Color Throwdown #61 with Gina K



Happy Wednesday everyone! This week the Color Throwdown is being sponsored by GinaK! I used the camper image from the set Are We There Yet? It's was stamped and colored with Copics, then cut out and popped up on the scene I created. I used Eclipse tape to make a mask for the mountains and sponged on different shades of green, using the negative piece I cut to mask the mountain so I could sponge the sky. I then used stencil brushes to pounce on fall colors in mustard, olive, red, and brown to create an autumn foliage scene on the mountains. I sketched in very light trunks and branches with a brown pencil. I masked the bottom to sponge on Distress Ink in Black Soot for the road and used an Inkssentials White Opaque pen for the dotted line. I finished by adding some Diamond Glaze to the windows on the camper to look like glass.



Come on over and play with us this week! There is a random drawing for a prize from Gina K and the chance to become a Featured Stamper! Check out all the great samples from our design team!
