Over at the PA blog Ellen Vargo is back this week with her first project which you can see here.
I pretty much followed what she did for the background using LB Limited Edition paints together with limelight, pumpkin soup and tango as I wanted to keep it quite bright.
I cut each A4 sheet into 4 and added some stamped lines using pumpkin, saddle brown and rusty brown stazon ink.
Close up of the stamped lines.
I'd already ordered the EV01 stamp set from Country View Crafts last week. This plate includes the bolder images. I stamped some in snowflake and some in little black dress.
I put some black dress through a stencil but the circles were a bit big, so I reverted to using the end of a paintbrush.
Then I took my black posca pen and outlined the shapes.
I outlined the black rectangles with a white posca pen for contrast.
For this pair I used a smudgy pencil to outline the shapes, a black for the left and a white for the right. I used a spray sealer over the top, as although I used a smudgy pencil, I didn't actually want it to smudge!!
And here are the finished pieces with black lines of paint added.
Coloured over with the white posca pen.
I haven't made a finished project with them yet as I may use some for Atc's, some for card and others for general backgrounds at a later date.
This was a really great fun project and nothing much can go wrong!!
