Hi everyone, I've been playing with some new stamps and a newish to me technique.
I swiped hickory smoke and iced spruce oxide ink pads across watercolour paper to get the streaky or windy effect in this background. I spritzed with water and used my finger to blend the colours a bit.
The image was stamped and embossed but when I coloured it in it was too dull over the greys.
I decided to restamp the umbrella and clothing onto regular white card so the colours were much brighter. I fussycut and glued them over the original image.
I used regular distress ink in weathered wood and black soot around the images to tie the layers together. I had a couple of sentiments in mind for this image but this one won out today! It's from the Encouraging words set by Wplus9.
I'm linking up to a few challenges.
At Addicted to Stamps & More it's make your mark. I used distress markers to colour the image.
At Simon Says Stamp Monday the theme is whatever the weather!
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday has a girl power theme.
At Craft Stamper Magazine it's anything goes, as long as you use stamping somewhere on your project.
At Inkspirational the theme is work. Holding that brolly looks like hard work to me lol!
Finally, thanks for hanging in there, I'm linking up to the challenge at
Word Art Wednesday where it's anything goes with an uplifting message or scripture.
