A Little Play With Art
is what I ended up doing while making this colour challenge card for Rubber Dance.
The colours this fortnight are Blue, Sea Green and Sand. Summer is definitely settling in up in the Northern Hemisphere.
After masking my sculpture image I’ve used Distress Oxides to create a background with the help of some clear plastic and stencils. What I am quickly loving about the oxides is just how well you can stamp with them! Leonardo, who is in the background looking at his art, and some other background stamping is all done with the oxides. It is so clear, and as long as I dry between layers, the colour sits on top of whatever is under it. Even the hearts are stamped in oxides!
It’s so clear!!! Amazing!
To finish, the background has some black stamping and mark making, the main image is water-coloured with oxides and some words are added. Oh, and I lifted a little of the oxides off Leonardo’s face – it isn’t as effective as distress inks and you have to be careful not to touch the image itself.
