Hello everyone,

After I do DT work I always like to play a little. And today I played with an already coloured ATC, an already stamped Katzelkraft bird and a stamped and coloured bowler hat and made this :

The background of this ATC was made with a brayer. I make so called 'master boards' and then cut them up into different size pieces. Usually some postcards, some ATC's and also some bases for Art Journals. I liked this pretty green and stamped another Katzelkraft stamp on it to create a little more interest. I also took the ink pad and dragged it around the edges. Some of the lines of the stamp were highlighted with a white pen. The bird was coloured with coloured pencils and this time I blended them with a blending solution. I don't usually do this but is is a lot quicker than trying to blend with just the pencils. When he was finished I cut him out, placed him half on the ATC and cut off what was overhanging. I attached his hat and lastly I stamped the "masculin" which is from another Katzelkraft stamp set.....

I used stamps from the following sets:

Thank you for stopping by today !

    May I ask you which blending solution do you use that could be suitable to pencils?...
    I never tried such way of blending pencil-coloured images.
