Topic: Sketch Challenge
I wanted to try out more of the watercolor stamping technique and started in with OWH sketch 107:
When I did this technique before, I stamped a slew of them all at the same time and all with just two stamped images. This time I worked on a single image and made the card from it before moving on to the next sketch. This kept all of them looking different from one another.
For this one I stamped the image on watercolor paper with a stamp I had inked with three greens in Distress Ink pads. The image was misted with water to get it to blend and I dried it with the heat gun. I then used three colors of Distress Ink pads on my craft sheet and spritzed that with water. The image paper was dipped into the wet ink and dried - several times - to get the distressed and splotchy look I was aiming for. The final step was to ink the image with black and stamp over the original image.
I trimmed it down to the specifications in the sketch and drew in a black fine border.
The rest is just layering of papers and the addition of a strand of twine knotted in place.
