Hey if you’re a Paper Smooches fan – I’m so sorry to let you know they went out of biz! While the stamps aren’t available anymore, the technique might be helpful.
Sometimes a full background is too much. You need just a little something something….so add just a little wash of color to draw attention to your focal point – either the stamps or the sentiment!
So what exactly is a vignette?
Vignette: a small illustration or portrait photograph which fades into its background without a definite border.
Gosh I love Paper Smooches stamps….the images have good heavy lines (easy for new Copic colorists) and simple shapes.
The bear looks pretty dark in photos – but in reality it’s much better. If yours gets too dark, add a little glossy accents to his eyes and nose and they pop right out!
