Hanging out at Neat & Tangled's Birthday Bash again, this time at the Little Tangles technique challenge.
This card incorporates a few techniques: watercolouring with Distress Inks, masking, highlighting and resist embossing.
I stamped Dreams onto white card, and covered the banner with Versamark pen and clear embossed so that it would resist any colour. Then I stamped the flower heads onto the card and masked them with spare paper while I applied Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord Distress Inks with a water brush, varying the intensity of the colour. With the mask still in place I stamped Field of Sky in Chipped Sapphire randomly over the background. Then I drew some stems and stamped a couple of leaves. After I removed the masks the flowers looked a bit flat so I added a little pale grey shading to give them a bit of depth. I also added some white gel pen highlights to the stamens and leaves. I mounted the piece onto dark blue card, then onto a 148mm sq card so that there was white space either side.
I'm also entering this into Simon Says Monday Challenge, which is DOTTY.
