Large Dame (DT Coloring project by Sharon Jeffs)

Large Dame

by Sharon Jeffs

I stamped my Frantic Stamper Large Dame image onto plain card-stock using an archival ink.  Once the ink was thoroughly dry, I then began to color it using Distress Ink Markers and a waterbrush.

I used the following colors:

      Spiced Marmalade (Top and Bottom sections)
      Fired Brick (Title at top and bottom, roses)
      Forest Moss (Rose leaves and stem)
      Antique Linen (Hand holding rose, Dames face and arms)
      Stormy Sky (Starry background and swirly corners)
      Walnut Stain (Hair)
      Dusty Concord (Dress)

For the dress, I used the Distress Ink Marker and a waterbrush to soften the appearance of the dress and add shadow.

Happy coloring!

Sharon Jeffs - Q3 - Card 1

Air Balloon over Paris Card

by Sharon Jeffs

I recently did an online card course with Tim Holtz, and up until then I had never really had any interest in trying out the Perfect Pearls Mists.  However,  the classes made me very interested in trying them out and I was thrilled with just how easy they were to use.

For my card, I stamped a Paris Border from the Frantic Stamper line of stamps and a Decorated Balloon.  I also stamped a second Balloon image onto a separate piece of card and cut it out.

Next, I spritzed Perfect Pearls Mist Forever Blue and Mandarin over the one side and used a heat tool to dry. 

Finally I colored in the cut out balloon using a waterbrush and Distress markers (I used Rusty Hinge; Stormy Sky and Peeled Paint) before attatching it to my card using foam tabs.
