One of my latest cards made for the Designs by Ryn january challenge:
Made with three stamps from Designs by Ryn:
I made this card onto a background made with bister. I couldn’t quite remember when I made it, as it wasn’t exactly how I usually did it, but it looked quite ok. Then I remembered: my son had made this one. It was an A4 sheet, where we had made on the right side some more greenish colours and a blue river flowing down into a pond. (Use your imagination – he’s 3 1/2). Can you see the river coming from the right of the card, falling down as a waterfall into the pond?
Ofcourse it was me who inked up the corners and edges more after I cut the sheet, as he allready had forgotten about this piece of paper. I found it quite amusing that I had taken a “drawing” of my son and found it good enough to use as background 😛 Ofcourse, I had helped a bit with the bister, and ofcourse you can’t really go wrong with bister (when your mom sprinkles some on the sheet and all you get is a brush and a mister).
I stamped the fish scales on twice with Versafine Smokey Grey first, Then I stamped the octopus, I think with Stazon midnight blue and coloured it with distress paint peacock feathers. Next I stamped the leafy sea dragon as kelp in the corners, colouring it slightly first with distress ink and water, and then going over it with gloss pens, also added gloss gel to the octopus thingies.
