This gesso piece I died the gesso with a few drops of cool caribbean reinker *Oh and I'm low!!! someone save a girl and sell me some cool caribbean reinker STAT*. I stamped the image while it was still tacky because it has a lot of texture and I was afraid I wouldn't get a clear image if I waited. I'll try stamping on dry later. The this morning after it was all dry I colored with tombow markers. I also stamped over lightly with a background stamp and gray ink. Then edged with a silver leafing pen. I really enjoyed it.
The next card is inspired by Michelle Zindorff's creations. I stamped the flower on watercolor paper and watercolored it, then covered the whole thing with versamark pen and embossed with clear. The next step was to brayer inky blue Vivid! ink over the piece. I used a sponge too and the sponge to remove the ink from the image. I edged this one with silver leafing pen too.
Stamp Credits, the flower stamps are from a Stampin' Up! set that Tracey gave me. The script on both is the same French Script Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms.
