On Mother's Day I allowed myself a bit of inky playtime with my ink dusters and some inkylicious stamps. I began by making a mask with a cd, cutting out the centre to make an aperture.
ink dusters, Memento and Adirondack ink and a mountain and valley stencil to create some hills and sky. After removing the aperture mask, I stamped the thistle with versafine tuxedo black around the edge of the circle. I stamped the rabbit in the same ink. Finally I inked up the middle-sized northern pine with Memento northern pine and espresso truffle, adding a 'shadow' from the rising sun using the ink duster pinched together at the end. A few highlights were added using a sakura gellyroll clear stardust pen, which you can see a little better here:
Flight of Dreams. I added tiny punched flowers and dots of distress stickles around the edge of the circle. The birds are from the set 'Prickly shrubs'.
If you aren't sure how ink dusters work, you can check out my video tutorials on Youtube. If you are heading to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC this weekend, be sure to visit the Inkylicious stand and take a look at all the new stamps. I wish I could be there myself!
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.
