate- if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (such as the pre-colored image, the black and white digi, or the digital paper that comes in the set). Or win 3 digis of your choice, if you've used images from another brand. This is a win-win! Plus, you can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them. Good Luck!!!
Details On Today's Card:
I have realized that The Paper Shelter images are so full of fabulous detail, that I tend to print my images rather large and then create larger cards because of it!
I have again created a 5.50 x 5.50inch card! Oh well, it's FABULOUS! LOL!
I really like to keep these images clean and simple, so the focus is on the image! I used a similar coloring technique for snow as I did on my diamonds.
Copic Colors: RV000; BV31; and B00
I couldn't resist using some Wink-of-Stella on the diamond tops and in the corners of her eyeshadow.
I played up the diamond theme with diamond glitter paper. And if you've ever seen Marilyn Monroe in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", I had to accent with hot-pink.
I even found some diamond accents in my stash to frame my handwritten title.
This was such a fun, quick make! And will be a great card for one of my friends too!
Do you think this was a bit of a cheat using FRIEND, as my "Something Beginning with F" card? LOL! You'll have to let me know in your comments!
