Confirmand Melinda

The challenge this go around over at Make it Colorful is to "Color White" and even though I'm in the midst of coloring Christmas cards, I wanted to color something other than snow. So the image I've selected is Confirmand Melinda from Whiff of Joy and I've kept the card one layered and simple.


The border idea was inspiration taken from Deconstructing Jen as she always has the best one layer cards! To recreate the idea, I used a black pen to draw the border. Then I've placed a chippies in the upper corner and a Whiff of Joy miscellaneous sentiment in the lower corner. I also did a little bit of shading on the inside border to give it more interest.


For the white challenge, I used three different tones to create the white. The dress uses E40, E41 and E42 to create an antique look; the wings were colored with T3, T2 and T0 for a soft pure look; and finally the background has W2, W1, W0 and W00 to help "ground" it to the card. It was a fun to concentrate on the coloring this time than the card making. :D Make sure you come back later today as I'll have another project up!
