Tickled to Share Another Sneak Peek!
As I mentioned, yesterday's Featured Stamper on SCS was no other than Her Royal Rubberness herself, Julie Ebersole! I have the honor of having Julie as the Creative Team Director for A Muse and besides her creativity and artistic talent, this gal is "good people." The tough thing about this particular challenge was selecting only 1 card as an inspiration piece. All of Julie's cards are filled with such wonderfully, simple detail (yes, that should be a contradiction in terms but this gal is talented enough to pull it off) that I could spend days perusing her beautiful gallery. But since I didn't have that kind of time to piddle away on the computer, I selected an image I wanted to showcase and went from there. I wanted to share this fun little lingerie shop that will be released by A Muse on January 7th, along with the awesome french lamppost and sentiment that are, also, included. With that in mind, I chose this card from Julie's gallery. What inspired me about this particular creation was the backdrop panel and matting the little boutique on black cs to really make it shine. I began my backdrop with a piece of a black argyle band notecard. After adding the French Lampposts, I air brushed a Warm Gray 2 Copic marker to give it a dusky look, added some yellow Copic around the light source, then painted the light source with Candlelight Shimmerz. A little yellow twinkle sticker was placed on the candle for a finishing touch. The Lingerie shop was colored with Copics. Once again, Candlelight Shimmerz was added to the "windows" for a glowing affect. Both panels were adhered to one of my new favorites- Chiffon Pink 4-bar notecards. If you get a chance be sure to check out Julie's Gallery. It is truly worth every minute (err, hour) spent! Wishing you fun Times and inky fingers! Take care!
