Hi I'm doing well this week....Well only because we are off to France in a few days for a week or 10 days don't know when we are back but leaving Eldest here with instruction's for NO WILD parties!
So here as promised, is The Mandarin Duck. Again this is a Clarity stamp Love these they are so easy to use. Used it in the same way as I did the Kingfisher. Masking the sun and the duck put the sky in first in Adirondack Cloudy Blue.
The the ground is Oregano.
And the water is Stonewashed.
The mud! is Sponged with Espresso and a little Lake Mist.
The Duck is Stamped in Espresso Adirondack ink and then coloured in with Promarkers;
Sky blue
Burnt Orange.
The bull rush leaves are Lime Zest.
the only thing I have done different is pick a little lake mist ink from the inkpad onto a brush and swirl it around were the mud ends to give it some depth...........I will be AWOL for a couple of weeks but hopefully will be back before Easter to tell you of my travels. Take care. xx
