I needed to make a Birthday card for my Brother, so went to Pinterest for some inspiration (won't say how much time I spent on there, lol!), and found this amazing card by Theresa Momber. I just loved the way she had given the hill some definition with copics. The scene had a masculine feel to it, and so I set about trying to produce something similar. Here is what I came up with.
ink dusters today, starting with squeezed lemonade in the middle, dried marigold around that, then wild honey and tea dye, finishing off with walnut stain at the edges. The hill was masked and coloured with wild honey and walnut stain. As my distress markers were on the table I thought I would try adding a bit of definition with those, which left a little bit of a line, so as I applied the Distress marker I used an ink duster to blend the edges, and was very pleased with the result. All of the stamps are from Inkylicious. I feel this is different enough from my inspiration to enter it into a challenge, so I am entering it into fashionable stamping challenges where the theme is 'surprise us'
Inkylicious on an off-cut from my first hill. I did both on Silk Art Card.
Hope you enjoy your New Year celebrations. We are off to a friends house later for our annual scrabble tournament and lots of good food. Enjoy whatever you are doing and Happy New Year. Thanks for looking!
