things that fly.....

Challenge 8 at Bah Humbug is things that fly - I decided to save my angels for later challenges (surely there will be an angel one?)- and use this Rudolph stamp from Elusive Images a couple of years ago.
I did try creating a sky background with a brayer, but couldn't get the colours right with my big'n'juicy pads, and mucked it up even more trying to brayer DI ink over the top! So I used a piece of blue card, stamped Rudolph in versamark and  detail silver EP. I then darkened the sky with black soot DI, stamped a roofline using more Elusive Images stamps - I think mostly village life plate, but possibly townhouses too - fairly randomly along the bottom and colouring them in with black marker pen.  Rudolph looked a little lost, so he got the sakura stardust pen treatment, and I added dots along the stardust trailing from his hooves as well. I matted him onto matt silver card, then on to a black card cut down from a folded A4 sheet.


  1. Your sky is perfect! Love your use of all the different stamps. The skyline is particularly effective.
