Julia Spiri Little Ballerina | World Wide Open Challenge | Design Team Project

Julia Spiri Little Ballerina

Hey crafty friends, welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Challenge for the month of August. For this month’s card, I used Little Ballerina by Julia Spiri, found here

This month I opted for a simpler card design by focusing on the image with a little ink blending. I printed the image onto a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of smooth white cardstock then printed another copy onto regular copy paper. I used this second print to create a simple mask by fussy cutting the image and adding liquid adhesive. For a repositionable hold, I typically use Zig 2 Way Glue then allow the mask to dry clear.

Copic Color Combination

Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
Lips: RV17
Outfit: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV10, RV000, N01, N0

Before coloring the image, I ink blended the background using a Watercolor Wash Rectangle Stencil with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink.

Next, I colored in the image using Copic Markers and used a stitched rectangle die to trim the panel. To finish this card, I stamped out a sentiment, clear embossed, and added a few clear beads.
