Are you ready for a new challenge at Creative Knockouts?!? Team B is up with a Texture Challenge - use embossing folders, heat embossing powder, texture paste - anything to give your card texture! I used two different embossed papers that were in my scrap drawer (love when that happens!) and embossing powder for my sentiment.
A Day for Daisies is our sponsor. The image I chose is from the Timeless Beauties collection, called Bird's Nest - isn't she fun?!? I love her face - the eyes, those full lips and that button nose!! I almost let the hair intimidate me, but took a deep breath and dove in. It was actually more simple than I thought because I tackled it section by section. My practice image had more highlights, but I'm pretty happy with this one. I've found that sometimes layers of colors build up when I color hair if I am using Cryogen white paper. Strokes won't blend out and I can't get the contrast with shading, so I have to stop!!
This week's sketch from Retro Sketches was used to design my card.
Take a look at what my teamies have done for you here and then play along with us.
