For the gradPosted: April 8, 2015
I’m playing with the whole “sailed off into the sunset and lived happily ever after” idea on this card. Of course it would have to be “flew off into the sunset” and although graduation is the end of one adventure it is usually the start of an even bigger one. Regardless I have a bird flying free over a watercoloured sky, painted of course with my new gansai tambi paints.
To create the watermarked look or ‘back runs’ I blended colours then let them dry a bit before adding more paint. I worked from blues to pink, red, orange then yellow in the bottom left hand corner. When it was all dry I stamped the two images and sentiment from the transparent ‘for the grad’ set.
