This was an attempt at a method I saw on a video today. Mine didn't turn out anything like what I saw. That happens when you forget the process that you saw and leave steps out. I also tried to mask the butterfly images the way I saw on the video and Do Not Like the results. My lines are too straight and stark. The video made it look so simple.
This is simply the butterfly stencil/mask that I recently bought and I couldn't wait to use it. Not sure what else I will do with this but the stencil sure is nice.
I was playing around with my inktense water color pencils and drew this. I really, really love these pencils. I added some doodle details with a fine tip ball point pen. The saying in the heart was from a stamp. I cannot write that pretty.
I like how this one turned out. I sprayed the background using various Dylusions sprays through various stencil. I also used the "ghosting technique" by spraying water through the stencil, letting it sit for a few second and patting it dry with a paper towel. I stamped randomly over the background. I used modeling paste through a bird stencil. When it dried, I painted it using my watercolor pencils. I brushed the pencil tip with the water brush and applied it to the bird. I outlined the bird with a black micron pen. I did the lettering in pencil first (it was very hard to see on the colorful background. Sometimes I had to hold it at an angle to the light so I could see) Then I went over it using a black sharpie. I finished it using my white Signo pen to highlight.
I can hear you now, "What the ....." Well....I bought a stamp of a crown and thought that I would stamp it in black and emboss it using silver embossing powder. I thought it would look cool. It didn't turn out as cool as it looked in my head. I have some ideas to add to this page so maybe all is not lost.
