This week's challenge at My Heart Pieces is 'Use Black'. I wanted to use an image for boys this time around, and so I used 'Paint Boy'. I had fun with him and made a couple extra (as usual!). I coloured all three of them with my watercolour crayons and used my black Sakura Glaze pen to give the black paint an extra shine.
I like shimmer and glossy texture and used both on this card, along with my Spellbinders Labels 8. Some Magenta mesh paper as a background and an Arrow Tab by Creative Imaginations.
This next one I used an old technique called 'spot light'. Basically you pick an area to colour in and leave the rest uncoloured. I used Spellbinders 11 to cut out the coloured area. I popped it up a bit as well to make it stand out more. Just used a regular corner rounder for this. I added a scrap ribbon I found and of course a paint chip!
Next up is a 5x5 card made with a piece of Autumn Leaves Pretty Poppy Paper. I am a paper horder and have tried to find uses for the tons of paper I have! I used my Spelbinder Octagon Small and large shapes for this one.
