New DS4J digistamp - Cityscape
Now this is a digistamp I have not seen before, so I drew this one and called it 'Cityscape". My thought was to try and create a night scene, so instead of printing onto white card, I printed the digistamp onto a darkish grey piece of scrapbooking cardstock, and it created JUST the mood I was looking for!
The buildings were hardly coloured in - all I used was 3 shades of warm grey alcohol pens to create shadows. The 'lights' in the buildings were created with a fluorescent gel pen - just a touch here and there! The sunset and water were both coloured with watercolour pencils, but because the cardstock has a texture to it, the colours did not blend as normal, but I actually like this patchy result!
Now here's the whole interesting part of this card .... see that psychedelic background print? That is not some paper I bought, but a gelli-printed background that my 5yr old granddaughter Xandrea made with my homemade gelatine plate, and was her very first effort!!! So proud of her. On its own, the page looked like a mess, but behind my digi, it suddenly came to life! I absolutely LOVE it!!!
