Part of the fun of a Cirque du Soleil show is that your senses are completely overloaded. In keeping with that spirit, I used bright, contrasting colors and busy patterns. The layout for my card it the Technique by Design sketch from the current Technique Junkies Newsletter. The technique I chose to focus is Background Whimsy - Copic Method. I could NOT get any of my THREE white gel pens to work so I pitched them all in the garbage. Instead, I used white acrylic ink and mixed in a little bit of white acrylic paint to make it more opaque, and then painted my white highlights with a small liner brush. It was WAY easier than using a pen. I am so done with those white pens!
Have a great week. I have to be in work early tomorrow, so I have a little more time to pout about the weekend being over, then it's off to bed for me.
