Don't you just love the new monster images by Stampotique's newest Artist, Kira Nichols!

The monster is stamped in Black Archival on Watercolor paper, then masked.  To create the BG on both panels I used the Watercolor Distress Technique, using Ranger Distress Inks in Mustard Seed, Peeled Paint and Rusty Hinge.  Once dry, I removed the mask on the monster and stamped the sentiment in Ranger Black Archival.  To add color, I used STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, using Gamsol for blending, then added highlights with STAEDTLER Triplus Fineliners.  For the background panel, I added the Honeycomb in Ranger Black ink, and the Hexagon in Gesso.
