I really dig how this surprise technique turned out for me, so I'm making some more designs! I'm keeping with the music theme and dug out a bunch of music images. To see the first one I made click here.
I cut them up in A2 sizes and trimmed them to the design. Next, I used a black VersaFine ink pad to stamp various musical images. I stamped off first for a more subtle look. After the ink dried, I stamped the main images with Memento Luxe, a rich thick ink for the bolder image and VersaFine for the smaller images.
After the ink dried, I painted the solid parts with gesso - this will add texture and the colors really pop on top of it. I allowed the first coat to dry and painted a second coat.
Now, time for coloring!! I used Tombow Dual Brush pens to fill in color - both direct coloring and also palette colors. I used a water-brush to spread the color. After coloring, I used the markers a black artist pen to fill in any gaps. I used gold metallic paint for the horns, stickles for the bubbles, some glossy accents for the watch.
Had to use this fabulous image and gelli print again! :o)
Take care and STAY POSTIIVE!
