For both cards I stamped the images first in black memento on white card for the square and multimedia paper for the oblong. Both pieces were sprinkled with the same brusho colours - brilliant red, leaf green and yellow - and heavily spritzed with water. I spread some of the red out with a paint brush where it didn't spread by itself to cover the poppy heads.
The effect on the multimedia card is far smoother and more diffuse, and the card itself didn't curl up, so I think I will be using it more often now .
The same poppy stamp was inked with marker pens and spritzed with water before stamping to form the background on the 6x6 square card, and the main image was matted onto black.
Anyhow, i used the harbour stamp, in black versafine onto multimedia card and clear embossed. A circle mask for the moon, then brushed chipped sapphire and black soot distress inks across the sky, and the main part of the image.
I darkened parts of the scene with karisma pencils in indigo and black, using a promarker blender pen to spread the colours round a bit and smooth them out. White pencil to highlight the houses, then matted onto black, silver and blue card.
