This morning my friend from the second grade (yes a million years ago) called me to say hello. It was an awesome way to start a very busy weekend. Donna told me that her new husband Bill Couts LOVED this image, so I made it into a card and would like to send it to him after I display it at CHA this week. So Bill this is for you!
Reds: DR1, DR3, DR7, CR7
Flesh: TN2, FS2, TN3
shorts: TB2, TB3 (and a bit of rubbing alcohol on a piece of denimn)
Hat: IG2, IG4, IG7
Hair: TN4, TN7 and a bit of GB3
The texture is fun and easy. Here is how....
1. Color area you want texturized before coloring any other areas of the image.
2. Take a piece of denim and add a bit of rubbing alcohol (not soaking wet just damp).
3. Now wrap the denim around an acrylic block for evenness then stamp over the colored area.
4. Lift the block and denim and watch the alcohol dilute the areas where the texture touched the ink.
Be sure not to color surrounding areas until alcohol has dried. If you color the surrounding areas prior to adding texture the colors will bleed together or you will have textured everything. Texture on the leg or tummy would not be very appealing. yuck.
The rest of the stuff I worked on is top secret using a new products that will be released at CHA in January! Toot Toot - stay tuned you will LOVE them.!
