so first up Highland Dinner! a fabulous rubber stamp, that stamps with such beautiful detail!!l coloured up with my spectrum noir pens, popped a sentiment above, also one of Sheena's new stamps, now I've chosen to make a big tag with mine, but check out the rest of the DT samples as they have made some gorgeous stuff with this one!
Castle Ruins next, this one is beautiful, i chose a warm summer fresh day for my colours, but would love to try this as a night scene in blues and rich purples, add a bit of atmosphere!, fabulous!
now for a SPOOKY scene! I stamped my spooky tree first and covered up with drawing gum, then set to work creating a dark and mysterious background! i used a black Aquatint to simply darken some of the colours from the bright and beautiful Aquatints set, then added clouds using Sheena's cloud stencil and some hills in the background with the "As the land lies" stencil, i decided a fence was needed, so used the "landscape stencil next, flipped the stencil over to create the right side fence, then a fine fine pen for any extra definition. ...time to rub out the drawing gum! it worked! this stuff always amazes me. but because my background was so dark, i opted to keep my tree white, why?,
just because i can :)
lastly the wolf stamp! this was me playing from start to finish! i had no idea where i was going or if i would use the image to make a card. i just wanted to play around so i did, and this is whats great with all these products, no right or wrong way to use them, just play and create YOUR own art work. i stamped my wolf, coloured him with Aquatints, i didn't have a brown so made one up! the colours blend and mix beautifully together. mmmm but where next, so i just randomly starting flicking black around his face, and thought..ooh hello, i like that! so i flicked some gorgeous juicy raspberry colour next, so easy and simple!, liked it so much i created a simple background in the same way
