Making this was such a therapeutic process! I really “got into it” if you know what I mean. I used resist embossing, brayered ink, sponging and masking to create the scene.
I made this for our Twisted Sistah challenge a week and a half ago. I really enjoy making scenes, but I haven’t done very many. I need to practice!!
Here are the main steps of how I made this one.
I loaded the bird image stamp first in versamark ink, then in jet black Archival ink, stamped it and clear embossed it.
I colored it in using a blender pen and watercolor wonder crayons.
I repeated the same process with the birdhouse and smaller bird in the top corner. I first had a look at where the tree limb would hang, to figure out how I would place these, so they would look like they were on the branch and not in midair somewhere. Once they were colored, I used my versamarker to fill in the colored areas and clear embossed them too.
Now I don’t have pictures, but I used my brayer to ink the entire sheet in So Saffron. Then sponged on weathered wood ( a blue color) across the top and around areas of the bottom for the sky and shadows on the ground.
I used a torn bit of paper to lay across the middle of the page and sponged on Always Artichoke as a horizon line.
Oh, one last thing, I used a white Inkssentials pen to create highlights around the bird and the branches too.
I hope to do more of these, as I know the practice with the brayer and sponging will help.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you enjoy today’s card!
