Clarity Stamp Challenge for this month.
The theme for September is Vintage and this piece fits the bill. This is an Ink on Canvas 5 x 7 inches.
I have used the Beatrice stamp along with the Wild Rose Clever Corner. I started this piece by making a mask from post-it notes of the lady and placing it over my stamped image, I also stamped the corner of the wild rose stamp cutting out the rose (two layers of post-it were required...cut once). Next I shaded the canvas with Plum Adirondack ink using an ink duster to begin with over the corners then using a foam pad to darken them. I added shading around my mask of the central image being careful not to go near the lines of the framework in the wild rose image. After removing the masks I used a promarker (Blush) to colour in the exposed arms and face and also to the centre of the flowers. I then very lightly tinted the petals with Pearlescent Crimson Brilliance ink. I chose the colours in this piece as they will fit in with my friend's colour scheme and also because the images have a nice serene feel to them. Pieces two and three coming soon!
Happy crafting everyone x
