wednesday stamper - colouring

These 4 ATC are for a swap with the theme The Elements.
I decided to combine the challenge with this weeks wednesday stamper and show how changing the colour can change the whole feeling of a piece.

I used several colouring media. The stamped fairies were coloured with pencils, each one in colours to suit their element, the wings were then given a quick coat of twinkling H2O.
and they were cut out (unfortunately they lost there antennae at this stage!!)
The base is canvas on chipboard, painted with a solid colour of acrylic paint and while the paint was still wet given a dusting of perfect pearls on the edges.
The backgrounds were then painted in acrylic paint according to their theme.

so here they are:

  4. Colour can make such a difference to a piece can't it. You get such a varied feel using hot and cold colours. I've been experimenting with colour recently and its suprising how your emotions change as you create using the more firey colours against the calmer blues.

    My fave here has to be the fire element. :0)
