I am just loving these new stamps by Art-Kure. Today I'm using the 'Blackwater, Essex' harbor scene.
I colored the image with my Spectrum Noir markers. I experimented by adding pinks and purples to the blue in the sky and water. I was really happy with how my sunset sky and water it turned out. Don't be afraid to add the color reflections to the water, it gives it a lot of life. After coloring the image, I layered it on to black.
This was then layered on to a sheet with white, purple and blue watercolor-y splotches...the technique is called smackin' acetate. Here's a great tutorial.
The background was layered onto black and then on to a mauve folded card base. I thought about adding some embellishments, but I restrained myself. The image is just too breathtaking to need anything else.
If you like scenic stamping, be sure to check out this Art-Kure collection. There are some stunning trees as well that are very versatile.
Enjoy your Sunday!
