Things are looking good I have actually blogged twice today. This is one of my favourite past times creating magical scenes. This one I used the brayer for the background, I am new to using this tool so please excuse the lines.. lol. Using Ranger Adirondack inks and Distress inks. I used Wild plumb then used Honey and Mustard for the moon with a little bit of Marmalade. The hills are done using Stonewashed and Stream. Fairy stamp is by Lavinia as is the mushrooms and stars. The leaves and twigs are by Inkylicious Stamps.. have to admit I do love their stamps. They are quite firm and leave a much nicer stamped image no double lines if you press too hard. This and most of my scenes are produced using watercolour paper much nicer to blend on.
I used a white gelly pen to add depth to the branches and mushrooms.
It has been some time since I last wrote on my blog. Time goes way too fast and this is the last place I find myself at. I am enjoying working with inks and stamps especially using scenic stamps. I have used here a mixture of varied stamps, Sheena Douglass mermaid on the rock with Inkylicious branches and grasses. Inks I used Tim Holtz distress ink for the background and to colour the mermaid. I also used Spectrum noir sparkle pens clear shade as it suits all over any part, no need to change colours. The shimmer does not show very well on this card which is a shame for it does look much nicer in person. I hope to post more of these scene cards on here, I also upload them to my pinterest pages. So until the next time...
