Sun Rise Bird Watching

Wednesday, April 7, 20109

Well, I guess the opinions of the "Guardian Castle" is in. It was 30% for the Prismacolor version, 50% for the Copic (No Surprise) and 20% for the Derwent Inktense. I'm happy that I could inpire some of you to try different coloring mediums. I glad that I was able to accomplish that.

Today, I am off to something new. It's an airbrushed background and uses a silhouette stamp from "Cornish Heritage Farms" called "Bird Watching" . The stamp used is from "The Saturday Evening Post" series.

First I airbrushed the background using Y06 to about half of the way down the card. Then from the top I airbrushed with YR14 to about the half way point for the Y06.

The remainder of the background was done with B05. I then used a C03 marker to simulate the hills, and blended this out with a C0 marker.

For the sun, I punched out a half circle and placed it at the half way point and airbrushed the sun with YR14.
The stamp was done in Memento Tuxedo Black at this point and touches of color worked in.

Now after all of this work, I did not want to cove up the coloring, who would. So, I cut a piece of acetate and stamped a saying from "The Angel Company" called "Linear Sentiments" in Staz-On Cloud White ink at the top and bottom od the piece of acetate.

I attached the acetate to the card with some small brads. The acetate only covers the image.

So let take a look at the card;

"Sun Rise Bird Watching"

I finished off the card with some Copper Stickles.
I like the results, it almost looks like a Saturday Evening Post picture.

Hope you enjoy my efforts. You comments are always appreciated.

Have a GREAT DAY!!!
