Vintage Couple on a Steampunk Stroll

Greetings, Chris here and today I am excited to share this art-sy page I created to play with this month's Steampunk challenge at Blank Page Muse. My vision was to imitate  a romantic looking "art" piece except using steampunk images, all while playing with my new watercolor markers. 

This project features

Other supplies need to re-create this project:
Mixed media paper, card stock, alcohol markers, water brush, archival ink

  • Stamp images onto mixed media paper with archival ink.
    I chose mixed media paper (instead of watercolor papers) for this project because the images have fine detail that tends to get muddied when stamping on textured watercolor paper. 
  • When stamping the Blank Page Muse Zebra towing an Airship Steampunk Art Rubber Stamp,    I masked off the zebra because I wasn't sure where my horizon line was going to end up. 

  • Using watercolor markers, draw in your "lane".  I did end up expanding my lane to the horizon. 

  • Draw in hills and add ink to grassy areas. Blend with a water brush. 

  • You can see the blended finished look.  

  • Color in your couple as desired. 

  • Color in and blend you sky and flying vehicles.
    Add dots of red ink and soften by dabbing with a waterbrush to imitate the look of field of flowers. 

I hope you are inspired to get creative with you stamps!
