Courtney's Closet #33




I just love the flowers in Courtney's dress this week! (This is Libby's daughter, not mine) So bright, happy, and cheerful! I used colored pencils and baby oil to color my flower, which is from Hero Arts. Gina K's StampTV technique challenge this week is to color a picture using pencils and OMS (orderless mineral spirits).


Baby oil or Goo Gone also work if you don't have oms. I tried both the baby oil and Goo Gone, and didn't find much difference between the two. I've been doing a bit of practicing with this technique, and like the results with the purple. Four different shades of purple in the image. I also tried the same flower, but with an orange/yellow scheme, and the colors didn't blend/match as well.


The butterfly was not a planned item, there was going to be some ribbon...but I smudged up some of my sponging, and needed something to cover it up! Butterfly fit the bill.


Happy crafting!
