Shot Through the Heart

Hey there all. I have had a great long weekend so far - how about you? YAY - No work tomorrow for me. YAY YAY YAY.

Ok... now that that is out of the way, I have a new card to share with you... This is one of the REALLY cute digital stamps over at the Paper Shelter. I bought a few of them the other day, and this one just made me smile all over my face.
He was so very cute, and a lot of fun to color up. I got to practice a lot of little things on this. Shading, White, Black, Red, transparent things... all those hard things in one card. WHEW. I think it is time for me to have a drink... maybe a Margarita or something. :-)

The blacks are cool greys, and the Skin is E0000, E000, E00 and I added a little R20 in places. All the reds are R20, 22, 24, 27, 29. The Golds are the Y2X family with Y21, 13, 23, 26 and 28 and the White is actually blue - B0000 feathered and then spread more with some Colorless Blender. I went over the wings, the tips of the arrow etc... with a clear gelly roll star pen. It has more sparkle than Spica, so I use it when I don't want subtle, but still want the colors below to show through. For the glasses, I colored everything under the glass as if it would be completely clear. Then I added B0000 and B000 over the coloring I had already done. This gave it a transparent look, but still maintained the color under. I also added some Crystal Effects over the glass in the glasses.

I am entering this into both the Paper Shelter Anything Goes challenge and the Copic Creations white clothing challenge (Diapers are white clothing right? )

See you soon. I plan to color a bit more today and tomorrow and then enjoy some good old fireworks.
