Title: It's a mirage!

Here in Texas, it gets pretty darn hot. Africa hot. Hotter than a two dollar pistol.
All summer long, it's so hot that everywhere you go, you see mirages on the streets and sidewalks, and I've been fascinated with them since I was a kid.
My challenge tonight is a mirage challenge. I want you to create a mirage inside a stamped image.
The way you do this is to stamp an image, and then use the no line coloring method to create a softer, more painterly version of the image that you will layer on top of it.
Here is a tutorial on the no line coloring method: Splitcoaststampers - Tutorials
Here's the video I did for my sample for you tonight. You can use either the no line coloring method or use a lightbox for your sample, or you can color with markers directly on a stamp and then mist it with water for your mirage - or you can freestyle it! Just create a mirage!
This challenge was inspired by one of my favorite artists on Splitcoast - Lee Ann Barrett, aka whippetgirl
