Bright Birdy #107
I started by working with yellow, blue and red tones of Distress stains - adding blotches of colour. I then generously spritzed it with water and used a cloth to blend some of the colours. Go gently - your card surface is saturated with water so easily damaged. Dry your card with a heat gun and then apply some more ink through masks to add some background patterns (this time I used the distress ink pads rather than the stains so I could get a more specific position and definition. i also did some outlining of my mask using a white gel pen too to add some different dimension. Next I stamped my main image - which is a Crafty Individuals stamp (Tea at Three). I then added lots of highlights using my white gel pen, including mirroring the border which I did again with a black fineline. I stamped my wording (Chocolate Baroque Artistic Affirmations) and then the swirls from the same set stamped in blue and yellow ink to add some extra detail.
finally I added a dash border with my fineliner and the gem accents.
Loving the colours on this piece!
