I hadn't seen the technique of lifting off waterlcolour with a baby wipe before. There should probably be a book entitled 100 ways with baby wipes!
I haven't got any portfolio pastels yet so I had a scribble with Inktense pencils. Played for ages with different colours and ended up going back to my first practise piece.
I only scribbled in the middle and dragged the colour through the leaf stencil out to the edges of the paper.
I then stamped in black archival using Hot Picks 1205 and the ink blot stamp as a surround. think that the ink blot will become my signature stamp.
Finally I went around the edge with Black Soot distress ink.
