Mixed Media style is getting popular, and I love it too.
This month, our assignment ink is VersaMagic Dew Drops.
Our John picked lovely spring-ish color combinations for us, and I was curious how they can be Mixed Media style?
Here's what I played.
|3 background colors Aloe Vera/Mango Madness/Thachet Straw|
|On Coated paper, DTP 3 colors ramdomly|
|Ink up background stamp (Hero Arts) with 3 background colors|
|stamp over the background|
|While ink is still wet, wipe some part with paper towel to scrap off some color|
|if your ink pad get muddy, wipe off on paper towel gently|
|Stamp Ferns (Penny Black) with Spring Pansy|
|Stamp Butterfly (Penny Black) with Memento Tuxedo Black|
|Using Brushstix, color butterfly wings with VersaMagic. Don't worry about outline at this stage.|
|Scrape off some color with dried Brushstix|
|Over stamp the butterfly with Brilliance Graphite Black|
|to make outline standout|
|Sorry, I forgot to take picture this stage, I again stamp background flower vine (Penny Black ) with Spring Pansy. Then, with Memento Marker, outline the part of background flower|
|After stamp the sentiment with Brilliance Graphite Black, DTP Brilliance Sunlight White lightly to background area to make it misty. Isn't it lovely?|
|Add edge shadow with Memento Tuxedo Black. I love Jumbo Dauber to make edging.|
After all thing dried, I applied thin coat of Creative Medium for finishing touch.
