And here it is my inspiration!
I just love this couple, they are so funny!
This elephant is really feeling blue, so what's better than a rainbow? Rainbows make everyone happy!
I firstly stamped the main image on a piece of Transotype Perfect Coloring paper and I sketched the rainbow. I firstly drew 7 stripes, but then decided to put less colors and I drew 5. I was inspired by my friend Alberto Gava (@loshakeratoalberto) who does amazing rainbow cards.
I then started coloring the elephant, using Neutral Greys. When I firstly started coloring, I saw many tutorials on Youtube and all of them suggested to buy Warm tones and Cold tones.I rarely use Cold Greys, they are too much "blue", too cold. If you want to invest in some new copic tones, I really suggest you the Neutral or the Toner series (one of them), because they are both the perfect shade between cold and warm.
Well, I then colored the monkey and then moved to my rainbow. I firstly started with light colors and then added more shading, especially under the elephant.
I tried to keep the card really simple, I didn't add a background. I only added a sentiment (which is sold together with the image): I white heat embossed it on a piece of black cardstock.
To complete the card, I matted the whole scene using black cardstock.
Thanks for stopping by, I really hope you will like the result!
