Les beaux dimanches de Nathalie / Nathalie’s Sunny Sundays

Cette fois encore, je me suis amusée à créer un fond avec des encres à l’alcool, appliquées soit en tamponnant le feutre applicateur pour un effet pointillé, soit en traçant des lignes ou encore des cercles.

J’ai étampé trois fois la marguerite la plus grande, à différentes hauteurs. Je l’ai étampée une fois de plus sur un autre papier, ainsi que trois petites marguerites. J’ai colorié toutes les fleurs au crayon de couleur, découpé les fleurs supplémentaires, et les ai collées ici et là sur le montage pour figurer un champ de fleurs. J’ai tracé des tiges fantaisistes au marqueur noir, agrémentées de spirales.

 

This time again, I had fun creating a background with alcohol inks, applied either by dabbing the felt applicator for a dotted effect, or by drawing lines or circles with the same felt.

I stamped the largest daisy three times, at different heights. I stamped it once again on another paper, as well as three small daisies. I colored all the flowers with colored pencil, cut out the extra flowers, and stuck them here and there on the card as if it was a field of flowers. I drew fancy stems with a black marker embellished with spirals.

This beautiful art! I could see this field of flowers in a frame!

Kim said...

love it! What kind of alcohol ink did you use?
I've tried copic before but I think I like watercolor more

I love the layout and the colors you've chosen. Simply beautiful!

Thank you ladies for your nice comments.

Kim, the alcohol ink is the one in bottles from Ranger, applied with a felt applicator (with wood handle and velcro to hold the felt safely) on which I poured 3-4 colors tracing parallel lines on the felt - and adding a bit of their Blending Solution, essential to cover the surface, if not, it can be too dark and too dry to cover the whole space. This motion is for the bottom half of the landscape, creating like a fence. Start from the center to the outside, so better to work on a craft sheet easy to clean with the Blending Solution and a paper towel. The other half is decorated with the same felt already inked and applied by dabbing the applicator here and there to create dots, or tracing circles. Try all motions, you will discover that these liquid inks are having endless possibilities. Just be careful, they are permanent ink and a drop can be fast to go any place else then on the felt applicator... and stain permanently your bran new shirt, or other cards...

I hope this makes sense for you, English is not my language after all... Let me know if you don't understand, I will ask one of my friends to help you better!
