There is a new challenge called Sketch the art and it has a different kind of theme, it asks you to base your card on one of the paintings of a well known artist. Their first theme is Van Goughs Stary night and you can interpret it any way you like.
I decided to experiment with a brayer that I have had in my craft draw for ages so long I can't actually remember buying it and shame on me I have never used it, so I decided this was the time. I thought I would use this silhoette stamp in the forground relating to the black in the painting and then do yellow and blue brayer over white swirls I tried to draw with a white and a clear sakura pen. I embossed the moon with moon glow moonpearls embossing powder covered with clear and then used the brayer, yellow first then blue. The blue totally obliterated the yellow which I couldn't get a smooth line on and the swirls were horrid!
Back to the drawing board. This time I decided to colour the moon in yellow sakura covered with the clear sakura and drew dotty swirl patterns and then brayered in blue. I love how the brayer gives such a smooth even finish and decided that even though I had obviously missed bits on the moon it actually made the moon look more realistic. So here's my take on Van Goghs stary night. I thought mounting it on cream pearlised card worked well and the simplicity doesn't distract from the drama of the blue .
