Friends with Flair

Today is Friday and I am happy I can participate in Unity's FWF. 

You know I love imperfection.  I can definitely appreciate and value a well colored image but I also love the imperfect look in some images, simulating different styles of painting and showing great work as well. 

For this image I wanted a subtle coloring without perfect lines and just going from one color to another... So I just made up a technique... LOL. 

I stamped the image in vellum to use as stencil. Measuring by eye and lifting the image, I applied color in cardstock in the corresponding areas. 


I then slightly and taking seriously the imperfection, blended colors with water brush. 

Finally, stamped the image on the colors. This way the image look sharp because the color was applied first as base. 


I cut the image for a card. 

Hope you like it. If so, don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win with Unity.   

Have a great weekend.
