My Time to Craft's challenge this week is "Musical Medley." The image I used is by Mo Manning. It's the second time I've used it. I much prefer the coloring of the guitar the first time around. That was a sunburst design of red fading to orange then yellow (1/31/11). I had modeled that after my husband's new guitar at the time. (Seems there is always a new guitar.) My husband suggested this color combo, but I'm not real fond of it.
I colored this with Copics and the swirls were made with a Magnolia die.I added Crystal effects to the pick guard.
I've been married to my best friend for 40 years and we raised three pretty great kids. It's been a wonderful life so far and now that our children are grown it's time to have fun. My husband just got into making guitars and I got into making cards. I started with stamping, but very quickly fell in love with coloring digital images. I'm learning a little more every day. My passion is coloring animals. I can't get enough of them. I also enjoy sewing, crewel and counted cross stitch, although my eyesight makes that a little difficult now. I just retired and need to add quilting to my activities. The fun never ends! If you would like to email me it's: email@example.com
This is Tom's first guitar. It's made out of mahagony. His second guitar kit just arrived. It's going to be a beauty. It will be made out of Koa and will have abalone inlays on the fret board and gold hardware. I can't wait to see it completed.
This is Tom's second guitar project. It's made from Koa and has abalone inlays and gold hardware. He let me pick how this one would look. The inlays are absolutely beautiful!
This is the third guitar that Tom made. You can't tell in the photo, but this has a much glossier finish on it. It took weeks and weeks to get the finish right. I believe this one is mahagony also.
