Double the fun
These are some more images I stamped & coloured of the Morning Glory, but I wanted to create some different backgrounds from the alcohol inked ones. I decided it was time to play with some mica sprays I have to give me some pastel backgrounds.
At first the colours seemed a little too strong for what I wanted, but how to tone them down?
Then I looked at the box of tissues by my workdesk.
So I dropped a tissue over the card, and lightly pressed it down. When lifted off, I was left with a lovely muted sheet of card, which still retained its mica sheen.
I also got some interesting texture effects depending how much pressure was put on the tissue-
As usual, I got carried away with the technique.....
But, best of all, I had lots of lovely coloured tissues....which I also put aside to dry, and now I think these may come in very useful for working with the canvases! Oh, and the tissues also have a mica sheen to them!
Using my trusty stamp positioner to place my image to its best advantage....
