Good morning, Oddies! We are having out annual Hol-Odd-Day hop starting now and if’ you’re here, you should have arrived from Melissa’s blog.
Today I bring not one, but two samples from the A-Mazing Digi release today! First up is Angel Mae. Isn’t she lovely?! I could easily see her on a beautiful Christmas card, but I wanted to make something more neutral with her to show how versatile she really is. Her wings are such a dream to color! I chose to keep a simple gold, white and pale blue theme with her, and I had fun creating the little highlights on her halo and the clouds, since obviously she’s a bright, glowing angel. The sentiment is from Happy Day and I think it makes it the perfect card to give to a special friend just because!
Next up I have Forest Goddess
I have to admit, I have not had this much fun coloring an image in some time. There is so much detail in the drawing and it gives you so much opportunity to play with color and shading. I wanted a very vibrant autumnal pallet for her, finishing the area around her with matching Distressed Inks and a little bit of gold spray for added shimmer.
To do this , I cut two images of her, one on the solid rectangle and one right up to the outline and I used that for a reverse mask to protect my colored image from the Distress Inks.
I finished off the card with some Tattered Flowers made from Mid-Summer Night’s Dream book pages, a little Webster’s Pages trim and a Studio Calico wooden veneer flag with a Thank You Mae sentiment stamped on it.
These are definite must-have additions to your Some Odd Girl collections! Maybe you’ll want to use them on this month’s challenge!
