Audrina Swinging By To Say…

Hello friend! For this project I pulled out my stash of dies to create the scenery and then colored up Audrina Swinging By Tire Swing to enjoy it. It’s been so hot this summer that I’m ready for cooler temperatures and for those autumn colors to emerge. Sigh. It will be a while for that to happen. But in the mean time, I hope you enjoy this project.

Peekaboo Backdrop Die

I started this project by building from the background forward. I knew I was going to use the Peekaboo Backdrop Die so I kept that in mind when I was placing the other elements. The top-left window features trees and the word “Hello” on top. The top-right window features stenciled clouds and the word “FRIEND” in the sky.
I colored Audrina Swinging By Tire Swing with the no-lines technique which means I stamped her in a light color. This allowed me to add a few more details such as more rope, add a nose and change her mouth. I colored her eyes the same way I did last time which seams to work out well with this style. I’ll have to try green eyes next time. 😉
The leaves were cut from mulberry paper that was already died in the autumn colors. That was so I didn’t have to worry about coloring them and they also have a bit of texture to them that is reminiscent of leaves. I chose autumn leave colors so that the tree and foreground would stand out more than the background and to keep the focal point moving around the card.

  1. Barbara, would you please specify which set of E markers you used for Audrina’s hair? i love your touches to her eyes, nose and lips. thank you, Michelle


    1. For the hair I used E23, 25, 27, 29. I didn’t do a lot of blending and even left some white areas for highlights. Once I got to the E23, I called it quits as it turned out looking well enough. 😉


  2. You’re welcome, anytime. 😀 You might enjoy watching my YouTube channel for a glimpse at my coloring style. It’s not always the best or ideal way of doing things but I get it done. LOL
