I recently was at a local scrapbooking store that I will be teaching at this month, and the owner, Bridget gave me some fun goodies to play, including some great vintage images printed on transparency film. One of the sheets were these little girls, which I now call my rainy day girls. :)
CI Paints are perfect for coloring theimages. In order to color them, I flipped them over and colored the reverse side. After I colored the areas I wanted colored, I used a fixative to seal the colors on the transparency so they wouldn't smear when adhering or adding more color.
The umbrella was colored with Garnet and I used Canary on the girl's dress, after I first used a Faber-Castell Big Brush marker in yellow on it. The Canary added lighter highlights to the dress for a more realistic look.
The rest of the colors were either Faber-Castell Gelato's or Big Brush Pen's. The ribbon I chose was not as bright as I wanted, so I used more Canary paint on it. It pulled the yellow in the dress out more.
I felt like the red cardstock I used to frame the transparency and base of the card needed a little more, so I used some Garnet on the edges. The jewels are Siam Jeweled Inspirations. I am completely addicted to the Jeweled Inspirations... did you know they already have adhesive on the backs of them? All it takes is some added heat, which I do with my heat gun, and they are adhered! Just make sure to hold them down with something... I use a pencil, tweezers or handle of a paint brush.
