With all this crazy weather we are having in the Midwest, I need a tropical sunset! I was happy to see this month's StampscapesII Challenge of "Tropical." It also needs to have a bird, animal or people in it. I was inspired by a lovely photo I saw on Pinterest and tried to capture it here. I made this colorful scene for my Stampin' Sister Trish D, who is across the world from me in Austrailia.
I started by airbrushing the background inspired by the colors in the photo. Copic colors used: R08, R27, V06, and V09. I masked the horizon line with a piece of paper.
Next, I used acrylic paint and a little piece of felt to dab in some clouds. Colors used: folkARt wicker white and metallic plum, Golden naphthol red light.
To color the foreground, I tore a piece of paper as mask and pulled Golden carbon black paint across the bottom with a little sponge.
After it dried completely, I stamped the scene. Images used: 123F, 137C, 138C, 228A, 302A. I used a white gel pen to give the water some highlights and also used a pen filled with black paint to fill in the land after I stamped the little people too far out into the water. :o) OOps!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
