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.

All the product used is from Magenta. Let me know if you need any codes etc!

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!!
