Blue Flowers and Bird House
Hi there , I want to show you this plaque because it is a mixture of stamping and painting . The background flowers are simply stamped onto the painted plaque in two colours before the main flowers were stamped . I have used PaperArtsy stamps for this design . Once the ink is dry I used PaperArtsy Grunge Paste to paint on the flowers to create texture on the petals . This has to be left to dry before the next stage .
Once the grunge paste was dry I painted the flowers with various shades of blue and added the highlights by dry brushing white paint over the raised areas . The centers of the flowers were created by adding dots of the grunge paste . When the rest of the painting was dry I rubbed Treasure Gold over the dots to make them stand out .
It's fun to mix techniques like this using ideas from different areas of the craft and art world .
