This fortnight's ABC challenge is I for Inspire Us, subtitled 'Show us your Style'.
I toyed for a while with what and whether to submit to this. Then I was asked to make a card for a friend who's moving away. This is 100% 'out of my head', and that's what made me feel it was right for this challenge. No sketches, no inspiration photos or words, no colour palette. It also feels it right to make it ABC exclusive!
Mostly inked (with brushes and sponges) over masks, with the birds mostly coming from Clarity's Birdtable Kit. The piper was the stroke of genius of a friend, and was taken from a photograph drawn in over a light box. It's a single layer, plus the green mat, onto an A4 card blank.
