JUN13VSNP, Understandblue aka Lydia challenged us to create a mirage or a softer no line coloring image on our cards.
Never tried this technique but Lydia provided us with a wonderful tutorial on the process to help us.
My first attempt at this technique was a failure - I think the problem was that I was attempting an image that was way to complicated (two many lines). I therefore, ended up with a simple bird image which worked better for me. Colored it with Copic markers and then fussy cut the image out and placed it on foam adhesives. Wanted a simple look to my card and the focal point to be the bird image.
Used the CB to emboss, and then chalked the surface of the CS in light brown. Added one large dark brown swirl to resemble a branch which was cut out with my Silhouette. Final touch a sheer cream ribbon under the image.
Thanks for looking and I hope you will try this challenge and not get discouraged. I will be trying this again!!
Nice to have you with us for the VSN Dog Days of Summer!
