ORANGE!! It had to be used somewhere in the project.
So here's what I've got for you!!
My card base is DP from a DCWV mat stack. My next layer is PTI chocolate cardstock followed by a layer of older SU! DP, followed lastly by a slice of Crate Paper DP.
Our gorgeous Bird Nymph is stamped using Momento ink in Tuxedo Black (what else would I use??) =) directly onto a scrap of tetxtured, cream colored cardstock twice.
She is colored with my new Prismacolor pencils and then fiercely blended with a tissues. I colored both sets of wings in the same brilliant, purple, raspberry color. I also colored the feathers that cross her mid-section in a brilliant turquoise color. I trimmed the extra set of wings and belly feathers out and adhered them to my main image.
I then stamped her dress onto tracing paper, shaded it in with one of my many delicious orange colored pencils and then adhered to this gorgeous woman. I then did some more shading and when I was happy, I coated the dress with Diamond Glaze and set her aside to dry.
My embellishments are minimal but definitely add a pop. I added 2 staples (they are dark orange...hard to tell in the photos) to the folded top left corners, 3 copper colored brads to define the upper corner, 2 puzzle pieces in similar hues as lastly a cool postal stamp embellishment that also pulls in all of the colors that I chose.
