Cameo Marci

This week in La La Land we had an inspiration photo of Vintage Cupcakes to play with. I went a little left of centre with this one and decided to use the cameos on top of the cupcake as my inspiration and I decided to do Marci as a cameo. I searched high and low for some hints and tips but couldn't find any so I took a deep breath and gave it a go! This is what I LOVE about challenging myself - I am REALLY happy with the result and would never have done this without the challenge!
Some tips if you want to try this yourself...
- stamp or print your image with pale lines, you want your shading to create the cameo effect. Some pale lines showing are OK as they add definition.
- start shading light and build up as you go, many areas here have been left white
- print off a cameo picture to help guide you with the look if you feel you need it, I had two different ones sitting by my side.
- make the background a deeper colour so it gives your image more POP and dimension
- Experiment and HAVE FUN!

Don't forget to pop over to our BLOG where you can check out inspiration from my amazing teamies and remember La La Land Crafts also have a Facebook Page HERE and La La Lands Facebook Group HERE. We love seeing your amazing creations using La La Land Stamps and Dies too.
