Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine


Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with some Sunsets and Skies. I pulled out some of my Magenta scenic stamps to create these cards.

For my first card I created a winter scene with the blue sky trees and deer walking in the snow.
I stamped the tree image, hand drew the horizon with pencil. I then used water soluble chalks (Lyra Polycrayons) to create the sky and using a wet paint brush blended the colours. I added the deer and clouds and used water colour pencils and the chalks to colour the snow and the trees.


For my second card I used the Blue Heron as my image and the Lyra Polycrayons as pastels for the sunset and the water. This time I used my finger to blend the colours and a fixative when I finished


My third card I used oil pastels to create the sunset and the water for the Canada geese. I blended the colours first with my finger then went over it with odorless mineral spirit and a piece of kitchen paper, this really blends the colour into the watercolour paper. 



I hope you liked the three different techniques for creating the sky and sunset for these beautiful stamps.
