Mixing Up Techniques

This mixed media piece began with the pounded flower technique.
Here's what the pounded flowers gave me. I had to fiddle around with the sandwich and I think the warp in my acrylic plates affected the amount of color I got.
I took a wet paintbrush to pick up ink from the lids of my inkpads (Pear Pizzazz for the stems and Wisteria Wonder and Concord Crush for the flowers)

I added a color wash with Ballet Blue as well as putting a bit of blue in the flowers. I also took markers to add more definition to the flowers and stems.

I used a Sahara Sand marker to shade around the flowers. I added some Impressionist "dots" in Plum to the flowers.

Last media added was chalk ink in two colors of blue around the flowers and on the edges. I scored a frame in my Pear card base, framed the panel in Concord Crush and threw on a few purple gems.
