Finally I did get my very neglected Copic markers out and had a play with the Autumn Poppy sheet and the Autumn edges. The border is stamped onto canvas paper which was inked up with Distress stains and plain black stamping. Only gave some white pencil accents. I like these orange lampions.......and the rosebuds......
The 2nd card is showing the beautiful artichokes which you can find on the Mellow Fruitfulness sheet which is recently launched. A sheet which you can use on several occasions.
I've made a background using shadow paint inks, they are similar as Ecoline. They have vibrant colors and I had fun playing with them. Just wet a water based paper with a water mister and apply randomly 2 or 3 colors of the ink with a large brush. Than hold your paper vertically and mist again and just let the inks run where you want them to go........it's an addictive technique and also very simple. My son Daniel(9 year) was also playing along......so during the holidays we created lot and lots of backgrounds.
Now onto another gorgeous sheet ' Mellow Fruitfulness', like that name!
I've stamped and masked the artichokes and coloured them with pencils. I've used lots of layers for the background with the text fragment of the Eccentric Edwardian sheet, the large corner swirl from the Butterfly dreams and a Crafters stencil called Blazonry.
I've coloured the artichokes with pencils and gave some white gel pen accents. I've sponged the stencil with Distress ink and applied some pearl powder accents over it. I've embossed the swirls with embossing powder.
Do you like trying this technique? Just take out your fluid inks and let them flow! Any questions....please don't hesitate to ask them, I will be happy to answer.
