Card for rafaela
The girl is Mo Manning / Penny Black stamp Urchin with Bird that i colored with crayola as part of self challenge.
Crayola is a color pencil that i owned, i know its children’s school grade and i never realized that it can be quite astounding result for just using crayola 24 colors. (i used baby oil / mineral oil and q-tip to blend)
The dog is my hand-draw, referencing my friend’s Shiba dog, her name is Sasha. Sasha is a black shiba (kuroshiba) who lives in HK, with 3 other shiba sisters. It was also a self challenge to make this shiba drawing and coloring. I colored with crayola also, this was one of my first series of trial using crayola color pencils.
For this card’s background, I masked the bottom with a random curvy torn paper. Positioned the paper in Misti, then I stamped PB snowy grove with Versamark, i used white emboss and heat set.
For coloring, i did water color by wet and wet method. I wet all the white emboss area with generous water. I dripped diluted Ranger distress reinker chipped sapphire starting with bottom, and let water set the blend. If water is too much and the ink/water goes to undesired area, pat dry with tissue. Keep repeating this until you get the effect you want.
And on the top of i dripped a little tint of distress reinker black soot.
Let it dry naturally, do not heat set as it will leave undesired watermark, unless that’s the effect u ‘d like, but for me, i leave it air dry.
