A tower of grumpies for your viewing pleasure today! I love the grumpies and the digi can be found HERE in the Smeared Ink Shop. C'mon you knowwww you want them:)
I am a really new colorer, so be kind:) I want to learn more and play more :) My first coloring project is Here if you are curious:)
I did some re-sizing and flips (in my computer ofc) of these cuties. I printed them onto my on-hand stash Strathmore Mixed Media Heavy 90lb paper. I colored them using Sharpies and Bic Marks It pens. I also have a Prismacolor Colorless Blender pen.
I love my background almost as much as I love the grumpies. Please click to see it bigger:)
I colored the manila tag using Dylusion Spray Inks. The whole spraying, wetting, blotting till it was blotchy enough. Then I sprayed some more water on it and sprinkled rock salt on it. Let sit till dry. It makes the really cool spots you can see in the background in the colors.
I used a stencil and applied embossing fluid, the Ranger dabber one, onto the tag through the stencil. Then I sprinkled clear UTEE and melted it with my trusty heat gun. UTEE= Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel. It is thick and lovely. I made the raised puddles this way.
That step gave me yummy raised bumps. Now I took my Distress Ink Embossing Pad and ran it over the raised surface. Then I sprinkled on some Verdigris EP. Melted. Inked again and this time used Distress Embossing Powder in Tea Dye, a yummy rusty brown color.
That's pretty much it, sorry for being so wordy today! If you have any questions, just ask:)
Thanks for all your lovely visits and kind comments!~hugs~
