Super Hero


So the past couple weeks i've been playing with some new stamps from my stamping friends and as i was putting the stamps away i realized i had one set from a friend that i have had for some time but never used!! So i moved it to my desk to fix that!! The set is Neat & Tangled One The Corner by Miriam Prantner!

I decided to use the sentiment Super Hero and it made me think of Superman. I also new what kind of background i wanted to do, so i used blue and red colors! I started by inking one end of my panel with blue ink. I used the ink applicator and added ink all the way to about center of the panel. I then flipped it around and ink the other side with red. I gradually got lighter with both colors at the middle and blended them together. You get purple when you blend blue and red, and i didn;t want it to be very noticeable so i only blended a small area!

Next i flicked water with my paint brush all over my panel. While the water dried, i stamped the street sign on watercolor paper. To color it i used some ink, pressed it onto a clear block and mixed in lots of water to get various shades of grey. Then i cut it out and added it to my panel with foam dots.
