Hey Everyone!! I hope your day is off to a great start! For today's post, I have a unique style of card I created for the Jiggery Makery blog.
Adele has been working on some vintage inspired images for the Jiggery Makery Etsy shop and for this project I used the beautiful "Penelope" digi.
I will be featuring another vintage digi on my blog next week, so stay tuned for that.
This card is a lot different color wise, then what I normally do and the inspiration came from hubby's suggestion.
Originally, I wanted to do a series of black and white photos with the image in full color.
When I told hubby of my idea, he suggested I do a pop art theme ala Warhol.
So after researching his pop art prints, I came across his Marilyn Monroe one.
I thought the colors would work with the alcohol markers I had.
So after printing the full image, I went back to crop the image and made a few copies of just her face.
Hubby then worked his computer skills magic to enlarge the images, add texture to the backgrounds and stack them.
In the end, I think the card turned out nice but I'll let you decide that for yourself.
Here's the pic for you to check out:
I used white card stock for the card base to create an A2 size card.
The pop art panel measures, 3 1/4 x 5 1/4" an I used my alcohol markers to color it in.
I used the Marilyn Monroe print to choose the colors for this image.
Here's a quick rundown:
-Top Left Panel- IB1, Y08, Rambunctious Red, Dusky Pink
-Bottom Left Panel- Fandango Pink, LY2, Blue Skies Blue, Blush
-Top Right Panel- Rambunctious Red, Y08, Summer Melon, IB1, Blue Skies Blue, Blush, R20
-Bottom Right Panel- IB1, Blue Skies Blue, R20, Y08,
I then went in with my fine tip black marker to add shading to the face, hair and neckline.
With the coloring complete, I fussy cut the panel out and backed it on a sheet of black and then white card stocks.
I used my ATG gun to adhere it to the card base.
With the background complete, I set to work on the image.
I printed the full image onto a sheet of white card stock and used my alcohol markers to color her in.
Here's the rundown of the colors I used:
-Skin_ Blush, Dusky Pink, R20
-Hair- Tan, Burnt Sienna, Cinnamon
_-Shoes- C01, C03
For the dress, I used a sheet of Prima, "Something Blue" paper to paper piece the dress onto the image.
I added some shading with my C01 and C03 markers.
I used my white gel pen to emphasize the polka dot pattern and added some lace trim along the bottom.
I used Stickles to add some shimmer to the dress and a pink pearl on the waistline.
I then fussy cut her out and used foam tape to attach her to the card.
And voila!! Card complete!!
I hope you enjoyed this project for today!!
This card is the 200th project I have posted on my blog!
I never thought that I would even reach 200 posts, let alone still be at this blogging thing.
