Free download from Gypsy Rose Paperie (Image Two)
Gypsy Rose Paperie has two free download images up on the blog this week. I did the first one and posted it on www.postingfromparadise.blogspot.com two days ago. Due to the Tropical Storm Fay and our preparations yesterday (which were for nothing thank goodness), I had to wait until today to play with the second image. I painted the chipboard backing with a mix of Adirondack Alcohol Ink in Cranberry and a 7Gypsy color wash in pale pink. I printed the lady image on canvas paper and used painted on diluted Lumiere ink to color the shawl yet keep it sheer appearing. I added tiny dots onto the shawl with Stickles and a tiny tipped paint brush. I painted the hair netting with Stickles as well. I used Lumiere on her lips to add color. The butterfly is an acrylic piece I got from a Prima class I took at CHA this summer. I used Krylon copper to color it and backed the butterfly with a specialty paper.
Would love to see what others do with these images! Thanks, as always, for looking.
