Lucy on a Card with Flowers
Ok the titles kind of dorky but I couldn't resist. This little angel's name is Lucy and you can get her here at Scrapper's Delights. The card is an A2, which means its 4 1/4 inches by 5 1/2 inches. I needed to print out Lucy quite small to fit onto the card and I thought that would make her difficult to color. The first run through with my copic markers didn't work so well, but freshly sharpened colored pencils and Gamsol for blending worked just beautifully. I was able to match her dress with the center of the large chipboard flower that dominates the card. I chose to make her a blonde because I wanted her to POP! This was to make sure that even though she isn't the largest element on the card she is the focal point. I hope you give this a try. Grab an A2 card, some large chip board elements, patterned paper and Lucy and see how much fun it is to make her PoP!
