Blue Fern Sketch for May 2013

Blue Fern Studios has a monthly design challenge designed by the creative amazing Michele Singh.   This is my piece for the month of May.

I wanted to make the image blend into the page so I used my inks and stamps to create the background.

The image is Emile Munier 1892 Mother and Child - part of a private collection, no restrictions found.

Here are the elegant Blue Fern pieces that were used:

Blue Fern Studios Lattice Fence -074998
 Blue Fern Studios Brigitte Butterfly Set 074387

The fence was primed with gesso first, then dabbed with a few inks to make it blend better.

The lovely Brigitte Butterfly was painted with Adirondack acrylic paint then inked and topped with Sitckles in aqua to give it more flight.

Thanks for looking and consider playing along with the challenge - or liking us on Facebook.
