Hi, guys! today I want to share a birthday card I made for my friend Anna. While deciding what card to make for Anna, I came across this little sprite of a faerie. I think she is just darling. So, I decided to use the photo tinting technique I learned from Tim Holtz while participating in his 12 Tags of 2012. In this technique you add color to selected areas of the photo. You will notice that I used glossy cardstock for the image, and stamped with a permanent ink (Archival Black). To add color I used various shades of distress inks.
Paper: Ranger Glossy Cardstock, Stampin' Up
Ink: Archival Ink (Black), Distress Inks
Misc.: Gem, rectangle punch, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
This is becoming one of my favorite techniques. I find it fun and relaxing to color the images and am busy making tags using old family photographs for family members.
Wishing Anna a very happy birthday, and a great year ahead! May each of you have a day filled with fun and perhaps a bit of magic!
