Oh Snap!

I just love these Girlfriends characters from AI (Art Impressions) – they crack me up!  And remind me of my friends and I 😉  Tracy MacDonald is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers.  Her blog, I Wanna Build A Memory, has such wonderful projects.   Make sure to stop over there and share some love from Scrapbook Expo!

What struck me most about this card is the layering and choice of colors.  Usually, cards created with these AI characters are bright colors, but I like how Tracy toned it down with browns to really let the characters be the focus.  And the pairing of the Polaroid frame with the film strip was a lot of fun here.  Those of us older than 20 can see the pun 🙂

Here’s a close up of her coloring with Copic markers:

I strive to have that coloring talent.  And I love it when designers share what color combinations they used.  Tracy used the following colors:

skin E000, E00, E11, R20, R30
hair E33, E35, YR23, Y21, E08, E93, E95, E97, E21, E23, E25, E27, N3, N5, N7, N9
clothing BG10, BG11, BG13, C00, C0, C2, V91, V93, V95, V99, YR20, YR21, YR23, E51, E53, E55
camera W1, W3, W5, N7

Thanks for sharing Tracy.  I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
