Hello there 🙂 I’m sharing my inspiration card for this month’s ATG (old or new) challenge at the Aurora Wings Facebook group. It doesn’t even have to be a full project, we like to see your colorings, as well!! When I saw this image, Cultured (available HERE on Etsy, and HERE in the digi shop), I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. With all the frontline workers doing so much for everyone during the pandemic, the testers are often forgotten. I made this card to send to these people at our provincial laboratory <3 Before printing the image, I lightened up the lines of her nose and mouth, as I added the mask to her (Mitzi is so good with us making small alterations like this mask to her images). When I colored her up with my Copics, you could still see the shadow of her lower face, which was what I wanted. I added Glossy Accents to the goggles for a bit of realism, and fussy cut her out.
I dug around in my paper, and opted for this neon green (virus?) color for the base. I die cut 2 abstract cuts….which looked science-y to me…..and layered them on the green. I took some of the bright blue paper from the same pad as the green, and cut the thanks out of it, then again from black, to give it a shadow. After everything was pasted in place, and matted, the card needed something. Some black sequins fit the bill perfectly, and the card remained flat for easy mailing. I wrote a note in it, and instead of signing it, I just expressed that this thanks was from the people of Saskatchewan 🙂
