I sprayed some blue ink on my kraft mat and then spritzed some water on it, swished my paper thru it for the "water" on the bottom of my white 12x12 paper.
This background started white. I stamped light green pigment ink with a background stamp over the entire surface. Came back with black stazon ink and a script stamp. Was a little dark, so I swiped some gesso overtop the whole area with a palette knife.
This background: sponged using a clock stencil. Added some lime green tissue paper.
Fall is in the air! The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design! The did a fabulous job! They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones. Dry-brushing technique. The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.
We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!
I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.
I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up. Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
