Do you always colour the images as they were when you bought them? Or do you dare to experiment? To crop, resize and make something a bit different? Christy of Tiddly Inks asked a question that (perhaps unintentionally, haha) got me thinking a bit outside the box. I quickly made a few frames in Photoshop using the Fairy Sunny Day stamp to show what I was thinking and was instantly inspired to make a card with it.
My idea was to have several photos in a film strip type style. I aligned her slightly different in each rectangle and then cropped off what I didn’t need. For the final rectangle I zoomed in a little bit to get her nice and close. As I really enjoyed this, you will probably see me do this again!
So what is the most difficult part about using the same image several times?! Trying to colour it somewhat similar in all versions, hahaha. This is the first time I’ve coloured the same image repeatedly for one card! The hair was the most interesting! Let’s see the result.
Isn’t the chipboard perfect for this? Make it Crafty chipboards are great. I don’t know why I took so long to acquire some! I coloured it with the same colours I did her dress and then printed the sentiment directly onto the card.
Another photo, of course. Isn’t Wryn the cutest?!
Copics used: (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, (skin) E000, E00, E04, E21, (dress) B000, B32, B34, B37, (wings) RV00, RV02, RV04, (flowers) R24, R59, Y04, Y19, YG63, YG67, (sky) B000, B32 + blender
Maybe you’d like to try to make one as well? If you don’t know how to do the frames to put the stamps in, you can use the one I made. Click on the images to get the full size and then right click to save them to your computer. The first one is a .png with a transparent background and the second is a .jpg with a white background.
I would love it if you gave me credit and linked to my site if you decide to use one of them. Please don’t share the images, but direct people here instead. 🙂
