Black, White and Grey #116
I started by covering my card with two different black white and grey backing papers. I added a ripped edge on the bottom backing paper and added some black ink. I edged the card piece in a little black ink too. I then stamped my happy happy stamp on the background.
I stamped my Hero Arts stamp (G2812 Woman in Profile) onto a separate piece of card using Black Memento ink. I darkened up the black pieces with my fineliner black pen. I then used my Promarker blender and Promarker Frosted Leaf to add some outlining around the lady and the postmark and then also around the border. I tried to blend the grey shade using the blender. As a final touch I used the chisel edge to run a border around the outside of the panel.
It's surprising that just that little bit of shading makes her and the postmark look three dimensional and raised up from the background
I then mounted the whole piece onto black and onto a 5x7 card
Not quite mastered the blending yet - need more practice!
