Charlie’s Angels

I feel like this post might be titled, “And now, for something completely ridiculous. And wonderful. At the same time.”

 

I’ve been wanting to do a baseline comparison of some skintone and hair color combos….thus I decided to try it! These three images are from Saturated Canary – Becki, Color Me Wonderful, and Love Letters. There’s little actual use for a card with this threesome – it really was for the excuse of making the video! This is a shot of my first attempt at coloring this, before I started shooting. I ended up trying to color in the background on this one, and wrecked it! Dang. So the one for the card I’m showing has a white background. Not taking the chance on ruining that much work!

This video is shot in real-time….half an hour is less than I’d prefer to spend doing this much coloring, so have a little grace for going out of the lines here and there 🙂 I was trying to keep it paced quickly  so you don’t nod off. But – be sure to get a cup of coffee ready, you seriously need some time to get through this one.

The card is a simple round card –  I’m making the card into an AnyHero card for OWH one of our soldiers who I have a rather raucous banter with, and she’ll totally love it! I diecut the white base, and adhered the scallops on either side.

Leave me a comment – I’d love to know if you have some “go-to” color combinations….I am forever changing my mind! But the ones in this video are pretty much my current faves.

Color Me Wonderful!

Happpppppppppppppy weekend! Wheeeeee!!! I’m just in such a good mood…even writing this blog post well past midnight, I’m a happy lil camper. The weekend’s here, I have a crafty day with my stamping sisters tomorrow, and next week’s a big week….I’m on pins and neeeeedles!! Agh!

I had a plan for a different video for you guys this weekend but…due to crazy technical issues, that’s going to take a lot more work to work out. I think I had more confidence in my editing skillz than I ought to have! ha. But hopefully that means the final one will be a better video because of it at least. 🙂 But…I think you’ll like this one. Or, maybe you won’t? There’s no voiceover, since I changed plans midstream to finish this one, so…uh. Yeah. Just lots of fun pop music instead! I picked songs with lyrics that speak to where my head’s at, so listen up as you watch, and maybe the words will give you some mojomotivation too!

The image is Color Me Wonderful, a digi from Saturated Canary…lots of fun for practicing hair! She reminds me of those ads when I was a kid – they always made me want to have long flouncy hair, and instead I have super thin hair, so never quite got to that goal. 🙁

 

 

Edited to add: Here’s the video – and in just the first little while it’s been up, I’m already hearing lots prefer the voiceover. So remember, if you don’t like the music, just mute it 🙂 Someone had told me I seem “afraid” of silence, since she doesn’t talk through any of her videos – so this was  partly a test to see what my viewers like. Don’t dislike it just for being an experiment 🙂

Papers on the card are by Lawn Fawn, and the sentiment is by Our Daily Bread Designs…I know it’s not a common pairing, but the card’s for a friend who needs some encouragement, and she’s a Copic buddy. So I thought the combo might make her smile. Sandy Allnock - Color Me Wonderful 2

Airbrushed Eagle Card

I did produce a video tutorial for the airbrushing and Copic coloring of the image in my card from Stampendous, so if you want to see that, watch it on YouTube. (I hope to learn a little more about airbrushing that I can share, but since I know a lot of folks didn’t even know you can airbrush with a marker, I wanted to at least show  you that!)

I used sketch #44…

I was planning on doing red white and blue, but this one wanted to be Purple Mountains Majesty – with purple, green blue….lol! And my May Arts silk ribbon had to be purple to go with it. Hope it’s still nice and patriotic on this holiday! Leave me a comment and tell me if you think it still passes muster 🙂 Wanting that sentiment? Try this link.
