Hello friends! Happy Friday! I’m happy for the weekend to get here, how about you?! The weather has started to cool down slightly and it’s so nice to have that air conditioning turned off for a change!
Today I’m super excited to share with you some really fun and adorable new image set that Digi Doodle Studios has come out with from the brand new “Pairables” Collection! The set that I’m sharing today is adorable and so fun to mix and match images with! Check out the two cards I made with it:
I absolutely had so much fun creating a little scene with the images and then printing them out for coloring and making cards with! All of the images that I’ve used here come from the new Digi Doodle Studios Charming Enchanters Wizard Pairables Digital Stamp Set and I believe that I’ve probably used most of the images from the set on these two cards here.
For this particular card, I’ve used my computer to arrange the stars from the wizard’s wand and the sentiment how I want them placed and then printed it out twice. One I printed on Copic blending card and another image printed out on Neenah Solar White cardstock so that I can do the ink blended background on it.
Here’s a closer view of the coloring details on the wizard. You can see that he has a bit of a “glow” about him. So after I colored him in with my Copic markers, I decided that I could use a yellow color pencil to add just a bit of glow to certain parts of the image. I’ve then used gel pens to color in other detailed portions of the image and a white gel pen for the stars in the background as well. I’ve tried to capture a little bit of that stunning shimmer for the background, but of course it doesn’t show up as great as it is in real life!
He was fussy cut out and placed over the ink blended background that I’ve made.
Since my last video on the ink blending, I’ve had a few more questions about it, so I thought I’d share a more in-depth look into it. To see a video of how I’ve created the background on this “wizard” card, I’ve made a video to show in detail how I’ve done it with a few tips and tricks along the way. So check it out below or watch it on You Tube by CLICKING HERE.
I hope that this helps a little more on explaining how I achieved the look for ink blending backgrounds. I know that I’ve had people ask me to do a video on another background I’ve made on another card, so perhaps I will share another video on that later.
If you do have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment here or on You Tube or contact me and let me know! If you have other suggestions, I’d always love to hear that too!
Here’s the other card that I’ve made using the same Charming Enchanters Wizard Pairables Digital Stamp Set. Again, I’ve arranged and sized the images how I wanted them on my computer, printed it out just the same as above and fussy cut out all of the colored images to place over my background.
I’ve mounted the image panel over a piece of purple cardstock and then placed it over a top folding 5″ square black card base. I’ve used a piece of ribbon to run behind the layered image panel and then added some fun decorative metal corners on it.
For this card on the background, I didn’t distress it with water, I just left it ink blended.
Here’s an up-close look at the coloring I’ve done on the image. You can see again that I’ve used my gel pens to color in the tiny details like the stars on her hat, the bubbles from her couldren, the bookmarker and the tiny nail on the wall.
To get the glow on the images, I’ve taken a green colored pencil and added it in the places that I thought her green magic potion would glow from.
