More Brown, Brown & Brown!

I really loved the monochromatic coloring of the E Copic shades; however on this one I decided to go with the easy challenge for MiC, as I wanted the background to be in color! This is a new digi stamp for me, Tap dancing-heel click, but one I have been eyeing for a while. The other images I used were also from Make it Crafty, and they were from the Theater Elements Collection.
This time I colored the dancer in the E30 series of Copic markers.

 I wanted the sky to look like a storm just had gone through and the buildings to be glowing from the sun's reflection-and also look like a stage background. The sky is BVs, the buildings YR and Y, and the stage floor E70s.
 I cropped the two background images and grouped them in Word. Then I made the dancer--I'll call him Fred- I made Fred the size I wanted to fit onto my standard-sized card, just large enough so his hat would be a little bit off the top of the background. I tried to leave a white outline when cutting him out, and popped him up with foam dots to make him stand out a little more!
 For the sky, I tried spritzing it with champagne-colored spritzer, but it was somewhat clogged and did not spray too well at'll see. I like the overall effect it had on the card though!
  I tried to just get it on the sky and buildings, not the stage; and here's a pic of the background image before Fred danced onto it!

 This was also a fun one to color up, thanks for looking!
