Sunset (Some Odd Girl)
I was in the mood to color yesterday, but to color something different and unique. See, I'd come across this pretty palette picture of a sunset:
So, I stamped out Some Odd Girl's Miss You Mae and grabbed my Copics. I could have colored her in lots of different ways - a sunset dress, or sunset ruffles. But I decided to be bold and give her sunset hair.
I just grabbed markers in the similar colors as my inspiration photo and played around - minimal blending and just layering color here and there where it looked good. After her hair was done, I colored in her skin and dress, keeping them relatively simple. I added some white polkadots to the black ruffles for fun, and carefully cut her out.
I kept the rest of the card simple, adding a sentiment from Flirty Mae and scattering some Baby Mix sequins around the page. I matted everything onto some light blue cardstock, and the card was done.
Thanks for reading!
