Green silhouettesPosted: March 10, 2011
I decided to play around with some greens to create this card. To me it has a bit of a misty rainforest look.
I created the stamped panel first on certainly celery cardstock as follows:
- flick masking fluid around
- stamp branch in versamark
- stamp branch in artichoke
- emboss in clear
- brayer celery ink over whole panel
- brayer artichoke ink on left side of panel
- remove masking fluid
Although I didn’t used black on the stamped panel, black looked better than artichoke for framing the panel.
Edited to add: Several people asked about Masking fluid. It is a liquid you will find in the paint section of the art store. You use it to paint in the areas of a painting that you want free of paint, such as white highlights. When you have finished applying the surround paint you peel off the masking fluid and the paper underneath is untouched. I bought it to use when watercolour painting but it is very handy with stamping as well
Thanks for dropping in today.
