New Art-Kure - Available Now!

My design today features the new Art-Kure image White House.  There are 12 new, beautiful images in this release - available today! 

With this technique, I cut my cardstock to size first. This results in a beautiful crisp edge. The image was stamped onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock and colored with Memento Ink Pads and Ink Sweepers. The method to this coloring technique is building up color. For the first layer I used the Memento Ink Refill summer sky to create a nice wet, blending surface. I pulled the sweeper from the outside working in with a light touch, and leaving light in the center. Next I used the same color ink pad and went around a few times.

I continued using the same method with darker shades of blue - bahama blue was next. With each change of color, I went around a few times and tried to go into the center a little less.

I added a subtle light in the windows 011 and a touch of red 024 to the flag with Spectrum Noir Blendable Colored Pencils. A little Stickles star dust provided a nice layer of snow on the bushes and trees.
