Woodware challenge - Pointillist Technique

Another way to colour your stamped images is with the fabulous technique called Pointillist.
It's a way of colouring using dots in different colours to show light, shade and form.

Here I have used JGS401 Bold Blooms - Ruby and
Copic markers in shades of purple and grey.

Just stamp out your image using a black ink pad onto some smooth white card
and start adding dots keeping the brush tip of the pen
quite upright so you get a nice round dot.
I like to start with the lightest colour and then finish with the darker purple.

The background paper is from the new Perfect Prints Woodware 6" x 6" paper pads. This sheet is from a pad called 'Oxford' and its full of greys, blacks, stone and teal colours.

The greeting comes with the stamp set.

You can see the different coloured dots in this close up.

Here is another sample using JGD384 Decorative Dove
