My card today features an awesome image from Robyn's Fetish, "Apples in a Basket"
Here's a pic for you to check out :
The card measures 4 3/4" x 5 1/4" and uses a sheet of craft card stock for the base. To add a little interest to the card base, I stamped some fall leaves using my VersaMark ink. For my card layer, I cut a piece of chevron paper at 4" x 4 !/2" from The Paper Studio Chevron paper pad.
Next I moved on to the image, coloring it in with my alcohol markers.
Here's a rundown of the colors I used:
-Apples- Y15, R14, R17, R27, Y00, Y13
-Basket- E99, E29
-Bow- R14, R17, R27, E74
-Sky & Grass- B00, B12, G43, G4
To get a more realistic feel to the image, I referenced a photo I found on Google.
So, by adding the Y15 as my base color and then adding the R14, R17, R27 in certain areas, I was able to achieve a more realistic look to the apple.
I approached the coloring of the basket in much the same way, by adding lines using my E29 and then softening it with my E99.
For the sky and the grass, I laid down my lightest base color, B00, G43, and then adding my darker shades, B12, G46, to add texture and shading.
I then trimmed the image panel down to 3 3/4" x 4 1/8" and adhered it to the card.
Finally, I added my sentiment, "For You" with some twine tied in a bow.
And voila! Card complete!
I hope you all enjoyed this card for today!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day! :)
