Happy Sunday my friends! It's time for another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! Here is this week's inspiration:
Here is my take on the inspiration:
I used the red, pink and green on the cupcakes to color my image. I paired her with some yummy patterned papers from Making Memories' Just Chilling Girl collection.
I colored Spring Time Lily illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller using Tim Holtz Distree Ink pads. I found an awesome tutorial here on water coloring using distress inks and just had to give it a try. I didn't use reinkers though, I just pressed some inks on my acrylic blocks and used a watercolor brush to pick up and mix colors.
I used water color paper for this. And obviously I have a lot of room for improvement! =) I have a few more images colored using this method, so stay tuned! Let me know if you like the water color look! I am not giving up my Copics. Just playing around with all sorts of fun techniques! =)
That's all I have for today. Don't forget to go and check out what other HSE Sweeties came up with! Here are the links:
