I couldnt get Derrick booted off the computer last night in time to upload, so I finished up a card during nap today, and I am uploading all of them now…. :)
And this one is one of my faves. The peachy color is actually pink IRL…
Derrick was off today, so after picking up his truck and eating, we headed to the park. The kids have new sand buckets and shovels, and they were dying to try them out…
And I do have another completed card to share, just waiting till I finish one more tonight, and then I will upload…. :)
So. Learned today that you can take digital images online, heat set them and color them. WHAT???? I spent all afternoon downloading images, and got one colored. Here is my step by step…
Initial image, colored with colored pencils only.
Blended with some shading added.
Completed…I reoutlined her with a black SU pen.
And completed card:
(I cut her with my nesties, and then used a grey copic marker to outline her)
Isn't that amazing? I am so excited about downloading all these free images to color. And I made a decision that I am going to print, print, print pages before vacation so that I have a TON to color during downtime. Yay!!! I am building up a stash of cards already, and I have a backlog of colored images just waiting to be made into cards. I LOVE it.
As a side note….. know what else is really exciting? If you are a demo for SU, they are revealing some of their sets from the new catty tomorrow.I am seriously considering staying up late to see the preview tonight. Can not wait to see, and can not wait to order. New catty comes out July 1st, and I can not wait!!!
I started scanning my cards, and wow, its a lot quicker! These are ones that I completed the past two days. Last night Derrick and I rented a movie and I colored a whole bunch of images. So I will be ready to put together some cards at naptime today!
We have not done much this three day weekend. Mostly be lazy together, which has been so nice. Derrick was off yesterday and we got some piddly things done around here, and got the house cleaned up. I feel like its been forever since the house had a good deep cleaning, so it felt like it was way past time! I only have a couple things left to finish up today, like cleaning the back bathroom (ICK- I am putting it off as long as possible!) and cleaning up the screened in porch. Its so funny to clean with kids though. Its like you get one room cleaned and you turn around and there are toys or boots or trucks in the room that you just cleaned! It drives me crazy!
