Are you getting tired of salted and alcohol ink cards?
Here's something different.
I've stamped and heat embossed the Everything Flowers Background stamp
from Hero Arts, then colored the flowers with Gelatos.
I pressed the tip of the Gelatos metallic colors onto the flowers and spread the
color with my finger.
The color is very much like chapstick and spreads smoothly.
Kind of like making pretty mud pies!
I added some non metallic Gelato to the centers of the flowers.
I added some shading by putting the Gelato on my palette and picking up some color
with an Aqua Painter.
For the background, I used a Pitt Artist Big Brush pen in May Green to scribble on my palette,
picked up the color with an Aqua painter and did a wet on wet wash around the colored flowers.
(BTW, it's so easy to make a palette for markers and ink by
laminating a half sheet of white cardstock.)
I'm entering this in The Flower Challenge #11
ADD A SENTIMENT
I have shiny embossing and the metallic Gelatos also shine.
Here's a closer look of that shine.
I stamped 2 small pieces at the same time since this is such a large stamp.
I watercolored this one with Zigs.
Quite a different look!
Both sentiments are from the Thoughtful Messages set at SSS.
This set was a birthday present from my dear friend Loll.
I can see that this set will get a lot of love.
Thanks again, dear friend!
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
