Getting Inky, Folk Art Style


In the first card, I took my Memento tear drop inks in a variety of colors and randomly placed them on the stamp.  I was careful (mostly) to use the lighter colors first to avoid color contaminating the pads with dark ink. After stamping, I used my Spectrum Noir black pen to ensure the hummingbird's head was ultra dark and used white Enamel Accents and a white Gelly Roll pen to put the white dots back.  I used my markers to color in only part of the flower; it's like the hummingbird is sipping the color into itself.  Neat-o.

The second card was done the same way as far as the inks go with an added step of re-stamping the central bird in black.  Can you see the birds forming the wings?  Really cool stamp set.

The Details:  PTI white card stock and sentiments, Pop Tone Black Licorice card stock, Recollections paisley stamps, Inkadinkado Mindscapes (hummingbird), Memento Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue, Pear Tart, Lilac Posies, Tangelo, and Love Letter, Spectrum Noir pens, Enamel Accents, Gelly Roll pigment pen.

I'm entering these in CASE Study #172, Sweet Stampin' A Little Bird Told MeInkspirational #46 Anything Goes, Crazy for CAS #34 Anything Goes, and Keep It Simple #30 Anything Goes.
