Celestial Dreams

I said all this yadda yadda on Splitcoast, but I am gonna repeat it here, bear with me.... I get this call a few weeks ago from Rubbernecker - will I guest design for them? Uh - sure, doubting myself at that moment. I know there are wonderful colorists on that team. I won't ever try to even duplicate what they do. Then, Sherry says that they love my collage work. OK, I am catching on now. Great, collage is a no brainer for me, coloring is another story. Fine, I will take on the challenge and guest design for them for 2 months. 3 weeks into this gig, I am so hooked on Rubbernecker images that I have branched out into the intimidating territory of colorable images. Oh man! I will never confess to even try to be a colorist, but I must say that Rubbernecker images are the easiest to color with ease. Really, if I can do it anybody can the images are superior to any I have stamped with in the past. On to the nitty gritty's: Image stamped on GP white with Tim Holtz Black Soot. Colored with copics. Sponged around image with Weathered Wood, edges with Black Soot. Stickles on stardust. Layered on strip with Moon Panel in the Stamp Oasis section as well as the celestial dreams image. The sentiment was markered and part of a sentiment from the petite sayings set also in the Stamp Oasis section. Thanks for looking and reading my long drawn out version about my coloring! Now, go check out
