Good morning and welcome to yet another blog hop of the INKspired Artists. I admit I look forward to this each fortnight as it makes me put on my thinking cap. You might have come from the lovely Maree who always surprises us with a little antidote of living in the country and she always brings a smile to my face.
Just to be clear on the use of the word Antidote, as listed below and its the second meaning……………lol
1.a medicine taken or given to counteract a particular poison.
“there is no known antidote to the poison of the pufferfish”
•something that counteracts an unpleasant feeling or situation:
“laughter is a good antidote to stress”
Enough of my idle chatter, lets check out this sketch and see what I have done with it.
Using the sketch I decided to use the Perfect Picture stamp set as I hadn’t used it before. Its one of those 3 step stamp sets and allows us to stamp one on top of the other to layer our colours and add dimension to our cards. With this set there are actually 4 steps if you choose to use them. The last one is the Hello Honey on his breast.
How to you come up with your coloring? I have a water-color pad that I first stamp onto to see if the colors blend and look good. Well I did this and was very very happy with my choice and my bird was perfect, like its name Picture Perfect. So then its off to do the real one.
From here your off to check out Teneales card and tell I let you know it’s absolutely beautiful, in fact stunning and I think I might have to go and have a play with the old water colouring.
Opps I went to edit my link and realise that we have the youngest member of our team joining us this week. Mrs Renee has just become a new mummy and bub must be settling into a routine and allowing mummy to play. Welcome back Renee cannot wait to see what you have made for us today.
