Here is my entry for FHF Color Challenge #5.
This incredible image is one of the Nymphs from Smeared Ink Stamps. I started with some clay coated cardstock and smeared several colors of distress inks directly onto the cardstock. No sponge or blending tool needed. I then stamped my Nymph with brown Staz-on ink. The leaves and extra grass were drawn with my copic markers. Beware...copics will remove staz-on ink. I'd recommend using Memento Ink with them instead.
I mounted the image onto DP that looks like sand and further mounted that onto the striped cardstock. Sorry, I don't remember the brand. The last piece of cardstock used is a Halloween print, but once again, I don't remember the manufacturer.
I love the way this turned out! It reminds me of a sunrise/sunset in the summer time!
