This was my first attempt (and the one I like best). I started off with a not very nice shade of green cardstock and built up the colours with cats eye chalk inks. The first background stamp was one of the new Elusive Images Damask Squares, followed by a stamp with waves and a turtle in a darker blue Versacolor ink. The ship is stamped in Ranger Adirondack denim blue.
Here is my second attempt at the cat using the same combination of stamps.
My final attemp at this technique was using a mixture of deep yellow and red chalk and Versacolour inks. The background was stamped with a border stamp and flower from the damask set and the Elusive Images Mackintosh bauble is stamped with Versafine ink.
This next picture shows paper coloured with various shades of pink and lilac inks...mainly Brilliance and the lady is stamped with Imperial Purple Versafine ink. The background is stamped with a lovely large floral stamp and dragonfly from the Elusive Images Damask Squares set (again)...I love those stamps!
