Greetings to all my lovely visitors :-) It is always humbling to know that people visit and enjoy my art.
This card is one I made for a child, using a sketch challenge, and I broke the mold and used a digi stamp!!
The stamp is by Designed 2 Delight and was a freebie over at Crafters Digital Art Centre, a new web 'community' - and it is really challenging to branch out!
I ended up printing this image out twice as one corner of the paper bent over the first time through, but this turned out to be advantageous, as I cut the bear out of the 'spoilt' copy and used the balance as a negative stencil to sponge the Tea Stained ink over him. I was not pleased with the result, so sponged some gold ink down his tummy, and then use water colour paints to add some dimension and shading.
The flower was painted with water colours, and then I masked the flower to sponge the sky, which did not work as I wanted, so then I added the clouds which redeemed it somewhat.
This panel was mounted with dimensional tape on to the corrugated card, and then added the spellbinders 'doodles' before mounting the whole on the patch-worked background.
This looked flat, so I added the gold kindy
glitz which lifted the whole .
I added the sentiment embossed with gold to finish the card.
I don't usually work with quite so much yellow, or quite such a strong yellow, but it was also intended for a colour challenge.... I am not sure that I completed that one successfully, but I gave it a go and stretched myself!
