I’m back using
Annie Special Delivery from Stamp Anniething and today my challenge was to color the face in a non-traditional manner. This was a difficult one for me and I’ve been mulling it over for a week or two. Then with inspiration from Annabel’s My Neighbor project, I took the leap and gave it a try. I recorded it and uploaded it to my YouTube channel – you can access the video below or HERE. This is what I came up with …
While coloring this one, I sketched out a few other ideas for faces and this one seemed to fit the best. I tilted the eyes a little which allowed enough room for a nose to fit in without feeling crowded. There are some things I would change for the next time but overall I think the challenge came out well. Below you can see the original stamp with the results.
The background is from Sandy Allnock named Stay Home Stay Safe. (Currently a freebie.) I combined the two images together, flipped one and scaled them down to fit on one card. The signs were strategically hidden behind the character to make this an all purpose background. I imagine this girl lives in the metropolis and walking home from school.
The character was cut out and popped on the background with foam tape which helps her stand out as the focal point. The rest of the card was kept simple and I used some Nuvo Crystal Drops for texture on the windows, flowers on her satchel and the sun on the envelope. Subtle in the photographs but you can’t help run your fingers across it in real life.
