Little Blue Owl #106
This was the sample I created to show them the finish of the Distress Paints. I started by created a muted background using pinks and blues and blending them with my cloth. I then added some pattern detail by adding paint through some masks and once dry I drew around the banner mask with a fineliner pen.
Next I stamped with the woodware viva Le Plume stamp using a blue ink to create some texture in the background.
Next I stamped my Woodware owl onto the background. It was very pale so I decided to stamp the owl on a separate piece of card and coloured him by using Distress Inks and applying with a waterbrush to give a watercolour effect.
finally I added my greeting - which is from Kaisercraft.
It's a lovely softly shaded piece - I was really pleased with the finished effect. I'll be showing a bit of this technique at my demonstration on Saturday in store 10-4 which is to celebrate our 2nd birthday event!
