I had a couple of quieter days this week.... so I took the opportunity to have another play with my Distress Inks... I'm determined to master this colouring medium... and know I'm getting better.... but not quite there yet I don't think!
I stamped LOTV Fairies in Stocking onto watercolour paper... then enjoyed myself colouring and adding touches here and there.. I think I've managed to get some depth of colour which is what I was aiming for.. I used Pumice Stone and a touch of Black Soot for the shading. The sentiment is from LOTV too. I used my floral oval Nestie for the image.... then liberally Frantaged.... (oh how I love that stuff!) I added a print out of some sheet music that I'd 'vintaged'... and a little bit of woven hessian type stuff that was lying around in my drawer. I also distressed and 'stickled' the edges of the music.. put it all on some fabulous Pion paper, layered onto Kraft... added a few enamel dots... and called it done... I was in danger of getting carried away.
Hope you're enjoying my practising as much as I'm enjoying playing! There's nothing like having a bit of quiet time to recharge. I just wish I'd been able to get a better photograph.... there's barely any natural light today so I used my Ottlite... which on photos can wipe out the colour if it's too close.
I'd really love to hear what you think of my DI attempts.. so do say hello...
Big hugs.... and have a good weekend all..
