ReflectionsPosted: November 13, 2014
What started out as a brayering experiment turned into a simple peaceful scene, perfect for the sympathy card I needed this week. On top of some splattered masking fluid I brayered memento summer sky ink and memento London fog ink with overlap of the two colours in the middle. I positioned a frisket film mask across the panel and stamped trees in both grey and black ink. Next I positioned the mask over the stamping so I could stamp in the reflecting water. Because the frisket film is transparent I was able to line up the trees when I stamped them as reflections. I also added a bit of sponging at the edge of the water.
When I came to finish the card I tried adding some cord and ribbon but nothing was quite right. I settled on some very thin strips of the same black cardstock I used to mat the panel.
