Hi all! Welcome to my stop on the Hop! For my card, I wanted to try something newish that I've had in my head for a while. My last post used the sketched look with an outline stamp image. I wanted to try doing the sketched look with solid images. Here's what I came up with:
I used the Toned Gray sketch book paper again, as well as the Grout Gray ink. This time, instead of using just black and white pencils, I used 3 different colors and the black. Also, I used Luminance pencils instead of Prismacolor pencils, and the Flourish stamp set from Concord & 9th.
I stamped the first step of all the images with the gray ink using the Mini MISTI to help line everything up perfectly, and then traced over them, using a very sketchy motion, with the different colors. For the second step for the leaves and smaller flowers, I just added some detail with the black pencil.
For the bigger flowers, I actually used the Mini MISTI to help me stamp the second steps with the same gray ink right over the colored pencil. I then traced over that second step with the same pink, but pressing harder, on the largest flower. And for the second step on the larger blue flowers, I traced over with black. Finally I added some black detail on the bottom of the pink flower.
I also stamped the Hello sentiment from the same set with the gray ink, and "sketched" over it with black.
I really like this look and had a lot of fun with this technique and this stamp set!
For the Hop, we're giving away a Mini MISTI!! Woohoo! The winner will be randomly drawn on Friday from everyone who leaves a comment on every hop post. Here's the full list:
