Hello again! Can you believe it is September again! Time for another fab challenge over at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps. This time the theme is pretty pastels. I have chosen this cute image called ‘The Cat’s Whiskers’. Such a sweet stamp that is really versatile.
I decided to get my Inktense pencils out this time. I forgot how fun it was to play with watercolour paper and these amazing pencils. I applied the colours by dipping my paint brush in water, touching it across the tip of the pencil and applying straight to the watercolour paper. Once I finished this, I added some texture with white gesso and a stiff dry brush. The bow was done with a silver Wink Of Stella pen. I finished up by adding a little more depth to the cat with by Prisma pencils. I can never resist the beautiful, vibrant result they offer.
I struggled to find the right background paper for this image so I decided to make by own by scribbling with my Neocolour II crayons and then messing it all up with a watery brush. Gee its fun being messy. The neocolours are super bright so I toned it all down with some more gesso. The end result is a mixed media card. Something very different for me but very fun to do.
Have you every had a play with Inktense or Neocolour crayons? Leave me a comment with the details!!! Would love to see some inspiration!!
