Tellens place ink distressing.

The challenge at TELLENS PLACE this week is INK DISTRESSING..... well if ever a challenge was for me, this was it... i love ink.... never happier than when my hands are stained with ink, usually black but with this piece i used 3 shades of blue as well as the usual black.
The image is one of TELLENS PLACE NEW CREEPIER IMAGES.... isnt he wonderful? I used TATTERED ANGEL stamps for the background branches.... originally i masked him and stamped over him but i couldnt get him hiding in the branches like i wanted so i had a rethink and stamped the background, printed and coloured him then cut him out precisely... i then laid him on the background and marked where i wanted him perched... i then cut slits in the background, thread bits of him through and glued him in place.
The whole piece is coloured with ink and water colours, with the high lights done with a chinese white pencil.
I hope you'll come and play along with us this week, pop on over to TELLENS PLACE and see what the other talented divas have done.
