Morning everyone and hope you are
all going to be doing something scary this
Don't over indulge in the sweeties though!!
We are continuing our Penny Black
theme today and Dawn is here with us
to show you her lovely card!
Here's a card for this week.
I've made a simple card as this Penny Black
stamp is so beautiful and versatile, think
decoupage for the flowers etc. The butterfly
and banner I cut out and used on its own.
So to show this I focused on the colouring,
using Autumnal colours and a little bit
different to the normal way after seeing
Gee Assam do this. A great artist.
Stamp image in brown Memento
ink. Colour with alcohol pens.
Layer onto coloured card with some
ribbon sandwiched in and job done.
However, look at the colouring.
No blending at all.
Start with your lightest colour and let dry.
Then with your next colour go all over
your first layer but leave some showing
and move through your colours
to the darkest in the same way.
It does take time and thinking at first
but is easy to do without worrying about
blending yet still producing
a great finished look.
This was my first attempt and I hope to
improve with practice. Do have a try.
Dawn, it is absolutely beautiful!
I would find it very hard not to blend these
pens but this really works!!
