First off....did you see this? Yep, that's right. I'm joining the design team for Artful INKables. I'm so excited! Although my official debut isn't until the blog hop on the 15th, I had to use some of my AI stamps for today's sketch challenge on SCS.
When I saw that nice large element in the center of today’s sketch, it just cried out to me for some brayering! I’m experimenting with different color combos for the sky as I get tired of doing blue all the time. I love purple so I've been trying to use it more often.
The leaves and flowers were first inked with Versamark and then Going Grey ink before I stamped them on the paper. They were then embossed with clear detail embossing powder. I punched out a circle to use as a mask and placed it a little above center (putting it right in the center would have been boring!). I brayered on first Almost Amethyst. When I was getting ready to put on my last "coat" of Almost Amethyst, I removed the mask so that just a bit of that color would be in the moon. I replaced the mask and next I brayered Perfect Plum (not going all the way to the center) and Elegant Eggplant (staying pretty close to the center). Reducing how far in I brayered with each darker color gives me that wonderful graduated color.
