SugarPea Designs Sweet Sneaks Day 2

Welcome back for day two of the SugarPea Designs July Sweet Sneaks. The fun started yesterday, be sure to check out the adorable set we shared.  Today's set is just as sweet (the whole release is....I'm just sayin'!).  The stamp set is called Twinkle, Twinkle.


I had a lot of fun coloring this adorable scene. I used a few different coloring techniques which are really quite easy if you have patience and do a little planning. I used the pointillism (or stippled) for my night sky. It's simply adding layers of small dots with your copics, starting with your lightest color and then moving into darker tones. I used mixes of my blue greens, warm gray, and even some blues (the plurples). Here is the video link I used to learn how to do this for my night sky. 

I also added a touch of glitter to the moon and stars. 


I also took the time to piece up the curtains with some designer paper. I added a bit of texture to the bear with some blending solution and a scrap of towel. Before I colored up the girl, I dabbed the soaked fabric onto the colored bear. It's subtle, but it's another quick way to added texture and give him a more cuddly appearance. 

Some sweet glittery and stitched stars, sequins and twine finish the look. I stamped the sentiment in navy ink along the bottom of my frame.  I love this sentiment. 


Check out the details below.
