Since it's Friday, it's time for a new release at The East Wind. This one features Unky's new character, Rainbow Raver Anj Hoola Hoop.
This particular image is called Kitty Kitty...love it! I coloured Anj with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut her. I then matted her in black cardstock because I love that look and the way it creates contrast with the background. Ang and her sweet friend were popped up on foam tape and set aside to continue their cuddle while I created the background.
I covered a #8 manila tag with a scrap of yellow and pink music paper. Stencilling was added with Magenta Archival ink sponged through TCW's Tiny Circles template. A different pattern was added using Black Soot through the TCW's Well Rounded stencil. A strip of black and white dotty paper was inked on the edges with Black Big brush pen before being chopped into shorter lengths and added to the left side and bottom. Another little triangle was added to the top right for balance and flow.
The sentiment was computer generated, coloured in with a pink Sharpie, and matted in black. These words were popped up on foam tape for dimension and to create a shadow. A small heart was die cut from dotty pink DP as well as black. They were offset, faux stitched, and popped up on foam. Three tiny black buttons were threaded with pink and adhered to the bottom left corner of the tag. The final touch was to add a topper of green ribbon with a bit of sparkly gold in it. This pulls the green from the image into the background and draws the eye to the top of the tag. The eye looks for similarities/repetition so it goes to the image first and then moves through the tag to find that other snippet of green.
Thanks for visiting today. Anj, Kitty Kitty, and I appreciate your fine company. When you get a chance, pop over to our Facebook group to see other examples using this fun new The East Wind release. It's always so fun to see how differently the DT interpret and showcase the same image.
