Hello once again. A new challenge is starting at The Alphabet Challenge. Meg is the host and she has chosen the theme of ‘Woodland Flora or Fauna‘ as we have reached the letter ‘W’. Here is my card:
It appears I’ve been in an inky and messy playing mood…..
The image of the hare from Indigo Blu was my first thought for the challenge theme, and I feel lends itself to a more fluid and colourful background as opposed to a clean and simple card.
I used Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers in the Distress Ink line – and just went for it! Once the ink was on the glass mat, I added some water, smooshing that card down in there. Sometimes I added water to the card, and sometimes I used a piece of packaging and added to the card that way, so I could control – just a little – where the colour went.
I tried to create some lines within each colour, but tried not to mix the three colours together too much – going for a grass and sky background – if you squint a little I think it works! 🙂
Anyhoo, once I was happy with the background, and it had dried completely, I then stamped the hare image – using my Misti as I had used the textured side of the water-colour card – and stamped it probably about 3 or 4 times to get a crisp and complete image.
I managed to find some green/teal card with some shine for one of the layers, and stuck them all together as you see.
The sentiment – love this sentiment – is from the same stamp set, stamped onto another piece of water-colour ink smooshing card I didn’t like the look of originally – and added with some foam squares.
I hope you can come and join us, following our theme of course, and I hope to see you in our gallery. xx
