I am in love with a stamp by Hero Art and everytime I get a chance to use it, I do. So I actually ended up using several Hero Art stamps for this ATC...
First think I did was colorize my background with Archival Ink I used this light blue.
I then stamped my Hero Arts large background (love this stamp) with Archival black, I used Archival so that when I colored everything it would not run into my marker colors.
I used my Copics to color the background leaves and flowers, the Copics are great for this because they aren't water based they won't run
At this point I wanted to stamp the kids into the background behind the flowers so I needed to make a mask for the flowers.
I stamped onto scratch paper and cut out the flower portion to make a mask.
I then stamped my kids with Versamark ink and added black embossing powder and heat set
I love the way the kids just fall into the background, so cool.
Thats it, this was an easy one with minimal steps but I love the outcome.
Thanks again for stopping by and be sure to check out the challenge at Wicked Wednesday
