Fuchsia Dahlia


Something different today...while it has a CAS appearance...it was anything but CAS!  Stamping, masking, coloring with three different mediums...

I started off by stamping the dahlia image and colored it with Copics.  Next I added some shading with my Prismacolor pencils and some gamsol.  Highlights were added with Copic Opaque white on a toothpick.  Same thing for the leaves.

Then that was all masked off and I used a stencil first in one direction and then the opposite to make the plaid look.  Popped the colored piece up on dimensionals, added a few enamel dots and done!  Well that sounds simple but it took me a couple of hours!!!

Here's what I used: 
Paper:  Copic XPress-It and Gina K. pure luxury white
Ink:  Ranger Archival Watering Can, Black Soot Distress Ink and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamps:  Penny Black and Hero Arts
All the other stuff:  Kelly Purkey All In A Line Stencil, Eclipse Masking Tape, sponges, Copic Opaque white, toothpicks, MME enamel dots, Prismacolor pencils,  Copics:  BG02, BG07, BG09, RV00, RV55, RV63 and W1
