My Creative Monday for Magenta - Leftovers

Inspiration TIMI challenge time!!

I created a card with a leftover piece of colored paper, to create a background.
 I punched squares from it, with a 1-and-a-half inch punch. I filled up the size of the background and cut pieces off of the inchies accordingly. The cut-off piece was adhered to the next row. I added a layer of gesso with a palette knife just randomly..
Stamping and sponging finished it off.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - Magnolia flower

This stamp, the Magnolia branch, is one of my alltime favourites from Magenta!
I stamped it on a background of Nuance powders, and to tone it down I added watered down gesso with a brush.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - negative watercoloring

I found this technique from The Homegrown Artist on You Tube,
and decided I can use masks and stencils to achieve the same effect.

Enjoy the process. 
I used a pearlescent watercolor to make the first card. 


Start on a colorful background, not one with too dark colors. 

Draw the lines of the stencil with a pencil and fill in the negative space with a fairly light blue watercolor, the same tint of blue used in the background. Add a darker line with a fineliner; I used black but you can use any color of course.

Reposition the stencil at a different angle, and draw the lines of a second layer of leaves, fill in the negative space with a slightly darker blue watercolor. 

Repeat the process until you are happy with the intensity and contrasts of the leaves. 


This is the first card I've made with the technique; for the first layer I used the masks to sponge around it with Distress Inks.
For more dimension I used a pink Posca acrylic marker. Only 2 layers on this one.

My Creative Monday for Magenta - a technique

I have a technique this time. 

Apply grunge paste through a stencil; ink up a script stamp with black and red ink; stamp into the wet paste. Remove the stencil, Leave it to dry. Color the background with some Nuance, sprayinks or watercolor. ( I've used Twinkling H2o watercolors).
Finish it off with a fussycut stamped image.

On this ATC the background has been stamped into, just as on the card, but without inking up the script stamp. Finish it off with a fussycut stamped and colored image and some transparent tape, or washi tape. 

Try this technique, it always makes for a beautiful background!!
