Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge this week is to use your favorite technique. For all the info and to see the beautiful samples the design team has created please visit Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge Blog.
My favorite techniques right now include mixing different medias. I began by dabbing TH distress ink directly to craft mat and spritzing with water. Then I swiped water color paper through the ink.
Then I brushed gesso....
For the next step I placed a hexagon stencil down randomly on the paper and brushed on pink Gelato. After I played some more...it's very difficult to see that layer.
I then placed drywall tape down and stippled with distress ink. I painted a little more white gesso in the general area I planned to place my dinosaur and finished off the panel by sponging the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress ink.
To color the dinosaur I used the first technique as the background.
It occurred to me that girls enjoy dinosaurs too so I created a feminine dinosaur to go to Haiti along with the other dino cards I made this week. Since I am not exactly certain of the age of the recipient I wanted to keep the card free of jewels so I punched the centers of the flowers out with a hole punch.
On the inside I added a few dragonflies from the new Dragonfly set.
We hope you will play along with the challenge and show us your favorite technique!!!
