New Angelica & Adam Release!

This week the CC Design team is previewing images from the upcoming new release of  Angelica & Adam sets. They are so cute! Here's my design: 



I stamped the image onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and  also onto some colorful design paper. Next, time for coloring!  I referred to my color chart to help me match colors to the design paper.


 I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir Markers using a combination of direct coloring to the cardstock and also tip to tip.  As you lay the color on the cardstock, the color starts out as dark and a natural blending occurs as the marker returns to its lighter color.

To add texture to his jeans, I spritzed a small amount of alcohol onto denim fabric and lightly touched to the the blue areas. The alcohol moves the color into the pattern of the fabric. I cut out the complete image and edged it with a black water-based marker. To adhere the design paper, I used Collall's Tacky-Glue


Here are the colors I used:  
shirt: OR1, OR2, Blender
skin: FS1, FS2, FS3, FS4, FS9, CR4, TN1 (freckles -
TIP: wait until face dries before adding freckles - otherwise the markers are doing their job of blending while wet. :o))
overalls: TB3, TB3, TB4
shoes: IG1, DR2
kitten: IG1, CR4, Blender
skateboard: CT1, CT2, CT4
wheels: BG1, BGR3, IG10
ribbon: over design paper: DR7
bow: DR2, DR4, DR7, PP3



I used a sentiment from the set and popped this little guy up with Double Sided Adhesive Foam Circles. I used a white paint pen to add a few highlights.
