The third technique from day 9 was an experiment fail for me. It needed 'coated' cardstock and a wet dye ink neither of which I had. It also used florals and foliage that actually went together which I also did not have.
The technique was to ink the stamp, press to the coated cardstock and twist it slightly to create a painterly look. My stamps/inks would stick to the paper and not allow me to twist them so the images were clear and not in the least painted looking.
I stamped three daisy style flowers each in different ink. Then I stamped two leaf types.
we were then to use a fine black marker to sketch in some lines to lend a more hand designed look to the stamping - not so regimented. I stamped all three with different sentiments in black.
On the first two I drew a black border on the panel and mounted them to green cardstock.
I like this sentiment style better as it seems to suit the art better:
The third one got a solid sentiment block and a black background.
The black border negated the need for a drawn border on this one.
