Thank you for thinking of me - Sunny Day Crafting #16

Wednesday April 18, 2018
 
Welcome back to another fun challenge at Sunny Day Crafting #16
Our theme for this week is BUGS & INSECTS
 
 
Last month I watched a video that Gina K did for Simon Says. She embossed an image and then used Oxide inks and blended the background and added color to the flowers with the oxide as I did the blue and yellow flowers. When she was done she took a small brush dipped in water and went around the embossed part of the image which lifts the ink off of the embossing and some out of the flower. Then when it's dry you take a colored pencil I used Fabre Castell in a color that is close to the Ranger ink color... and add just a little pencil to the shading part then use Gamsol to spread the color out.. So that is what I did. I added the citron twist to the crocus but didn't like the look so I took a purple pencil and added color. Then I stamped and die cut the darling cute precious Pretty Pink Posh bees. I colored them with copics. I added Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to the wings. I added the bees and some gems. The flowers and sentiment is from Simon Says.
