Gingersnap Creations. This time, the inspiration is famous painters or famous paintings. This was a great excuse for me to continue to play with Oxford Impressions' Soul of the Rose plate, this time using the Flaming June image by Frederic Leighton. I colored her with Copics (which is so easy with these images... they are so detailed that you barely need any shading at all - I only used two oranges, two browns, and two flesh tones for the lovely lady). I used some alcohol inks on glossy paper, then ran the panel through the Cuttlebug with Tim's swirly texture fade (lovin' that!). I added a little coordinating patterned paper, some rust-colored silk ribbon (which I got at Ellen Hutson's store), and a straight pin (which had only a clear crystal top.... I added a few blue beads of my own, too). Nothing too complicated.
I hope you can play along with us at Gingersnap Creations... check out what the design team and our lovely guest artists have come up with - you are sure to be inspired. This challenge runs through August 29th, so you've got tons of time to play. :)
