Well hello again. Here is the second of four artist trading cards themed around the elements. This one represents ‘air’.
Odlly, given that I usually slap on loads of stuff, it was relatively easy to do this one.
I did cheat a little though and went with the bog standard representing air by showing clouds – not a bad thing I guess.
For this particular ATC I used an MDF base that I got from Fernli Designs.
First I gave it a coat of sky blue acrylic paint and set it aside to dry.
To stamp the clouds (from Indigo Blu) I first tried a white pigment ink but this didn’t quite work so I went for the white Stazon ink instead.
That worked better but I still added a few dabs of white gel paint to give highlights to the cloud.
I added just a couple of final touches which were the addition of a bird, riding the invisible air currents, and some dry brushed dark blue acrylic paint around the edges to form a vignette.
I chose to stop there. Unusual for me as I was desperate to add a gem or some text or something, but no, it was ‘clean’ and just what was needed.
Thank you for visiting again and I hope that you are enjoying this little mini series.
I’ll be tackling fire next.
