I don't have any suitable sea side stamp images so I decided to make a picture with dunes, grasses and the blue sky using 'Dylusions' paints, card and a little artistic flair!
The paint covers card beautifully and once its dry you can write on it too.
This technique is easy to do and I want to try and make a meadow next and add lots of
blue for cornflowers or red for poppies.
I hope the pictures that follow explain the technique. I'm hooked!
|My finished card.|
|Daubers and paints to colour a piece of white card to|
create my, dune and sky.
|My finished background|
|Add some brown paint to a tile and cut up some card|
into different lengths
|Dip the edge of the card into the paint.....|
|.....and touch the edge onto the painted|
|Using a shorter length of card and curving it to give|
the grass the impression its being blown by the wind.
|Next add some green paint in the same way.|
|Work in progress.|
|Dab on some blobs of yellow paint|
|Draw in some seagulls with a black 01 Micron pen|
|Dab on some yellow with a large dauber to create a sun.|
|Add a greeting suitable for the image. This is JGCL575.|
