Late Evening Sky

We decided to take on another challenge and this time it was at Chocolate Baroque.

We were inspired by the colour palette of Challenge 24 and created a mixed media piece. Although we don’t have any of their products, we still went ahead and participated in this challenge.

Our focus was the late evening sky and we wanted to create something inspiring.

 

For this, we used an iris sheet as our base. Our background is a result of four distress inks- squeezed lemonade, wild honey, victorian velvet and wilted violet; which have been blended using the blending tool. We then add a few textures using two design stencils and Ranger Transparent Gloss medium. We used this as it takes on the background colour and intensifies the textures. For this piece we wanted an effect like this. We then used the messy lines stamp from Peek-a-boo with Picket Fence Distress Stain and stamped on top. We sprayed Picket Fence at a few spots as well. We then took a chipboard bench and lamp post and painted them black. We stamped a bicycle from Itsy Bitsy Clear Stamp Travel collection. We then stuck the chipboard elements keeping in my fore-ground and background. We stamped doves from Tres Elegant clear stamp collection. For the black stamping we used Black Archival Ink. We stamped our sentiment from the Altenew stamp collection for our inspiration. To finish it off we added a few white crystal stones in the sky.
