Janet's set at the last Clarity East workshop.........there's just too much temptation around these days, leaving aside the question of the really new CB stamps, like the luscious orchid............
Anyway, I started out with the fountain scene stamp, versafine black ink and a spare piece of brusho'd card - luckily the trees came out onto a greener bit of card, purely accidentally!
I bleached the fountain out, and tried the bleach on the dome and top storey of the building, but the blue resisted the bleach.
I did manage to get a bronze effect on the dome using the pencils. The trees and edge of the fountain were also coloured, and the colour under the arch was deepened as well.
Matted onto dull silver, then onto blue card stamped with one of the stamps from gothic fragments in versamark and clear embossed. Actual card blank is 5"x 7".
I am linking this to the current Addicted to stamps challenge, which happily is anything goes.
tulips, just right for really trying out the pencils. Not wanting to go too mad, I just got one set of pencils to really try out, and have to say that they do work well so far, haven't tried anything really fancy with them yet. Downside is that one set really limits the colour choices - really prefer the better mix of shades in my watercolour pencil sets!
The white tulips had a coating of clear wink of stella , and greeting came from a magazine freebie stamp set. this is a 6"x 6" card blank.
