I only have a couple more Father's Day cards to make. Whew! It's been kind fast and furious between Graduation and Father's Day.
This is the card I made to give to the girl's daddy from just them. I know! It's not in any way shape or form a masculine card, but hey, it's from the girls! The two peas in a pod! Fric and Frac!
So my idea was to use Tingla, the baby girl from Magnolia and mask my first image to put the second image beside/behind. My first big challenge was getting the skin tones right. Our babies are bi-racial and are more olive complected. Definitely not white like all the Tilda's you see out there. So after stamping her on scrap paper four or five times and playing around with colors, I finally came up with this:
(Oh! I shouldn't show the close-up first!!)
Then I completely finished coloring the card except the hair. I was so afraid to start. It's hard to color black hair and this was a first for me. I watched Suzanne Dean's video over and over. Well please be kind with your thoughts. I'm still learning.
Here is the complete card:
I have to add that almost all the time I dress the girls exactly the same. I've learned to tell the difference but for those who can't we have identifiers. Brielle has little pink stone earings, Josslyn has green. Brielle uses only the pink bottles, Josslyn the green ones. So on these little P.J.'s I put a pink heart for Brielle and a green heart for Josslyn. (just so daddy won't get them confused!)
Here is the inside: (I have not finished the inside of one of my cards, but I just had to do something with this one...
Here are the Copics I used:
Thanks for stopping by to view my card.
