I wanted to practice the layered stamping technique presented by Shari Carroll for the online card class Mask-erade that I took last week. I learned so much! Now to try to put it into action on my cards. Easier said than done, you know?
I thought the Mojo Monday sketch would be a perfect fit with the Sweet Posies stamp because of the circular shape of the flower bouquet. So here's my take #2 for the sketch.
I began with the white panel, stamping the image in black and coloring it in with Copic markers. Then I masked the flowers using a die cut circle of masking paper. I sponged Sahara Sand ink over the stencil and then stamped the sentiment.
I could have stopped there. But you know that I didn't, I wanted to layer some more! Using the Bokeh lights stencil, I added spritzing. The pearly shimmer is a pretty accent and texture IRL. Then I added a few splatters of ink mixed with water to pull in more color.
I have a long way to go with my coloring skills but I love to practice. Today is day 2 of the 30 day challenge held by Kathy Racoosin. She has mad coloring skills and great videos! I was really inspired by her color choices from day 1 for my flowers.
I'd love to hear from you about my posts yesterday and today. Both cards use the same sketch. Do you prefer the clean style or the mixed media look of the layered stamping? Inquiring minds want to know!
Find delight in your craft.
