This design was inspired by the artwork of John Nieto. He creates beautiful, colorful paintings! Here's how I made this quick, colorful card.
- I colored direct to rubber with markers onto the bison image, overlapping to blend right on the stamp. I stamped onto glossy - that's why the colors are so vivid. I cut out the image and set aside to work on the background.
- For the background, I also worked on glossy. I laid masking tape down to shape the hill. I started at the top of the scene with the darkest blue and a stylus, and pulled color. NOTE: I turn my card so that I can pull the color from the top to the bottom - so I'm actually coloring horizontal. I find that works best for me.
- Next, I cut off a small part of the buffalo's legs so it would look like the snow was deep. I adhered him down and laid a piece of scrap paper at the bottom of his legs. I sponged the lightest blue so it would look like he was walking in snow.
- For the beautiful large background image, I colored direct again with the markers and stamped on glossy.
- For the inside image I colored directly to rubber again and stamped on regular matt card stock.
