Vibrant Retro Flower (by Shirley)

Hello everyone,  I hope you are doing well.

I've been working with Sketchy Doodle Landscape this month.  These stamps are great fun and seem to beg for vibrant colours but they are also great in subdued designs.


The background was created with Dylusions Inks along with white Brusho crystal inks.  It's not difficult - I spray Dylusions inks, spritz with water, sprinkle a tiny bit of white Brusho powders and spritz a little with water (if needed) again.   Once the background was dry I over stamped with a fragment from Abstract Fragments.  I embossed the main images from Sketchy Doodle Landscape with black, coloured with Dylusions ink (using a brush and water on a craft mat).    'With Love' is from Mackintosh Sentiments.

Thanks for your visit and have a great day.

  9. I love the way your flower picks up the aqua & deep mauve whereas the background's 'mauve' is more of the reddish purple kind. The fragment stamping in the background adds a lovely bit of texture. The Mackintosh sentiment is a perfect compliment - especially with the two black dots under the 'o' echoing the dotted details of the Sketchy Doodle Landscape stamped images.
