Christmas Rose

October 15, 2018 0 Comments

Hello and happy Monday Dare 2B Artzy friends and fans. Michelle Houghton here from to bring you a little D2BA inspiration to start your week.

This month’s D2BA challenge is “Fall” so make sure you take a few minutes and create a project celebrating fall to enter to win a fun prize!

Today though I am headed straight to the holidays! I chose to work with the Holiday Rose stamp set and my Copics as well as some of the new D2BA patterned papers. Here is a quick shot of the colors I used. Cindy made coloring easy she added cross hatching lines to show where shading should go.

Here is a close up of the rose so you can see the coloring, I added a little sparkle onto the berries as well. When coloring a stamp that has a lot of details like this one I look for sports to push pieces back and lift other’s toward the viewer. For example on the pine needles or evergreen boughs I used darker colors on the needles that are sitting to the back, further away from the viewer. This not only adds depth, it also allows the viewer to more easily too all the pieces of the image.

The card as a whole uses some of the beautiful new papers from the D2BA fall and holiday release. I added very thin borders of solid cardstock to define the edges of the busier patterned papers.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! make sure to swing by the D2BA store to check on the latest additions and come back here to the blog this week for more D2BA inspiration.
