Inkspiration Challenge #71

Hey everyone!

This weeks Inkspiration was a little tough for me…..I am not even sure why. It is a gorgeous sketch and easy to work with….maybe it was all the options that were leaping at me as soon as I saw it. It is hard to narrow it down sometimes. I also picked up a couple of tricks at convention I wanted to try. Teneale’s ruffled ribbon and Delys’s Shimmer paint and chalk mix. The perfect set to combine these techniques was the Nature Walk set.

Here’s a closer look at that fabulous bird

To colour him in I mixed Not Quite Navy Chalk with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint. After the initial all-over coat. I dabbed the bird with the brush to give more texture. I then used an Early Espresso and Crumb Cake marker to colour his beak and feet in. So simple but so effective. Thanks girls for all the inspiration at convention. I am full of ideas, I just now have to adapt them to my projects. All the DSP is from the coordinating pack Botanical Gazette. Love this paper and must buy more.

Well I hope you have a chance to play and head over to the Inkspiration Challenge Blog to submit your creation and check out the rest of the DT.

Thanks for dropping by!
