CS Designs A mask...


This is my second post for today.  I am still on my color kick and using an image from CS Designs, I created a colorful mask.  On their "Art with no boundaries" challenge blog they have a challenge going on right now called "The Eyes have it."  I must say the creations that these ladies produce over there are stunning. 

Well, here's my creation using one of Chris' beautiful mask.

I wanted to really make the eyes stand out because it is a challenge about eyes.  I printed out two copies of the mask image and cut the eyes out of one of them.  I them colored it up, added some glass glaze over the circles and popped it onto the other image.  Prior to doing this, I colored the eyes using Copics B05.  I also cut out the lips and added glass glaze to them.  I didn't want to color the face, because I think it makes the eyes stand out even more by not doing so.  I added my own sentiment "A mask can never hide what the heart wants the eyes to reveal."  I then added some bling dots and colorful dp and cardstock.  That is  it!  I really love how it turned out.  I think the eyes are haunting yet beautiful.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

  2. Hi Candy, I love what you have done with my Solitaire Mysterious Butterfly, and your coloring does make her eyes stand out beautifully. It gives her a sense of mystery. I also love the sentiment, so appropriate for your card. Great minds must think alike, because although a little different, it reminds me of one of the ones in a new Solitaire sentiment series I am currently working on. Thank you for playing along in The Eyes have It challenge at Art With No Boundaries, it's always such a pleasure to see what you do with my designs.
