Berry ThankfulPosted: September 12, 2016
These berries are from the new Magic of the Season release but the season does not necessarily have to be winter. I have given a autumn feel to my card today to link in with the Canadian Thanksgiving season in October. I paired the ‘berry kissed’ stamp with the ‘script’ background stamp and stuck with green, orange and brown colour choices.
I began with a piece of hot pressed watercolour paper splattered with masking fluid. (The white dots on the leaves are a result of the masking fluid) I inked the stamp with crushed olive, mowed lawn and barn door distress stains then stamped it with the misti. I let that layer dry then inked the stamp again this time with markers so I could be more selective about where I put the colours. After stamping I blended the dark and lights with a wet paintbrush creating some shadow and dimension on the image. I painted around the image using a watercolour pencil as my ‘paint’. Once the panel was dry I splattered some dark brown stain and and swiped the edges with stain also.
I stamped the script stamp onto the card base in vintage photo ink and blended some areas with water.
