© All Rights ReservedThis week’s Sunday Postcard Art challenge was “Key to my heart.”
I made a StazOn Color Technique piece for this challenge. This is the second time I've tried this.
Although my piece is digital, I followed the same techniques shown in the instruction video. I chose my stamps, then applied masks to maintain "keep out regions" for previously stamped areas. I used a sponge brush in GIMP to apply the ink colors.
Next, I simulated a white Gelly Roll Pen by drawing lines on top of the image after I was done coloring it. I thought the upper right hand corner looked a little bare, so I embellished it by drawing circles with the "Gelly Roll Pen."
Finally, I "cut out" typewriter key letters, determined where I wanted to place them, StazOn colored them, then "glued" them down.
All of the stamps are from Clipart ETC and the typewriter keys are from an image I found on the Internet. (See the side of my blog for links.)
I used the following colors:
0f788e Teal Blue
f0d929 Sunflower Yellow
b18848 Copper (looks Gold)
822135 Black Cherry
e05b78 Cherry Pink
