Book Cover

I have been really busy over past months, hence lack of posting here. Christmas seems to take lots of my time as well as running a craft group on Facebook. So finally I have been able to create another inky mess. Using Inkylicious stamps and Aqua watercolour pens.
I started with the Aquamarine shade and lots of water to give the background a simple wash leaving some areas white. Then adding Teal to create a darker blue with slight watered down slate. The edges are darkened using distress inks weathered wood shade and building up the shade. Not able to see on the photo maybe but used sparkle pens to add a hint of sparkle. Used a white pen to outline some of the blue areas.
The book page is part of a swap making 12 in all and all with the same design. Was quite a task the theme of the books Winter Wonderland.
Happy crafting
