Yep, me again!
Today I want to share an inky panel (yes inky...only a smidge of paint was used in the making of this piece!!)
8" square chipboard panel before I started in with the colour. Corrugated card...
cardstock stencil (Jenni Bowlin)
texture medium through a stencil too...
Once all the background bits were on and dry, I lightly sponged with gesso to give me an all white base to add the colour to. I used a mixture of Bombay Inks and Daler-Rowneys for this, two shades of green to begin with. I sprayed a little water and blotted some inks away to give the mottled effect. Once the greens were dry I went in with the most fabulous ink, silver pearl by Daler Rowney. All the silver effects you can see are that ink! You only need a little for the translucent shimmer, but then you can build up layers for a more opaque silver look. I haven't used this in an age, and can't fathom out why! Love it.
Anyway, I felt the greeny silver look needed a little more colour, so went for a bright red 'halo' circle!
Dash of Red by Claudine Hellmuth. This paint is versatile too...the edging is the same shade, just a thin layer so the colour is a more muted almost dark pink. I covered the cardstock with three layers of the paint to give the depth of red I wanted before stamping the text and punching out the circle. The Stampotique figure (Mela- possibly my favourite Stampotique) was then placed in front of her halo..
Hope you like it,
See you soon
Love Trish xx
