It's Tuesday, and that means it's time for another Try It Out Tuesday! This week Suzanne has challenged us to use red, white and blue on our projects. I knew I wanted to use this sweet fairy named Sassafras, but I was running low on mojo so I headed over to Friday Sketchers for some inspiration, and they have a great sketch this week. I colored this sweet Fairy with my Copics. Did you know that SCACD has bundles already put together with colors that blend well? This one uses most of the skin colors from the Skin Tones Bundle. There are also some awesome video tutorials by Suzanne! They are all available in the sidebar, so check them out!!
I made this little flower from some organza fabric I had in my stash. I have going nuts making these! For the little photo corners, I colored a couple chipboard corners with a B29 Copic, then I went over it with my Ranger embossing marker and added clear embossing powder. Then I spritzed it heavily with Concrete Spritz. I love the effect of the spritz over embossing - it sort of pools up and then dries in all the little nooks and crannys. It ends up giving it a sort of stone-like look! You'll be seeing more of this in upcoming projects too. And maybe a little tutorial? To finish it all off, I gave the entire card a light spritz of Baby's Breath Spritz.
Here's a couple close up to see some of the effects of the Spritz!
