Shimmery colouringPosted: July 12, 2016 | |
Kathy Racoosin’s 30 day colouring challenge continues and, although I haven’t coloured everyday I am enjoying focusing on different colouring techniques. I used a mix of brusho and liquid metals for this card. The brusho colours are vibrant and the liquid metals sparkly so the combination is just like the shimmery butterflies I created for my journal page.
I started with an outline image embossed in gold then mixed a little turquoise brusho with platinum liquid metal to paint the petals. I also mixed cobalt blue with platinum and added touches of the darker blue to some of the petals. The flower centres were painted with a mix of liquid metal yellow gold and orange brusho and the leaves with a mix of yellow gold liquid metal and leaf green and cobalt blue brusho. I have coloured this stamp, ‘Glee’, using another technique which I will share later in the week once I have turned the panel into a card.
