ART FROM THE ROAD: Sunday Postcard Art Challenge (07-08-18)

Good afternoon and Happy Sunday! This may be only the second time in history that I have created my Sunday Postcard Art on Sunday! We are given the theme for each challenge a week ahead of time and then are given another week within which to submit it. I hope you will find some time this week to participate in the DOLLS challenge at the Sunday Postcard Art site. You will find submission directions there.

Google is pretty generous about sharing free images and that's where I found this beauty and her doll. The original image had a very bright and white background and I had wanted something more subdued. I used my ink blending tool to darken the background by using Distress Oxide inks in Vintage Photo (brown),  Faded Jeans (blue), and, last, Peeled Paint (green). By staying away from the focal image, I was able to create a halo effect around her. I used a text stamp from Stampotique called Quiet Place. Finally, I edged the postcard with black Archival Ink from Ranger. And, done!

Thank you for stopping by today and for taking a moment to leave a comment. Both inspire me!
