Quixotic Paperie - Oliver

Morning folks!

It is such a glorious day today that I am going to keep this brief as I want to make the most of the last days of summer and get out to the garden.

Today I am following a trend :)) Now all over blogland and Facebook groups there has been a new trend starting!! And I just had to give it a try . Talented crafters on the Make It Crafty Facebook Group have been colouring their stamped images with no black lines....and instead using evry faint grey ones.

So I had to see if it was as hard as it looked ...I do like a challenge!!

So for my Quixotic Paperie DT card this week  I stamped an image from The Greeting Farm which I have had for ages but it has not seen any love as yet!  This one is Oliver from the 'Journey Set'. He is coloured with copics and a little amount of pencil for the sky background.  I used (as recommended by Elaine) an Adrionack Ink Pad 'Lake Mist' to get the light grey lines on the image. Once coloured it creates a really nice soft, pastel effect on the image. This is a technique I would love to try again and perfect a little more .

The papers I used are Fancy Pants 'Beach Bum' 6 x6 pad. I have given them all the distressed treatment. I have also used a Tim Holtz journalling ticket and a Tim Holtz Metal Hinge Clip.

Thanks for popping by today.

Back soon!

The shading of his hat & trousers are amazing & I love that rainbow strip in your design. His white trainers are very effective & I love seeing how you ground your images. A lovely example of this technique.
