Happy New Year!! Wow, this past month has been a blur with the holidays and my daughters' birthdays. I've been busy with family and so ready to dive into the Kindred Stamps January release!! And, boy, is it awesome! Please make sure you read all the through to the bottom to find the details for the Blog Hop and how to win some Kindred cash!!
I am honored (yes, honored) to have gotten to work with two new 6" x 8" stamp sets -- Royal Throne and Heirs to the Throne. I will be showcasing my card makes for the former set today. (Be sure to subscribe below to be notified when I blog about the second set later.)
The Royal Throne set is comprised of 4 character images, 3 accessory images (if you include that incredible throne), and a mixture of mix and match sentiments, that could feasibly create up to 7 different sentiments. The script used in a few of the sentiments is beautiful, and a few of them could easily be used with the sister set Heirs to the Throne.
I chose to focus on the character images themselves and created four different cards. I will share the Copic colors I used for each of the images below the card images, but, as always, comment below or email me if you have any specific questions.
The Dwarf: Hair/Boots E49 E29 E57; Goblet Y28 YR23; Clothes E47 RV69 R59 Y28
The King: Hair E43 E50 Y21; Crown Y00 Y28; Clothes Y28 C3; Boots/Leggings/Sash E49 E79
The Knight: Hair E33 E43 Y21 E50 E53; Armor Y00 Y28 E40 E71 E47 W5
(And my favorite card from this set is below. The throne is awesome, and the perfect size to stand alone or with another character. It really wasn't too terribly cumbersome to color, but I wanted to vary the tones in the swords. So while it did take some time, it wasn't bad. I did start by coloring the entire throne with a layer of W1, my lightest shade, and added swipes of the other colors until I was happy. I hope this tidbit helps.)
The Queen: Hair E43 E50 Y21; Skin E00 E000 R00; Dress YG67 G99 E33 Y28
Throne: E15 W1 W3 C2 C3 C5 (The brown tone creates the illusion of rust on some of the swords.)
