* Vera Lane Studio: Besties


This is my second  Vera Lane Studio DT project today. You can find the first one here.

This time I have a card using one of the older digi sets called Besties:

As usual, I coloured my girls with Copic markers and gave them some white Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut them and ran a black Copic marker around the cut edges to mask any cutting imperfections.
I  applied acrylic paints, in green and blue, with a brayer onto the background, then added some modelling paste through an Art by Marleen stencil. I spritzed some Dylusions ink sprays to bring out the texture of the modelling paste. Stamping was added around the background edges, and the outer edged inked with Ranger Jet Black Archival ink.
The girls were grounded with some black and white strips from the Circle and Stem set. I made two flowers using elements from the Pretty Little Houses collage set and used a sun from the Sunshine Collage sheet.
