Rubber band Background

Rubber band Background

I tried the rubber band background technique.  I really like the look of the background.  I took a clear block and wrapped different width rubber bands on it.  Some were twisted and some were flat on the block.  I used 3 different color inks.  I went lightest to darkest when I stamped. I took the ink pad and tapped in on the rubber bands to make sure they were covered and just stamped on my paper.  The green was the last color I used and I stamped diagonally on the paper for more texture.

Because the background is so busy I didn't use a lot of stamps. I only used 3 stamps.  I used Aria, the butterfly from Fairy Bugs and Mystic Swirl in Versafine Clair Nocturne.  I went around the Mystic Swirl with a gold gel pen to have it stand out and also put some gold and white in Aria's hair.  For Aria's wings I outlined with a gold gel pen and filled in with Nuvo Dream Drops Indigo Eclipse.  I colored the butterfly wings with an orange gel pen and then put Stickles Star Dust on them.  I used distress Dusty Concord ink to ground Aria.  I  took a paper towel and tore a shape to look like a hill, put the paper towel under Aria  and used a blending brush to apply the ink for the ground.
