There’s still time to join our Monthly challenge at Lavinia stamps. The theme is buds and blossoms and you could be in with a chance of winning £40 of LS vouchers!
For today’s inspiration I have mainly used some of our gorgeous new release stamps.
Here are the stamps used:
I decided for a change to use acrylic paint both in the form of dylusions tub paint and posca paint pens. I also of course used my Stabilo pastel pencils and some ink pads.
Here’s how it evolved:
I blended the paints with a little white.
I used gesso through a die cut mask to create a circle for the moon.
It’s important when adding detail to the moon to use the same colour tones as the sky. As I was using pastel pencil I also used spray fixative on top to seal it. I used a reference picture for the moon shading.
I wanted the tree to be mainly in the misty background so I stamped it very lightly using grey and brushed a little paint over it in places.
I used make up brushes to apply inks on top of the acrylic paint.
The close ups:
I added a garland of flowers to her hair to match the blossom theme.
I hope you get the chance to join us in the challenge. Good luck !
Till next time…
