For this project, my daughter rolled the dice and selected a stamp an older stamp from the shelves. Literally, we have two dice that help us pick from my stash and use some of my old favorites. This one is Dare to Dream by Whiff of Joy.
Here are the supplies used on my card:

I guess it’s time to get ready for all those Valentine projects and images. So this is to help me get into the mood. This is Love is in the Air from Whiff of Joy. I was sad to see Katharina (Whiff of Joy) close up shop. 😦 I’m sure it was a tough decision and I wish her and her family the best of health and love.
I was able to pick up a few extra supplies at the last minute including the ones I used on this card. This was one of the “out of the box” project I created when I opened my package. It felt nice to use what I purchased. He he he

The challenge this go around over at Make it Colorful is to “Color White” and even though I’m in the midst of coloring Christmas cards, I wanted to color something other than snow. So the image I’ve selected is Confirmand Melinda from Whiff of Joy and I’ve kept the card one layered and simple.
The border idea was inspiration taken from Deconstructing Jen as she always has the best one layer cards! To recreate the idea, I used a black pen to draw the border. Then I’ve placed a chippies in the upper corner and a Whiff of Joy miscellaneous sentiment in the lower corner. I also did a little bit of shading on the inside border to give it more interest.
For the white challenge, I used three different tones to create the white. The dress uses E40, E41 and E42 to create an antique look; the wings were colored with T3, T2 and T0 for a soft pure look; and finally the background has W2, W1, W0 and W00 to help “ground” it to the card. It was a fun to concentrate on the coloring this time than the card making. 😀 Make sure you come back later today as I’ll have another project up!
One downfall to coloring so many samples for the Sheer Clothing challenge is that I have to make as many projects. ;D So this is my last image placed on a mini journal page… Ben in the Rain by Whiff of Joy. In the corner I had to use a chippie from the Butterfly Swirls from Make it Crafty, of course. 😀
For the challenge, the transparent parts that I created was the entire coat plus the umbrella top. I first penciled in the jeans, shirt, arms, chin and hair, plus I added a wire frame for the umbrella so the transparency would show up better. I practically erased it to nothing and let my memory help me with the lines then I colored in those area trying to make them a little lighter than the exposed sides. Finally, I used a little yellow and lightly colored in the coat and umbrella keeping most of the colors on the edges where possible.
