The painted background paper is a blend of orange colours and looks soft and muted - not almost luminous as the scan shows!
The Imagine quotes are stamped randomly and darker at the top then lighter further down, to enable me to stamp on a face - again at a random angle in a soft brown.
The edging is painted with water colours - and gives more of a soft blended look than the scan shows.
More experiments by me
You will have to take my word that this looks so much better in reality.
A painted background which is a softer muted orange than this shows. Ditto the stamped wording which has been aged and distressed with chalks and inks - so looks much more subtle and muted too.
The stamped image is also softer - the darker orange has been painted and embossed to give a nice and dimpled and shiny texture to it
Again, it looks so much softer in 'real life'
Something completely different for me.
I painted the backing paper - took ages doing several layers. A stamped fairy which I altered, and water coloured. Stamped 'Imagine' quotes which were embossed with distressed embossing powders - and then randon embossing to the ATC - shiny wings, and lettering etc.
The scan doesn't really show up the true colours.
