Tally ho!

My Mum celebrated her ?? birthday this week & here's the card I made for the occasion....

The old girl hasn't quite progressed to this mode of transport yet & was adament she didn't remotely resemble the image!!!!!

It was done "tongue in cheek" as Mum and Dad will be looking after Roo, our Westie when we go on holiday in the summer & I'm sure our pooch would have a blast if "walkies" meant a trip in Nana's scooter!!!!

Image: Justinklined - Renie & Scrappy
Paper: Fizzy Moon - Celebrations
Colouring: Copics, Prismacolor, Chalk ink
Additional: Stickles glue, star punches, Fizzy Moon ribbon, sewing machine, caption from Word Art World

Sorry, there's no Copics list for this.

Happy Crafting

PS) Did you realize you have word verification on? I know we never know ourselves unless someone tells us so you might want it on, just thought I'd mention it.

Thanks Dorcas - How did that happen? I've taken it off (even though I didn't put it on)

Jane how do you do it.
I love the way you show movement on your subjects clothing. The light/dark shading on the pleats of her skirt/clothes.
Any hints and tips? :o)

Jane said...

Hints & tips eh! Have a piece of clothing to look at - and study where the light & shade falls in the folds. Then try & apply that to your picture. Photo's in a magazine help too - if someone is sitting down study which areas are darkest ie in shadow - you'll notice the body parts that would be closer to you are lighter. If you can apply that rule to your work it will look more dimensional.
