Saturdays with Amy

it’s SCENIC SATURDAY with AMY!

www.stampingbella.com: Rubber stamp used: Curvy Girl Baker.  Card made by Amy Young

 

Hello Bellas!

Amy here with a new Scenic Saturday card to share. This time around I thought it would be cool to show how fun and effective creating a monochromatic grey scale background can be. I started off by stamping and coloring the beautiful new Curvy Girl Baker on Copic X-Press It card stock. I knew that I wanted to create a kitchen for her to live in but I still wanted to keep most of the focus on her, so I grabbed a ruler and a handful of my lighter W Copics, W00 up to W3. Using the W3 and the ruler I proceeded to sketch in the cupboards and stove, then I used my lighter greys to add in simple shading to give the different kitchen elements just a touch of dimension. Now you’ve got a fun environment for her to call home but there is no denying that this Curvy Girl is the star of the show! Just like my last Scenic Saturday card, this is another great coloring technique to baby step your way into creating backgrounds using your markers and I hope you will give it a try. 🙂

 

Stay crafty!

    I absolutely luv this!!! Suggestion-make the background a stamp!!! Some of us aren’t so talented to be able to draw like that. I bet it would be a great seller!!! Please????????

    I agree! Make the background stamp! Also need one of a beauty shop for the girls with curlers….

    I love how Curvy Girl Baker really stands out because of how you did the background! I get it! It’s what I am always telling people when they make cards. If you are doing coloring but you want to add some embellishments, don’t add too much because my eyes don’t know what to look at first with to many embellishments & coloring. We know here, it’s your coloring of Curvy Girl Baker because she stands out. Great job!
