Topic: Digital Projects
I sat down to work with three patriotic digital images and had a lot of fun with them.
First up is the stitched star. I used markers in a sketchy style and added a variety of Stickles and Liquid Pearls to enhance the stripes and the stars. This panel was rounded and backed with matching blue. I created a card base from blue star cardstock and layered with a red stripe and a strip of gold tissue tape.
I like how simple it is.
Next was this little guy hugging his bunny. I got a new set of markers that are all flesh tones. There are two shades in several color ranges that allow for selection in how pink/peach/gold the skin will be. For the baby I decided to go very pink.
I used a Nestability die to cut the image, allowing it to cut off the edges of the picture. Layering with the same colors, each banded in black, makes for a very graphic presentation. I trimmed the end of the text stamp (also a digital stamp) into a flag shape and popped it up on foam tape.
Finally, I colored up this little soldier and flag. It is such a large image that it fills up a good deal of the card. I rounded two colors to pull it back in a bit. By backing with red and banding in the bright blue it left me wanting to see some of the gold from the pole and the uniform blue so I punched some stars, added some faux stitching with a pen and attached them in a scatter.I also tied some neutral scrapper's floss around the end of the greeting banner.
The buttons, belt buckle, hat band, and environmental stars have gold Stickles. The stars on the flag have silver Stickles.
