Hello all, today I am sharing my second "inspired by" piece and this time the artist I was inspired by is Susan Winget. I especially love her nature paintings, - if you don't know her, I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her, you can find it here
I did not copy any of her pieces directly, I just kind of followed her style (and boy do I have a lot to learn still). I used a combination of watercolours, Derwent Inktense pencils and some stamping with both Archival and Distress Inks.
This is the only focal stamp I used, it's by Inkylicious and I coloured it with Inktense pencils.
The bird and branches were hand painted, fantasy style. I put it in a little frame like Susan often does. I apologize for the fuzzy photo.
The butterfly is also hand painted. I really struggled with that one and did not find it easy at all to get the shape right, much more practice needed me thinks.
Here you can see some more of the background stamping, the little crown is from the Tim Holtz Correspondence set and the letters from Documented set. The swirls around the edges are a Stepmel Glede stamp.
Well that's pretty much it. I enjoyed kind of going back to doing some hand drawing and painting, so expect to see more.....
Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
