Amazing Trickling Water and Hanging Droplets

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design today for Designs by Ryn using her new amazing Hanging Droplets Set and Trickling Water Set 2 stamps. I also experimented with Kristal Gel by Viva and Ryn's Floral Spiral stencil.  Ryn has a talent for capturing the 3D look in her original, unique and hand-drawn water effects stamps.  See more water designs here in her Texture stamps section.


To create the background I started by using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink with water and an acrylic block.   Next I added circles using the same Distress Ink and TCW Circles Explosion stencil.

I used Kristal Gel medium (by Viva) over Ryn's Floral Spiral stencil, when it was dry I sprayed Midnight Dylusions ink, spritzed water and let it run.  After drying again I stamped the large stamp from Trickling Water Set 2 and small stamp from Hanging Droplets Set with cobalt Archival ink.  I blended Sapphire DI over top here & there with a lettering stencil.   I painted the water images a little with Distress Inks, water and a brush (using my craft mat) and highlighted with a white pen.  Update:  I did not use Gel on the water droplets, the images are amazing, seriously :)

Tuski the Moth was painted with Tombow markers, cut out and popped up. I added lots of glitter to her (him?).  You can see the glitter gel below, it acted as a resist to the spray ink.


Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirley x

Wow, stunning card Shirley. Beautiful colours and the Kystel Gel seems to make the water droplets look a little wetter.

Thanks so much for the kind words about the designs! I'm so happy you're enjoying them :D Great use of the crystal gel with the stencil. I really like how you can see the background pattern through it. Also am really liking the colour that you added to the drops. The colour palette in this and sparkles on Tsuki give this card a magical feel. Stunning art!

You sure have a way with mixed media and this one is beautiful. Love all the different elements you added for such a colourful finish.

What a beautiful card Shirley and Ryn's stamps are gorgeous especially all the different varieties of water drops which are so realistic. The stencilling works well in the background too and that moth is a wonderful colour. I hope you are doing well and have a great weekend. x

Shona said...

It is so hard to believe that those aren't real drops of water. I would have a much easier time believing that they are real. (Are you pulling our leg?!) Your card is so beautiful, I love it when you use Ryn's products, the results are always stunning!

Wishing you and yours a lovely weekend.
