The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using large words or phrases as the focal point of our cards.
Sometimes I watch movies on my computer when I'm stamping, and the one for this day was called Lifted... that explains the theme and the subtle patriotic color scheme. The focal panel is a 4" Art Square from Inchie Arts, which did wonderfully with all my layers of distracted splattering.
I used Distress markers to color my panel - they're the closest reach from here, and so versatile. I used some direct blending and palette blending, as well as splattering to get my point across.
I used a light chalk ink to stamp the Starburst background just around the edges of the image - I love the subtle drama of that - it really draws focus in to the bird. Stamps I used (from my dkdesigns line): Sing, Bird Collage 4, CAC Starburst, French Script
