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