I wanted to show off a couple of cards I did for the Operation Write Home. I made almost 80 cards for Halloween and needed a nice way to color them quickly. So my solution was to “scribble” the background. I got the scribble technique from another Angel, here she is!
Delightfully Spooky T-3348 $15.95 Set of 9
I thought this was a nice way to really show off the cute little kids, while keeping me from having to color them. I am using the Copic ciao Set A, at this time this all I own. I hope to get a couple more sets soon.
The background paper is a DCWV seasonal pack I picked up. When I was getting the cards prepped, I had used the pack to top the front of the cards. After about 40, I was ready for different paper, but I think that is with any color palette.
So here is the technique I did for the background:
- Use a darker copic to lightly scribble around the image. I made the scribbles denser around the image and then thinned it out as I got away from the image.
- Use the lighter color to scribble in for the spots missed near the image and to then out past the darker color.
I hope you like it! I will be posting pictures on Friday of the box I am sending to Operation Write Home. I have a few to pick up from other people, but right now I have 244! YEAH!!!!
