I have decided to use the Iris with this weeks card sketch challenge over on SCS. This was another easy sketch and the possibilities are endless. It truly is a great sketch for a quick card.
First I stamped the orange background piece with one of the swirls from the set using Versamark. then popped it aside to dry.
Next I stamped the image ( on Watercolour paper) with Gold Pigment Ink and embossed with a sparkly powder called Egyptian Gold. It really is very pretty. I chose to colour this image with twinkling H2Os. (I can't wait to have a go with my Prismas , it will look so different but that's a whole other day)
Here is a close up of just how good the twinkling H2Os look. The shimmer you can see is natural (not caused by camera flash), This is just how they look, marvellous aren't they. Once it was dry I just layered all the pieces together using the sketch as a guide. Although it looks like it took ages to paint, in reality it probably took 30-40 minutes to put the whole card together, including drying time.
Until next time
Inking of you all
