Thanks for stopping by.
Wednesday’s blog is something new,
so here’s a brand new kit which was showcased on TV recently.
The question is :
Is it a he or a she? Well, girls don’t have antlers for a start!
So unless she’s wearing falsies, it’s a boy!
Is it a Moose, or is it a Stag?
mmmm… the jury’s out on that one!
Let’s have some fun either way!
Let’s only use a part of the Oak wreath stamp, and make a garland.
Simply use 2 pieces of masking tape to block off the part you don’t want to ink up, like so:
Remove the masking tape and hey presto!
An oak garland!
A moose or a stag, I hear you ask…
who cares, so long as you can buy a mask!
Cut the mask section to fit and attach.
Now add the head.
Add his mask too.
Decorate the antlers with the little oak leaves,
and the garland with the acorns.
make a fabulous colour combination.
The example below shows second generation ink –
ink, blot, plot.
This example shows first generation ink.
Much bolder! You decide…
Colour in the head and leaves with
Spectrum Noir Pencils.

Build up the depth of colour to work with the depth of ink you used in the background.
Back on with the masks.
Using a make-up sponge and Slate Adirondack
drag shadows out from the masks.
Use a grey pencil to give depth to the acorns, too.
Use the grey pencil to generally
add more strength and shade to the head.
Mat and layer the piece, to frame it with complimentary colours,
add a word chain word which fits the bill.
Who called him Bill??
What would you call him?
