Hello Ai fans!
It's time for a brand new challenge here on the Art Impressions blog. Although we still have possibly quite a bit of winter where I am, we know it's beginning to warm up where some of you are. The rest of us will just have to live vicariously through your photos. For now we'll have to settle for a spring themed challenge.
No particular theme. Just feature flowers and foliage.
Before we look at our featured artist Nina's project let's announce the winner of our last challenge.
Now let's take a look at the amazing projectS Nina created for our challenge!
Hello Ai fans, Nina here and I am excited to be with you today to share my creations for our new challenege Bloom Where You're Planted. For my first card I used my favorite set Llama Set.
I stamped the Llama and the little cacti cluster four times using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and my Mini Mist. I colored them using my Copic Markers.
Yellow: Y08 Y06
Brown: E99 YR24
Greens: G09 G14 YG67 YG25 YG23
I then used my scissors to cut around all the images and backed them with different thicknesses of foam tape to give this variety of dimension.
I cut a white panel and die cut a circle in the middle and used foam tape to attach it to a very dark green panel. I then started attaching my Llama and other cactus clusters. I placed the whole panel on a light olive green panel. I then decorated with enamel dots.
I also created another card using the beautiful Friends forever Set.
I again stamped the lovely image of the girls on a Bristol smooth white paper using my Memento Tuxedo Black and my Mini Misti. I also stamped my sentiment from the same set and die cut the panel with square stitched does.
I colored them with Copic markers as well as Spectrum Noir Markers. My color palette came from the floral pattern of a paper from the new Valentine's paper pack. I will create my background from that paper by the end.
Browns: E29 E27 E25
Greys: C2 C1
Red Brown: E19 E07
Yellow Brown: E99 YR24
Spectrum Noir Shades:
Greens: VB2 VB5
Pink: AP1 AP3
Skin: FS4 FS5
I layered underneath the white panel, pinks and the pattern paper from the Valentine's paper pack release.
Thank you Nina for your wonderful inspiration!
