Fully Recovered

Art Impressions....you gotta love them! This one is called "Recovered" and it was done for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. Once again I couldn't get the colors in the pic to show as deep as they really are...so use your imagination! The chair is much darker!


I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils and blended them with baby oil. Again to save on cardstock, the black "layers" are fauxed by using a ruler and Sharpie marker. The blue layer is actually a white piece of cs, I just used a Copic marker around the edges to get the color I wanted!

I used my Scor-Pal to get the correct size of the sketch layer then cut around it with scissors. The blue layer and main panel are popped up on thin foam dimensionals.

The "Recovered" image comes as one entire framed rectangle with the sentiment framed within it. I cut it all apart so I could use it separately if I wanted. *wink*

recipe:

stamps: art impressions
ink: adirondack pitch black-ranger
paper: georgia pacific white, my mind's eye, dcwv
other: prismacolor pencils, baby oil, blending stumps, score-pal, ruler, sharpie marker, copic marker, foam dimensionals

We're in a Winter Wonderland today! It's beautiful outside!! Maybe I'll get out later and get some pics to share!

Thanks for stopping!

I like the way you do your "faux layers" - I'm going to remember that!
I am a digital artist (and hybrid cardmaker). I truly appreciate this trick, because on occasion I find I need a border around an image and it's too late as it's already printed - moreover I dont have the right color of cardstock handy.
Thanks for a great idea!
