Color Me Monday #15

Posted by Amy Purdie on

This week's CMM I am taking it back to basics. I am using primary colors. 
They are the basic colors that we form such wonderful colors like orange, green, and purple!. They can communicate childhood, classic design, and even patriotism!
Since I am showing off our NEW JULY RELEASE Sassy Girls - Brave stamp set I thought I would use those primary colors to create a patriotic theme.

One of the girls from this set is very reminiscent to Rosie the Riveter! 
If you don't know who that is, well let me share a little history with you. Rosie the Riveter was a cultural icon of World War II, representing the women who worked in factories and shipyards during World War II, many of whom produced munitions and war supplies. These women sometimes took entirely new jobs replacing the male workers who joined the military.

The poster was based on a photograph taken of a young female war worker,  Naomi Parker. I wanted to make my card resemble the vintage poster which is why I chose primary colors!

I used Copics in:
Skin: E00, E01, E11, E08, R20, E33
Hair: E44, E79, Prismacolor Pencil PC947
Scarf: RV13, R22, R46, R35, R59
Shirt: B93, B95, B97, B39

 For my sketch, I kept it simple because I wanted the front to look like a poster.

 Don't forget to join us on Wednesday for Beth's FB LIVE where she uses the sketch and the color palette to create her own card!

Have a Sassy & Crafty Day!
