Today we have another Sneak Peek! I can't wait to see the catalogue at the end of the month. From the bits I've seen we are going to have some fabulous new images. This is Relax & Fish - isn't it a great masculine image? I had a LOT of fun coloring it.
Like usual, I studied the image. I actually searched online to get an idea how to color the fish. Is it a Salmon? Rainbow trout? Still not sure. I picked a salmon. Then I compared my general color palette to my TAC paper swatch book and came up with Winchester as a great match for the colors I had in mind.
I colored the image with Copic markers. I ended up using a lot of colors and even some of the new ones released this year.
The sky is a light pastel blue chalk. The edges of the image are sponged with Cognac and Burnt Umber Palette ink.
This image has my Dad written all over it. So I added "for you Dad" from Thinking of You...one of my favorite word sets. Also some hemp cord from the local craft store, just a little rustic touch to finish it off.
Supplies-- Stamps: T-3473 Relax & Fish, Thinking of You, Papers: Winchester SWIC and Cardstock, Copic Caboodles white cardstock, Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Cognac and Burnt Umber Palette ink, Copics, Pastel chalks, hemp cord.
