Red and Black...


….and a little bit of blue for the sky!  I decided to use part of the Tando Layered Arch for the base for this little plaque, I covered it in gesso , dried it and then used blue spray ink over the top.  I dried the blue spray ink with a heat gun so you get the drips of colour, the final layer was some stamping with black ink and flicks of black spray ink across the background.  The cloud and balloon are both from Tando grab bags.  I covered the cloud in white paint and then the balloon in washi tape, I drew on the panels in a permanent black pen, and went around the edges of the chipboard in black too.  I then covered it in a thin layer of gesso and added some flicks of red paint.  I used some Tim Holtz stamps for the phrase and also the little flock of birds in the corner.

Here are all the pieces I used

This is brilliant! I love the way you used the shapes together, the balloon looks so light and really gives the impression of flight! Great use of colours, bravo!
