I know I have shared this on FB already, but thought I'd add it to my blog too and give you some details...
I used the gorgeous stamp set from Prima Marketing, designed by the very talented Jamie Dougherty.
I wanted to experiment with my new Brushos, like a typical art/craft addict I had to buy the whole set hehe.
Once I had created my background, using warm colours, (Crimson, Orange and Dark Brown), I then stamped the bird. I used Potting Soil from the Archival range, but wishing now I had used a Distress one as some of the lines are a little to harsh for my liking, but live and learn, right? ;) I think if I could have blurred some of the lines out with water it would have had a better effect.
Once everything was layed out and stamped, I then went over with my Sennelier watercolours, to add depth and give it some definition away from the Brusho 'splatter'. I only have a small palette of colours but I find I can mix near enough anything with them, but they're quality is brilliant!
After all this was done, I touched up with a fine white pen give back some shape of the original design.
Speaking of watercolours, have you seen the series that have come out from Prima Marketing? I want the whole set.. they look like sweet little boxes deliciousness! Just trying to work out how I can justify getting them when I already have a set of amazing colours and recently purchased the Brushos too!! Any ideas...? ;) No doubt I'll cave at some point whether it is now of in the future, so may as well get now... Does that work?? haha
Just want to say such a huge thank you for all your congrats to me on yesterdays post, you all make me smile so much :)
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
