A couple of challenges combined on one card today. The theme at Less Is More for challenge #57 is neutrals and for Allsorts #144 they want to see you 'Spread Your Wings'.
I love doing these little cards and canvases with the Inkadinkado sea birds on thought I would try a new one for this challenge. I got the Distress Markers out to begin with hoping to use them directly on the page, but that gave a colour which was a little too harsh and no amount of water seemed to diffuse it. So instead I have used an Antique Linen Distress Ink pad swiped on a tile and sprayed with water to make a colour wash.
The fine details on the ground were added with a Brushed Corduroy Distress Marker and the bird has been coloured with a little Pumice Stone Distress Ink and some of the Antique Linen too.
