Here is my card for the IC challenge today; Inspiration Within. Audrie asked us to be inspired by one of our previous made cards Here is the one that I am remaking: http://snippets-karen.blogspot.ca/20...rainy-day.html
Once again, I made a bkg. using Bister (a paint medium- link on my blog) but in different colours. This time, I covered the whole bkg. by tapping the Bister onto my paper and spraying with water. When dry, I stamped the flowers using Stazon.
Next it was trying to figure out how to colour the flowers over the painted surface. So, first I coloured the flowers with a white Signo pen to cover the paint then used Copic markers to go over that. It gave a very unique! look to the flowers.
thanks for looking,

Great CASE of your own work! Love both your cards (but blue is my favourite colour so lean towards that one!). I must try your technique for painting the flowers over the bister. What I do is take some bleach and a paintbrush and remove the bister colour from my image - it will lift most of it quite easily, and then you can colour the image. You can see it in the Water and Earth Elements card I just posted.
