However, I have two new videos posted...one showing how I used Faber Castell Big Brush Markers to create the shading on today's flowers, and another (which I posted last week) demonstrating a gesso resist technique.
So...Big Brush Markers...they're a blast! I've been having so much fun playing with them again...I bought them about two years ago and they've been sitting in my studio ever since, mostly because I didn't know what to do with them! I'm just learning, hence the simple video, but am hoping that as I learn I'll be able to share my ideas and techniques with you!
As for today's card, it was actually created for last week's Mix-ability challenge on Splitcoast. The challenge was to use pen in some way on your project. I started by using Dylusions Ink Sprays on a piece of cardstock and then stamping the Poppy Background stamp (a Donna Downey design) onto the sprayed paper. (Oh, I also used the new Quartrefoil stencil with the White Linen spray on the background, before the stamp!) Then I got to work with the Big Brush Markers, coloring in those beautiful flowers. Once my coloring was done, I went back with a fine tip marker and re-sketched the outline of the stamps and added some sketch lines to the insdie of the flowers...to give it that hand drawn look. I also added some doodles around the edge of the card and traced the sentiment (from teh She Sprouted Wings stamp set) onto a piece of vellum. I then mounted this big 'ol card (it's almost 7" x 4") onto a piece of white corrugated cardstock (from Fancy Pants) and added some pick buttons to finish everything off!
I hope you have a moment to stop by and follow the eP You Tube channel and let me know what you think of the videos.
