I thought it was time for another tutorial.. This will give some basic steps on
layering and popping the image.
1rst I sponged my background onto a full size sheet of card stock then put it in my printer and printed the digi onto the background.
The inks are from Stampin up': going gray, pink pirouette, soft sky, old olive and summer sun.
Also used was Tim Holtz old wood, tattered rose and adirondack in raisin.
I cut the clouds out from post it note's, stuck them on the page where I wanted them and then went to town inking the page and my fingers every color of the rainbow.
I then cut the whole thing to a size that I needed.
I started cutting and piecing a white layer over the printed image to start my base.
Then it's time to pop the image, as you can see I go through a TON of double stick tape. I buy it in large roles and usually I go through a role every few weeks.
Start by cutting out the main 1rst layer. Notice how I left off any fence line and the rear legs..
Start filling in with double stick, then carefully add the image on top of the previous image.
Keep adding layers until you are satisfied with the result.
Then it's time to add the color. I started with copic w9.
I then started adding shading and touching up in-between the layers with:
W10, W7, E44, black 100, special black 110, C1, 0, W9 ,copic liner 0.3 and a spica in black.
I water colored the fence line in with Tim Holtz old wood.
Then colored in the rest of the image with B45, E39,Yr18, R27, Yr02, E35, YG03, EO2, E00 and copic liner 0.3.
Then added in some finishing details by sponging the edges, coloring in some grass and adding some stickles. I find that when I have dark colors that seem to blend to well stickles really helps me pop the remaining bit of the image.
I hoped this inspired you to go out and play with a digi, and some copic too!
