DIGI DOODLE STUDIOS JULY NEW RELEASE -- SUMMERTIME -- JULY 15, 2022
Everyone, meet Toby! I love this image so much...when I first saw it, I immediately thought he looked just like my friend Kim's grandson, Ezra. So of course, I had to color him up to look like him, as best I could. I had lots of fun coloring Toby, and I focused a lot of my attention to detail on his hair and skin tone. He was colored with alcohol markers, with some added detail from a white gel pen. I also had lots of fun making the little scene he's in. The clouds were inked using my homemade stencil made from the Lawn Fawn Puffy Cloud dies, Tumbled Glass oxide ink, and a blending brush. The waves were created by ink blending Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Mermaid Lagoon oxides onto a scrap piece of 110lb. Accent Opaque white cardstock, spraying them with water to get the spotty, oxidized look, and then splattering with the white watercolor from the Kuretake Starry Colors set. Then I die cut them with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Wave Borders. I am in love with how they turned out!
The stitched square that the scene was created on and the scalloped layer underneath it were designed in the Silhouette Designer Edition software and cut with my Cameo. I purchased a whole bunch of stitched cut files when Silhouette was having a sale, thinking I would get the same look as dies...NOPE! The stitches are either too small or cut weird, so I guess I'll have to slowly build up a collection of "necessary" stitched dies. 😖 The patterned paper on the card base is called Blue Bubbles and comes from the Shades of Summer 8x8 paper pack.
