Last year was spent cleaning and organizing. The goal this year is to complete all unfinished projects. I had some extra cards and mats left over from my tropical class. I saw this inspiration picture and went to work. I forgot how much fun this technique is to make with all the beautiful colors blended together. The orange, yellow, brown and black colors in this card were perfect for the challenge at FYI.
For Your Inspiration #38
This inspiration photo is such a beautiful masterpiece of nature. The beautiful contrast of dark curvy lines against the vibrant colors is amazing. My inspiration I found in the photo was the depth field it created with the limb in the foreground. The scene draws you in further to focus on the curved ground and limbs. I wanted my scene to focus on the light color shimmering on the ocean as the sun goes down and the birds fly away. ~ENJOY!
The background scene is composed of 4 colors from Adirondack Dye Ink: Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, Mountain Rose and Hazelnut. The scene was stippled with a medium stipple brush working from light to dark ink.
055 F Ledge with Brush was stamped first followed by Sm. Seaside Cove#308 G, 123 F Palm Stalks, Fond #2 & #3 and 302 A Gulls.
TIP: Always have a black marker available in case something doesn't stamp perfect to touch up.
