Love You to the Moon and Back
The August FB challenge for Faery Ink calls for "Creatures" which includes animals, aliens and mythical creatures. There are a number of gorgeous digis at Faery Ink that fits the bill, but I really love this one called Howling Moon. I've colored the image primarily with Copics and added details (especially the fur) with Prismacolor pencils. My original plan was not to fussy cut but my attempt at a colored background was an epic FAIL! I think it was serendipity though, because after being forced to remove the offending attempt with my trusty scissors, I found what I consider the perfect background DP from Memory Box. The warm colors complimented my coloring and the pattern created a magical Fall scene, don'tcha think?
I tried printing the wings on vellum, but for some reason it wasn't successful. I thought I'd used my laser printer in the past, but after several attempts had to settle for copy paper. That did make them seem at least a little lighter, though. Here's the dimensional shot. The sentiment was computer generated and popped as well. I considered embellies but thought the double matting was all it needed. Gotta say, I love how this one came out and it makes me a bit anxious for cooler weather and the gorgeous colors of Autumn.
