For my freebie, I am giving you this classic image for your card making along with a how- to for the card!
I printed two of these images on 80# Heavenly white paper -wonderful for alcohol marker coloring and Distress Inks!
Right click and save for your card making. This is a masters engraving I adapted for card making.
My pen coloring selection. I normally use Spectrum Noir at home and Touch Fives for travel
I did not use a lot of different colors for this card, but I did use a lot of ink, I was looking for a very saturated look.
I colored this card as I normally would. Colored the little girl separately, fussy cut her and added her to the main body of the card with dimensional tape. The sky was colored with 1 shade of blue and then I worked in blending solution to give it a more natural mottled look. After the paper dried (a few minutes) I began to dab in a little yellow, First on the back side and then on the front. By coloring the back first it gave a 'sun through the clouds' look I also edged the card with chipped sapphire.
This paper really works well for blending color!
I layered the focal image on Silver Ore paper
And finished by mounting on Heavenly White 120# base weight paper.
This paper makes a beautiful crease!
