Penny Black Jonquil 3587K
Special Thoughts 30-338
Arteza Brush Markers
Polychromos Colored Pencils
On Strathmore smooth bristol, I stamped the Jonquils, using my Misti and antique linen distress ink. I used Arteza real brush markers to add color to each petal and leaf, gradually adding colors and building them up, sometimes misting in between with water to get the color moving. I repeated until I reached the desired look.
When the image was dry - ok, I hurried this part along with my always handy heat tool, because I'm impatient -I brushed some wild honey ink in the image area, fading it out as it went further into the background.
I added the verse, from the Special Thoughts set, with Ranger archival fern green ink.
I added some spatters, then cut the panel down, having some of the flower peek over the cut line by fussy-cutting that area.
I added my panel to a green A2 card with foam tape for dimension.
On to the inside:
That's it! CAS and easy-peasy. Penny Black brushstroke stamps are my favorites!
