The theme for July 2019 is "Midnight Blue With An Orange Hue". This is the third sample I have made as part of the Lavinia Stamps Design Team to promote the challenge.
I used an assortment of Distress Oxide Inks to create the background applied with a brush and initially diluted inks, building up the colours. I started with the lamp area using "Antique Linen" and moved on to the following shades. Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans Wilted Violet, Chipped Sapphire and Blue Print Sketch.
Once dry, I coloured in the orange/yellow centre of the lamp area using Arteza Brush Pens.
I stamped the fairy, called "Dragonfly Keepers" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" shade of black ink, positioning the lantern above the yellow/orange area. I then stamped the the hare image using the same ink. The hare is part of a three piece set called "Whimsical Hares".
Using a Versafine Clair ink called "Morning Mist", I stamped the "Sacred Spells" sentiment, very lightly so that it sits in the background of the image.
Using a torn piece of card, I created the landscape image for the hare to sit on, using Distress Inks.
I then returned to using the Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink to stamp the "Creeping Vine", the "Mini Holly" and the "Mini Slender Mushrooms".
Finally, I added some white highlight areas to the card using a fine tip Posca Pen. I used a silver glitter Signo Pen to add some sparkle to the fairy wings and also some speckles of fairy dust around the fairy too.
