Morning GloryPosted: June 2, 2015
It seems like an age since I sat down and ‘played’ with stamps and ink. I pulled out the ‘Trumpet Song’ stamp to try it with distress stains. Last week’s card with the same stamp was done with Memento inks and retained more of the definition in the stamp. Using distress stains I lost some of the veins and details in the flowers and leaves so I painted some extra colour onto both then added some veins with the pen tip of the distress marker. The image was stamped on watercolour paper which had some masking fluid splatter on it (that’s what makes the tiny white dots). I painted some distress stain around the image fading it out with water at the edges.
Kathy Racoosin is doing her second 30 day Coloring Challenge during June so I hope to participate every few days at least. Although my method of colouring today is one of my favourite techniques I hope to take the challenge to use some techniques and mediums that I haven’t used in a while.
