Copic Challenge #5

Hi everyone! This week, we have an Inspiration Challenge on the Copic Colour Challenge blog! Chris chose this awesome painting. I know there's a name for it with the three panels, but I'm going blank right now! Here's the inspiration painting.Can you see all the possibilities with this one? I still have another technique I want to try with this inspiration, but it may have to wait until later. This is my interpretation of this piece.I am so hooked on these fairies from Paper Makeup Stamps, it's not funny! Now I know how my friend, Cheryl, got hooked on the Tildas! LOL! These are just a blast to color! This fairy dancing in the rain is Emma. When I saw the inspiration piece, I immediately saw the great colors...red, blue, beige and light yellow. I started with that and colored my image. This image was done a long time ago when we were first given a look at this painting, and I had chosen my dp, Boxer from Basic Grey at that time as well. (This image was stamped on PTI white. I later noticed the dp was printed on cream! So I just sponged some Creamy Caramel ink over the top to tone it down so it matched better.) I just yesterday put it all together, because I wasn't sure what I was going to do from there. I thought that the other interesting thing about this painting were the panels, of course. So, I cut three pieces of the dp to mimic the panels, but had to mount them in the opposite direction to accommodate my image. I wanted a big flower, but with a little more interest. I have been seeing people using jewelry-making pieces on their cards and picked up this silver thing...I don't know what it's for, but I thought I could put something in it. This glitter dot fit perfectly and I layered it onto two primas. The sentiment that goes along with this image is also from PMS called Dance in the Rain. (The nice thing about the sentiments from PMS is that they come in a small and large size. Love that!) I couldn't fit it on the front, so it had to go inside, but I found this Embrace Happiness sentiment from PTI's Mixed Messages. I liked the two paired together. Here's the inside of the card as well as a closeup of the flower. I should have glittered up the flower, too!












Whew! Long post...sorry about that! I was never good at summarzing a story! Well, that's it folks! Please stop by the Copic Colour Challenge blog and play along! You have all week to enter your inspiration creations! Thanks for stopping by!

Triptych...is the style of seperating into three panels....but not sure of the painting name itself. Great job in capturing painting on your card...
