Coloring over pattern paper | Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team Hop

Hey everyone!

Today is blog hop day with the Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team. <--- head to this link if you are just starting. This time we are working with pattern paper. I decided to try coloring with some alcohol markers over the top of the Bold Rainbow pattern paper. 

So I took my scrap piece of this stripey Bold Rainbow piece of paper and stamped the owls with Raven detail ink, then heat set. I used a few Copic markers to color with, list of colors below. I started with a W6 in the shadow areas below the eyes and around the outer edge of the body. Then blending that out with the W3. Leaving the very center of the bodies to color with W0. Using these grays really makes the birds pop off the busy background. I also used that gray combination of markers on the bottom part of the paper where the limb is. Just for affect. This was also reminding me of filters like you see on Instagram.  😏 Follow me here!

I used the Y38 and Y35 to color in the eyebrows (Do birds have eyebrows?) on the larger owl and R08, R05 for the smaller one. To make the eyes of these guys stand out I used E35. Which also matches the Instant Photo Frame I used to frame these little guys. Unfortunately my scrap piece of Bold Rainbow pattern paper (I'm hoarding it, lol) was a little small so I had to do some chopping on the laser cut frame. I just chopped the bottom off and used that to mask my paper shortage. Easy!

I glued those together with my ATG and adhered it to a A2 Neenah Solar White 110lb card base. For the sentiment I used Brutus Monroe Raven cardstock and heat embossed using Clear Embossing ink and Alabaster white embossing powder. After melting the powder I trimmed those down to strips and adhered to the photo frame.
