I colored this image for the shear joy of coloring.  It has sat around my craft room for quite a while…just waiting for the perfect place to end up.  The background is the front of a card that I received in a swap.  When I was looking for things that might pair with this image…the card front just worked and felt right.

I trimmed it down as much as I could, then tried several layers to go under it.  Ultimately, I ended up making the checkerboard area around in Silhouette…even going so far as to determine the size of checks!  I used the “striped-check” in the original card front as a guide…to, hopefully, make it look like it all went together!

The final step was deciding how big the black card base should be…and if I wanted to center the whole thing and have Rena partially off the card…or center it, keeping Rena entirely on the card.  As you see, I decided on the later!

Details:

  1. Card Base:  Black card stock, 6.5 x 5.
  2. First Layer:  Print and cut, black and white check frame created in Silhouette.  I did use a file I purchase, heavily modified/integrated.  I colored the edge with Copic W-9.
  3. Second Layer:  This is all the color (including the red stripes on the top and bottom.  This was a card front I received in a swap.
  4. Image:  Rena Devil from Zury Artsy Craftsy, colored with Copics.
