Hello there, I’d like to say I’m so honoured to be a guestdesigner for Inkspirational challenge blog!
The theme is “something new”
I’ve used two new (to me ) stampsets.
For the Thanks, i’ve used Uniko (all occasion sentiments #6) and for the monster and other sentiment are from Creat a smile (big time)
Also new to me are the Spectrum Noir pencils and I thought perfect to try on this challenge.
I only have the florals and the marine set as I first wanted to see if they are for me and I got these off a secondhand site otherwise I might have gone for the essentials and primary.
My arthritis sometimes is a spoiler, I love watercoloring and my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers as they have a low impact, they slide just over the paper, if that makes sense, to put down pencil, you have to push a bit more and it takes longer, and holding a pencil a long time turned out not to be a good idea ;-)
To blend I used my alcohol marker blending pen and then layered another layer of color.
I free handed the moon or planet the alien is standing on.
Wiggly eyes as monsters need wiggly eyes and a few iridescent sequins as stars.
I didn’t want to fill in the whole background, because I think the elemens stand out now, and might dissapear otherwise.
Since shooting the video I’ve learned you can use My Favourite things hybrid black ink on both Copic (or alcohol) markers and with watercoloring. I’ve ordered it, still waiting for it to come in, but I’m very excited about it.
That way you can make one layer cards with two mediums.
