"Hello" by Dot Leathbridge

 Hello everyone, Today I've a step by step tutorial for you showing how this card was created. It was so much fun to do and super easy. I hope you decide to give it a go too. Prepare to get messy! Only 2 paint colours were used, brown and white. However, you could use any colour that you like. I began by laying down some paint on a gel press. I chose this gorgeous stamp from Carved Collection #3 to stamp into the wet paint. It's important to have a water dish on hand to put your stamp into once you  finish stamping with paint. Once the paint dries, put a thin layer of white paint on the gel press and 'pull the print'. This is how it looked once I pulled the print. It's a little rustic at this stage however I decided to make it more defined. The first thing that I did was add more colour with my pencils. Then the image was brought forward by using a white Posca pen. I've chosen the giraffe from African Animals as my center piece. With such a busy background it&#

Hi, I'm Vero (@ Vero.kt) and I welcome you to today's inspiration. How's everybody ? I've been play ing with     Mixed media mark s   ,   Round in circles   ,     I nky Friends   and   Mix a sentiment 2     to create   Art Journal page  , that I hope you like. On an A4 watercolor card I played with spray inks and some rubber dance stamps to create the background. I cut to the size of an A6 and started stamping different stamps with oxide inks in tones similar to the background to add texture to the page. A dryer helped me to speed up the process, and I added some splashes in black, which add depth to the project. I chose the moth from the set  I nky Friends , it is colored with pigments and watercolor pencils, and with cardboard, I added volume. One of the parts that I enjoy the most is the composition, I have to admit that it is  usually the part that takes me the most. Now I leave you some photos with details of the project.I hope you like it as much as I do when mak
