Artist Trading Card Daily – 91

Today’s little monster make started out with a little Color Burst from Ken Oliver again. This time though, it inspired a whole different feeling.

This is what I came up with …

I’m super impressed with how this turned out as I wasn’t sure when I first started it.

So, this started out with a little Color Burst from Ken Oliver. For this one I only spritzed the water lightly after sprinkling it onto watercolour cardstock. This meant that I got lots of little bursts rather than a large swathe of colour.

I also did a second single spritz after the first one had dried which reactivated the pigment and made different areas spread and fade.

It definitely looked like a blazing fire or popping fire crackers when I it had dried.

This inevitably led me back to the set of Woodware Oriental Elements stamps, that I had recently used to make Artist Trading Card 89, which had a Chinese dragon on it.

I stamped this over the background and then thought that whatever I coloured it with would have to block out the background so I had a route and came across a metallic gold fine liner and gel pen.

Both were used to colour the dragon. The metallic pen for the body and the gel pen for the spiny bits.

The final touches were a gem for an eye and a little gold edging on the main area.

Hey presto, a fire breathing mini monster creation!

What do you think – a good combination?

    I love your mini monster ATC and can see how the Colour Burst background inspired you to choose an oriental stamp. I’m learning! Can’t wait to get back from holiday to go and search out some Colour Burst to add to my stash. Thanks for sharing X

    Hi John

    The more I see of this colour burst, the more I want it!

    I love the way you decorated your dragon, red on gold is perfect! The gleaming eye is a lovely touch too.
