My TGF Guest Monday #2

Hi! TGF July Guest Suzanne here with a new card and a simple technique to share with you!

I’m sure that I’m not the only person who struggles sometimes with masculine cards, so I wanted to make one to share using Oliver from the new “Lovey Dovey” Oliver & Amelia set…

When I colored Oliver to coordinate with the paper, I thought that his cap and overalls would look great with a denim texture. It’s easy to create one, especially if you’re coloring with alcohol based markers, like Copics. (If you know of a way to create texture with another coloring medium, I’d love to hear about it!)

After I colored in those parts, and after the image was fully dry, I spritzed some colorless blender solution on a scrap of denim fabric and pressed it over both the hat and overalls. Once the solution starts to dry, you’ll see the texture appear!

It’s a simple technique that I picked up in a Copic class, and since then, I’ve had fun trying out different textures on my colored images!

Here’s a closeup of the hat:

Pretty cool, right?

I’ll be back again next Monday to share a new Greeting Farm card with you! I hope you’ll join in on the challenges and fun things that are coming up on the TGF blog and at TGF’s Splitcoast forum!

Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my card! Hope you have a wonderful week!
