The Zadis Project

Happy Hump Day! I have a beautiful Artist Trading Card (ATC) to show you today for this week's Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge. The theme is Snowbirds and our lovely sponsor is Aurora Wings.

I was lucky enough to create an ATC with Masquerade Owl Mask. It is such a stunning image and actually a little on the difficult side to color. :blush:

Snowbirds Artist Trading Card (ATC)Copics used:
Skin: E000-00-21-11 R20
Hair: E50-51-53-35
Eyes/Flowers: C1-3
Jewel/lips: R24-29-59
Feathers: B000-00-93

When deciding how to color the image up I really tried a light, ethereal combination, keeping within the blues. Although I think this image is perfect for watercolors, I am better at my Copics so opted for that. 🙂 I also blinged her up quite thoroughly, however as per usual the camera didn't catch it. The effect looks AMAZING.

The background of the ATC is a mixture of a some silver and light blue stamped splatters. They look really pretty. I then added some texture with some sewing as well as a new technique (for me) by randomly applying WoW! Embossing powder (Antique White) to the corners of the ATC then heating it from the backside of the image.

I'm sure most of you are busy this time of year, though I hope you get a chance to play with us at WW this week! I'm off to go have a little :coffee: and finish knitting up a Jul gift. Cheers!

    Yep, coloring this image would scare me, but you’ve done a beautiful job. I like the blues too x
