Greetings! Welcome to Preview Day 2 of Simply Betty Stamps’ latetst release…The Funky Potters! I didn’t play along yesterday, but with good reason. I combined yesterday’s image with today’s in one card! I’m so proud of myself, now that I can merge images together in Photoshop. I’m sure most of you have been doing that for years…but I really have such a hard time with computers. And it’s been forever since I took Photoshop in college. And I don’t even know what version that was! But enough about me and my computer schtuff…let’s get to Hermoine and Ginny!!!
Truth be told, I did not read the Harry Potter books…except for the 1st one. Wait! Don’t shoot! It’s not because I didn’t like them….I was in college (huh…seems to be a running theme today) when they came out, and I really just had to focus on my art. Reading for pleasure at that time was just not in the cards for me. I’ll pick them up again some time. I really will! So that’s why the colors are probably not what you would expect. But that’s what makes these images so great. Yeah, they’re perfect for Harry Potter stuff…but you can use them for other things too!
I used watercolor markers to color in my images, and chalk to fill in the background (thanks, Barb!). I stamped out my sentiment with an alphabet from Time Flies. A rip here and there, more chalk and some more use of the marker around the border. And some blobs of glitter. Done! I think it’s cute and snarky.
Please be sure to visit the Simply Betty Stamps blog and The Burtonesque Dolls blog to see more inspiration today, and the rest of the week. And remember, Friday is release day, when you can buy these babies for yourself! Please visit me again tomorrow when I will have another Potter preview and a brand new Burtonesque Dolls challenge! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
