Mixed Media project - Blue Hair Don't Care

I have been fascinated with how the comic book artist color black hair.
Wonder Woman has blue highlights and i have thought for some time that it is cool.
If you scroll through my past posts, i tend to try to do the blue highlights.
 
Today is one of those days..


I am using a Sweet November Vault image called, Phoebe Tadpole

She's adorable!
Phoebe Tadpole original image has lovely long legs,
i chose to only use the top half of the image and the shoes.
I didn't want to go beachy, like the original image..
because i want to put this up in my craft room.
So i chose a Wonder Woman theme.
I gave her a "tiara" (miniature hair comb- jewelry from Michaels)

Dies used:
Marianne Designs - Stars
Wonder word - created with a font on Cricut Explore

It is "hard" to see the original background paper, because as i have said before in my posts, ink jet digital paper reacts to water.
I shook Lindy's Magical Shaker paint powder on the digital paper and then sprayed it with water.
Then i used a decoupage glue, to seal the project, that was also acrylic based and changed the background even more.

See if you can tell which paper in this pack helped me achieved this look!

Mixed Media -Weekend Project - Joy

This weekend, Sweet November artist, Amy Young, released
her 3 Tadpole girl images as digital stamps in the 7 Kids Craft Store for one week only.
All you have to do is what her coloring videos to fall in love.

I chose to color up Sweet November - Polly Tadpole during the coloring video
I wanted to do something other than a card and went with a mixed media theme.
I just wanted to use her upper body and feet.
This is what i came up with...



I always start my base using some of We Are 3 Digital Paper.
I really love digital paper because it reacts with water and the paint base doesn't
I have used several products:
Brown stain - Lindy's Magical Shaker - Antique Bronze
Black distress ink
Distress Oxide - Broken China
Metallic Black Molding Paste
Black and White Acrylic paint

We Are 3 Digital Paper- Tones of Gray - available here.

Fairy Forager
Forest Scene
