Inks, Inks and more inks!

Had a great day at the Workshop today -

Here are a couple of my results:-
You need a stencil or an image with a positive and negative.
The aperture needs to big enough to take small stamped images or stencils after inking in a background.
When you are happy with the stamping, mask it off and use a darker colour make the frame effect. On this piece I used Designs by Ryn       Maidenhair Fern and a Hibiscus Leaf stamp!/Hibiscus-Leaf-Set/p/48409228/category=2523274
The foxglove is from a Hobby Art Set.
My secong piece again uses the Hibiscus leaf stamp from Designs by Ryn and a flower burst stamp from VLVS stamps. Highlights in white. Butterfly edge with a gold metallic and also a black pen.
for all the inspiration
