Happy Saturday! Things have been so hectic I haven't been inking as much as I would like. I started creating something a few days ago and mucked it up. So this morning I sat down to follow the same creative path and see if I could finish it.
After it had dried I took a background stamp from Hero Arts which had never been inked up and in my collection for over a year at least and stamped it with black archival ink on the left. I then inked it up and repeated the pattern varying the height to create a garden. Of course I wasn't good enough to completely cover my background with black ink. I found another background stamp with a nice area of plain rubber and used that to ink in areas that weren't completely covered in black. I also used a blue water color pencil and added a hint of blue to the background.
I added a touch of gold shading on the edges of my flowers with the watercolor pencil and waterbrush.
I then came back in and stamped randomly a touch of script in black ink. I punched out baby butterflies to sprinkle across the canvas. For my white spots I put a dollop of white acrylic paint on my craft mat and gave it a nice dose of water. After I mixed it in I took a paint brush with a flat edge and covered it in watery paint and ran my finger over the brush to create a spray of white paint over everything. (I mean everything so you might want to move everything out of the way!)
I couldn't bring myself to cut down my image so my MIL is going to get an extra large card for Mother's Day :)
