Friendship Tattoos

Grab your Spectrum Noir coloring tools and some stamps...because it's time for our next challenge!

Spectrum Noir September Monthly Challenge: Friendships

I love stamping and coloring scene cards. This card design was SO MUCH FUN! The sentiment was perfect for the friendship theme! I colored everything with my Spectrum Noir Markers...then came in and added shading with a Spectrum Noir Colored Pencil 120 (black). It's amazing how much depth and dimension you can get by adding a little colored pencil over the markers.

With a little stamp masking...and a lot of fun card came together so cool!  All the stamps are from Art Impressions. I have just a "few" of 'em! *wink* *wink*  I also used the Tim Holtz Brick Wall die which turned out awesome. I diecut Red Chalkboard Cardstock -- sponged on some Black Soot Distress Ink -- then very lightly colored on some 001 (white) pencil. It's hard to see in the picture...but I added black rhinestones along the top and bottom edges of the brick wall -- plus 1 on the dog collar.

The window awning is cut out and popped up. The dog and the front of the easel street sign are cut out and adhered flat. All other images were stamped directly on the paper and colored.
