Ok, now that you have your image, you can use the brush to move some of the paint around and fill in the white spots. The pigment from the impression is only going to go where the lines are on the stamp, so you might need to help it out some, depending on your image. I also painted water where I wanted my shadow and then a little gray in those areas. Notice how I have used a plate as my palette, simply scribbling some of the crayon on the plate and painting from that. You can use a styrofoam plate....anything that is non porus. I also got some brown paint and tapped my brush on a pencil to get a little spattering to look like the sand that would be around a shell on the beach.
Here my page is filled up with Inkadinkado images. I just LOVE the Inkadinkado sketch images. I think they are my very favorite! I like every one of those they have made and I just got some great new ones! I also like to stamp them with the Versafine Smokey Gray ink and then paint them in. Looks like I sat down and did the sketch myself!
How about a bolder stamp? This bird frame is an example of a stamp that has more solid areas. Excuse my junk in the background....I am SUCH a messy crafter! Would you believe all my other areas are too cluttered and now I am in my kitchen working and obviously, it is cluttered too! Hope none of you are like me :-)
Here is one of the new sketch stamps from Inkadinkado....a rose. Notice how subtle the shadows are....less is more! Be sure and sign your artwork! Tomorrow....how to fix those images that need help!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
