Winter Wishes Woman's head hand coloured square card

Posted on


Hi Craft addicts!

I hope you all had a great weekend and the days ahead will be good ones!!

I really enjoyed making this card and I hope you will too!

GC 2019 - Winter Wishes - Girl Head and shoulders hand coloured using penci

How I made this card:-

  • I first of all stamped the frame that comes in the Winter Stamp Collection from Sheena Douglass (from Create & Craft) onto some white stamping card - I used a Black ink - either Gina K Amalgam ink, Memento or Tonic ink will do as they all can cope with a mix of water/solvent based inks.
  • I then stamped the girl in the bottom left hand corner, trying to make her appear as if she is coming out of the sea again using the same ink.
  • I coloured her in using Chameleon pencils, trying to make the skin tones as realistic as possible.
  • Once I was happy with it, I then used various shades of blue pencils to create the background.
  • I also used a green alcohol pen to colour the edge of the frame and then edged it with a black alcohol marker.
  • I used one of the sentiments in the set (Winter Wishes) and stamped it twice in opposite corners using the same black ink.
  • I then used a Blue Altenew ink pad to add the swirly/flourish in the remaining corners.
  • Finally, I added the topper to the card using thin foam pads.
