I been finally doing summer activities with my family and unfortunately it has put some of my crafting to the back burner LOL but no worries I'm still trying to do a bit here and there... hopefully when my kids' summer vacation is over I get a little more time to do crafty stuff if homework doesn't suck up my time. :P
Okay so I was asked to make a card with an Aurora Wings image and of course I said YES because I love her drawings/paintings they are just gorgeous detailed works of art. So when I received the image I was like whoa whoa whoa that's a lot of work to color. LOL Either way coloring puts me at ease and it's quite relaxing the only thing is what colors to choose to give it the look it deserves.... Another thing is I know I didn't give it justice. I will have to make another card with this image again in totally different colors... well I might keep the peonies the same color lol. OH YEA so... well... what happen was.... I thought those purple flowers were AFRICAN LILIES lol they are so not that! They are actually SPIDER LILIES... whoops. I should have looked at the name of the image first right?
Well here you go... I'm showcasing Japanese Oiran in Kimono Spider Lily) (just click the link and it'll take you right to Aurora Wings Etsy shop.)
This is a 6x6 card and I printed two of these images on a 8.5x11 Spectrum Noir Premium cardstock. Oh yea on the Landscape side so I can make sure the height would fit a 6x6 card and be able to be matted. So it's 5x 5 3/4. As minimal decoration I wanted the side panels to be gold.
Probably the easier parts to color were the peonies and were my favorites to colors :)
I colored my entire image with Copic markers. I chose lucky red for the Kimono... it's just the color that first came to mind and I'm even sure if the flowers match it but oh well I had fun coloring. :P
The red cardstock base is from Recollections and the Gold cardstock is from DCWV Metallic Premium Stack. Hope you like my card and hope you are inspired to color one or many of Mizi's beautiful images.
