Today I have the honor of being the Guest Designer at Crafting By Design.
I was also privileged to choose a digital stamp to use, by Big Head Stamps!
I chose Gerard. Isn't he adorable?
The challenge at CBD is, "Anything Goes," which makes it super easy for you to enter.
I teach a class on shading with color. I think it makes for an interesting effect. I use Indigo Blue and Crimson Red Prismacolor Premier Pencils to do all my shading.
I used the Out of the Box technique to make a spotlight around Gerard, putting him in the light, while the "rest of the world out there" is in the shadows...
As his huge eyes are the main focus (no pun intended), I used some Glossy Accents to coat his big green eyes.
I created the simple sentiment in Word.
The background papers are from a 6x6 pad by MME.
The fibers are by EK Success...had 'em for awhile...
I used Memento Black to ink the edges of virtually everything!
I used a sketch from Kathy's Waffle Sketch Challenge Blog
(see her sketch below).
And the inside...inspired by Pink Elephant's Photo (see below)
I used a paper inlay technique. I used the same papers to attach strips of paper together,
before die-cutting the greeting.
