... well, a leaf of an old dictionary in this case.
I've managed to go on a crafty splurge this weekend, so this is the first of a few cards to get posted today. I won't bore you with the details, but suffice to say my crafting this weekend was restricted to a handful of stamps and my tins of colouring pencils, and that seems to have had a positive effect. One - I've managed to produce some artwork! Two - I really feel that I'm starting to get the hang of this colouring in lark and am producing things I'm proud of. Three - Spectrum Noir pencils are great - IMHO
Until not so long ago I veered away from buying open line stamps, because I didn't feel competent to do justice to them, so feeling able to tackle something like this beautiful Clarity Columbine flower is somewhat of an achievement for me.
I stamped it up in either Coffee or Potting Soil archival on to an old dictionary page, and coloured it in using this week's palette at Color Throwdown. I then further distressed the page by gently tearing the edges and inking them up with Tea Dye distress ink. Last but not least I layered it up onto a background made using the 'shaving foam' technique.
