Two cards today, each what I would class as a little distressed. Yes there is lots of daubing mainly in crumb cake and that lovely scraping of the edges with the scissor blade! Gosh it is messy!!!
The flowers are stamped in the rich razzleberry then punched out. I have stamped and punched three flowers. I have then cut each flower in half around the central part, putting them together to give twice as many petals...... no wastage. The centres have a been painted with wink of stella. I just love that pen!
I have stamped the stems and leaves in Pear Pizzaz and stamped off plus a few in stamped off crumb cake.
The layer of white hexagons is a discontinued product, I have added just a little scalloped lace, 2 scraps from my box of bits. I never throw anything away.
The stems and flower heads were stamped in versamark and left to dry. I then coloured with the watercolour pencils, even a very light scribble for the background then washed with water. I have highlighted each flower petal, parts of the stems and leaves with my chalk marker pen. I have to admit this is the first time I have been really impressed with the chalk marker. I would have used the whiteThat is also how I added the dots of white. The other 'dots' / spatter are made with a marker pen. This is also a first. I have read about this technique in a number of other blogs but this is the first time I have used it. I think its effective. What do you think?
