Katy stamped the image on watercolor paper and colored most of the mermaid
with watercolors. The top half of the moon was colored with a gold gel
pen, while the bottom half of the moon (reflected in the water) was colored
with a gold pencil. She then cut the image out and mounted her on a
background created by brayering ink onto glossy paper.

2007 Designer's Challenge
Image used: FT-352-M, Aivas and Irina.
Directions: I created the mountains, sky and foreground by placing masking
tape across the cardstock and dry brushing colors from a variety of ink
pads. The leaves were created using a small piece of wadded up plastic
bag that was dipped into an ink pad. The straight branches were
created using the thin side of a kitchen sponge that was dipped into the ink
pad. The Aivas and Irina image was inked with sepia dye on glossy cardstock.
Watercolor crayons were used to color the image and applied to card.

Image used: VB-092-G, Jumping Jester
The light background was painted using liquid watercolors and pearlescent
ink. After stamping the jester on this background, Nelleke stamped it again
on a separate sheet of paper, painted it with watercolors and golden
gouache. She cut it out (with a knife) and glued it over the original
stamped image, thus raising the jester.

1. Ink the baby raccoon with the Onyx Black Versafine ink pad and stamp onto
the white cardstock.
2. Make a mask of the raccoon with Post-it Notes, being sure to cut it just
a bit smaller than the original image and cover the raccoon. By having it
smaller, it prevents a halo around the image.
3. Ink the trees with the Onyx Black and stamp them onto the cardstock.
4. Remove the mask from the raccoon.
5. Stamp the ant hill and more tufts of grass at the bottom of the tree with
the black ink.
6. Stamp the ants in Terra Cotta ink.
7. Color in scene with colored pencils and chalks.
8. Spray when finished with Blair Workable Fixative Spray.
9. Add the saying with Onyx Black Versafine Ink.
10. Finish by layering to black cardstock and to the base card of
Raspberry/beige duplex cardstock.
