You all probably know by now I do LOTS of experimenting. I got some new pens at Comicon a coupe of weeks ago. I finally had a gap in drawing/ DT works etc. etc. So it was time to play with my pens.
So then new pens are Chameleon pens. They're quite different using blended ink as a starting point and building the colour up - or alternatively you can just use them as ordinary alcohol markers.
I've used the blending inks method here on these flowers.
Once I'd got the colour on I've added a little polychromos pencil to add to the intensity of colour and shading.
The image cut out with a Spellbinders die has then been distressed.
I've tried something really different with this card using very pale pastel design papers with just the main image having tons of colour to make it pop. I'm not quite sure what I think of it but I know my hubby loves it. It would be great to get some feedback.
Anyway the design papers (distressed) are from Lemoncraft. There are a couple of white paper butterflies, some pearlised gems, tiny silver dragonfly beads and a couple of resin corners. The design paper directly behind the image has been cut with a Spellbinders die to add some interest to the background without it overpowering the image.
Love to hear what you think about it
